Bayern Munich are not interested in signing Liverpool target Luka Jovic from Benfica - though Real Madrid could be set to enter the frame.

The 21-year-old has shone for Eintracht Frankfurt, on loan from the Portuguese club, and the Bundesliga side have agreed a deal for the Serb to stay permanently.

But Jovic's form - which has seen him score 25 times in 42 appearances this terms - means Frankfurt could look to sell him on at a profit in the summer transfer window. 

Barcelona and Real have been linked with Jovic, while Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool are also believed to be keen, but it's the European champions who look to be in pole position to nab the striker.

Amid the speculation over Jovic's future, Frankfurt director Freddy Bobic told ZDF: "There's a real possibility that Jovic signs for Real Madrid.

"I hope and want him to stay here at Eintracht, but I'm also realistic and know that if a big club like Real Madrid want him then we haven't got a chance of keeping him."

Of Jovic's 25 goals, 17 of those have come in the Bundesliga.

The Serb made his two-year loan deal from Benfica to Germany permanent last week, but it is looking increasingly likely that the Serb will not be around by the time the new Bundesliga season kicks off.

Bobic told Sky Sports in March: "He's developing, he's doing great, he's scoring a lot of goals. So, where's the pain threshold, what do I know, we'll see, but not in February, not in March.

"Such players are in the focus of big clubs. That's what I see in the scouting lists that are presented to me now for every home game, because everyone is represented. [Scouts] did not come two years ago, they flew to Frankfurt and continued to the next stadium."
