Luka Jovic: Arsenal to offer Real Madrid £50m to sign Serbian star

- Luka Jovic could move to the Premier League at the end of this season

- The Serbian joined Real Madrid in a deal around €60m but has failed to justify his price tag since then

- Arsenal are ready to give him a fresh challenge as they hope he will be a good replacement for want-away star Aubameyang

- Chelsea and Tottenham are also monitoring the player's progress at the Bernabeu

Arsenal have reportedly lined up Real Madrid flop Luka Jovic as a replacement for want-away star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when the summer transfer window opens.

The north Londoners are not confident the Gabonese striker whose contract with the club expires in 2021 will sign a new deal.

Aubameyang has been recently linked with a move to Barcelona as the Catalans want him to take over from aging Luis Suarez.

However, the Gunners will make a move for the forward should Los Blancos decide to sell him off barely one season at the Bernabeu.

Jovic has scored twice in 21 appearances across competitions for the Galacticos while the Belgian's debut season has been ravaged by series of injuries.

SunSport reports that Real splashed €60 million on the star after attracting their attention with 27 goals in 48 games for Eintracht Frankfurt last season.

He has however fallen out of favour with his current manager Zinedine Zidane after failing to replicate his feat in the Bundesliga in Spain.

Reports from the Gunners camp claims Mikel Arteta is ready to cough out £50 million to bring the striker to Emirates Stadium next season.
