With the likes of Hakim Ziyechi and Timo Werner already in Chelsea's ranks for next campaign, the Blues are also looking to take advantage of Jovic's situation at the Bernabeu.

The Serbian international scored 36 goals and made nine assists in 75 games for former Bundesliga side Frankfurt.

But Jovic has failed to replicate the same form under Zinedine Zidane in the current campaign, netting just two goals in 25 appearances so far.

However, the youngster could join the youthful Frank Lampard's side who could partner him with German striker Werner in his attack next season.

Ziyech was signed for £37.8m in February while Werner's contract clause was RB Leipzig was activated as he agreed a £53m move to Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic has reportedly been threatened with jail term after ignoring the coronavirus self-isolation procedures.

The 22-year-old was given permission by his club to return to his family in Serbia provided he would quarantine himself.

Since the Spanish League has been shut down until early next month over the widely spread of deadly coronavirus that has crippled virtually everything at the moment.

Legit.ng also reported that Frank Lampard has insisted he is not concerned much about Chelsea's top-four chances despite his side's 3-0 defeat to Sheffield United on Saturday, July 11.

A brace by David McGoldrick and Oli McBurnie's goal was all the Blades needed to sink Chelsea at Bramall Lane.

The result dealt the Blues a massive blow to their top-four hopes and are in danger of dropping to fifth should Man United and Leicester win their fixtures.
