Marca has recently reported that Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic is considering the possibility of a loan move away from the Spanish capital this summer. It is understood that the Serbian marksman wants more playing minutes and is looking at potential destinations away from the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium during this summer transfer window (via Marca).
Jovic’s Poor Numbers At Real Madrid Last Season
The Serbian attacker endured a debut campaign full of frustrations under Zinedine Zidane’s tutelage in the last term as he failed to get a regular run of games under his belt. The 22-year-old ended the previous season with just two goals and two assists to his name in 27 matches in all competitions which proves just how lacklustre he has been for the Madrid giants so far.
When we delve deep into Jovic’s stats, it is clear just how much he has struggled to impact the game on the decisive end of the pitch. The former Bundesliga forward averaged 0.8 shots, 0.3 key passes and 0.3 dribbles per game in the 2019-20 La Liga season. At least the seven-time Serbian international distributed possession relatively well in the final third after making 80.6% of his attempted passes in the Spanish top tier (stats via whoscored).
The Bijeljina-born frontman needs to ensure regular playing minutes if he wants to turn his career around in European football. Hence, it is only logical for him to look at potential destinations so that he can earn more first-team football during this new campaign.
What Are The Serbian Forward’s Best Attributes?
Jovic is a deceptively quick centre-forward and built up a reputation for being a lethal finisher in front of the opposition goal during his time with Eintracht Frankfurt, where he banged in 36 goals and provided nine assists in 75 appearances across all fronts.
However, the Serbian sensation has gone nowhere near to producing that kind of numbers in Spain thus far. He is a decent dribbler with the ball and packs a lot of power with his shot attempts, so he could play a crucial role for any top-flight side in Europe if they are prepared to take a chance on him this summer.
Should Zidane Allow Jovic To Leave On Loan This Summer?
It is only fair to the player if Los Blancos allowed him to leave on loan as it will help Jovic to come back as a better version of him next summer. The Serbian has struggled to adapt to Zidane’s style of play at the Bernabeu, so maybe a season away from the club could enable him to rediscover his old form and stake a claim for a regular starting spot at Madrid in the 2021-22 campaign.
The reigning Spanish champions have currently got Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo as their options for the centre-forward position, so they have enough strength in depth to cope with Jovic’s absence this season.
