Chelsea drop Luka Jovic interest for Ajax star

Timothy Aiyeku



The English Premier League outfit Chelsea are set to drop their interest in German Bundesliga Luka Jovic as the summer transfer window approaches.

Reports claim that Luka Jovic has already agreed on a move to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid and could be set to leave the club as soon the summer window is opened.

Luka Jovic was able to give a good account of himself in the Europa League when the Frankfurt side faced Chelsea in the semi-finals and that was able to capture the attention of the Spanish side.

With Chelsea set to lose out on the Star Player, they are reportedly paying attention to Ajax star winger David Neres as an option for the next season.

However, it is yet to be seen if the West London outfit will be able to secure any player in this summer transfer window as a result of the transfer ban which has not been lifted.

The Blues seem positive that the transfer ban will be lifted as they have already approached the Court of Arbitration for Sport to tender their appeal.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will have to pay the sum of £40 million to land the Ajax star who has impressed for the Dutch side this season and has been an important part of their success.
