Manchester United fans are becoming increasingly impressed with Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic.
Jovic scored the opener in tonight’s Europa League semi-final first leg against Chelsea, guiding an excellent header into the bottom corner.
The Serbian has been in outstanding form this season for Bundesliga side Frankfurt, scoring 26 goals in all competitions, including 9 in the Europa League (WhoScored).
Jovic, 21, could act as a perfect replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who is considering his future at Old Trafford because of an uncertain role under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as reported by the DailyMail.
Lukaku has been poor for the Reds this season, and United fans are now already looking at a new potential striker as the maligned Belgian’s exit looms.
At just 21, Jovic is certainly a player the Reds should be keeping tabs on this summer, as one of Europe’s form strikers.
Many United fans are desperate to see Jovic in a red shirt next season:
2️⃣6️⃣ goals this season
9️⃣ in the Europa League
Luka Jovic is the real deal!
Chelsea go a goal down to Frankfurt and the stadium ERUPTS 🔥 pic.twitter.com/q4yVkj87aA

A team i would like @ManUtd to assemble in the coming years. Pace. Power. Leadership. Technical ability. It has it all. Some of these young players will be world class. Chiesa and Sancho will light up our wing for a decade. Jovic our main man. Midfield including the bench 😱😱😱 pic.twitter.com/NIa04R5mK7
