FC Barcelona transfer news: LaLiga champions 'agree' personal terms with Bundesliga top scorer

According to the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine, the Eintracht Frankfurt forward and Bundesliga top scorer has reached an agreement with the Catalan club over a contract.

The report claims Barcelona's bosses met with the player's representatives for talks and personal terms were agreed, with both sides eyeing a transfer by the end of the current campaign.

As a outcome, the LaLiga leaders have seemingly won the race for one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe, with Real Madrid also said to be interested in Jovic's services. It's a similar case to what happened with Frenkie De Jong: first agreeing terms with the player and later with the club.

Overall, Jovic has scored 19 goals and registered four assists in 27 games across all competitions.

Although the Serbia global is on loan from Benfica, Frankfurt have stated their intention to exercise the buyout option in his contract, meaning any suitors would need to negotiate with the German outfit for his signature.
