With FC Barcelona still on the hunt for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez, the Catalan giants have now reportedly agreed personal terms with the current leading goalscorer in the Bundesliga, who is also linked with Real Madrid.

The Blaugrana have been linked with a host of names to replace the ageing forward, but German publication Frankfurter Allgemeine suggest Eintracht Frankfurt’s Luka Jovic is the player they want.

The report claims Barcelona's bosses met with the player’s representatives for talks and personal terms were agreed, with both sides eyeing a transfer by the end of the current campaign.

As a consequence, the LaLiga leaders have seemingly won the race for one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe, with Real Madrid also said to be interested in Jovic’s services.

The 21-year-old joined Benfica in 2016, but has been on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt since the start of the 2017/18 campaign. He is currently the leading scorer in the German top flight with 14 strikes, one ahead of Robert Lewandowski and Marco Reus.

Frankfurt have a purchase option for Jovic, which they are understood to be keen on activating. This means Barca will need to negotiate a transfer with the Bundesliga side instead of the Portuguese club.

The Catalan giants followed a similar routine with their recent signing of Frenkie De Jong, who first agreed personal terms with the Spanish side before both clubs sorted out his transfer.
