AC Milan are one of four clubs interested in signing Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic before the window ends, according to a report.
Pioli stated during an interview with DAZN earlier in the week that he feels he is well stocked in the attacking department thanks to the positive signs shown in preseason by Lorenzo Colombo.
Now, Calciomercato.com have thrown their hat into the ring by claiming that Zinedine Zidane is happy to let Jovic leave on loan after a difficult debut season at the Bernabeu in which he scored just twice.
Zidane considers the former Eintracht Frankfurt star to be a luxury second or third choice to Karim Benzema, and while the asking price for a permanent exit would be over €50m, no club will spend that amount.
A loan therefore seems easier and there is no shortage of interested clubs, especially in Germany and Italy. In the Bundesliga both his former club Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha Berlin have contacted his agent, while Milan and Inter have also expressed their interest.
In fact, the report adds that Jovic is at the top of the wish list for Milan but only on loan – a large investment is excluded.
