Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic is on the verge of sealing a move to Serie A side Fiorentina.
The Serbian arrived in Madrid for €63m from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019 with a lot of expectations but found limited game time owing to the form of Karim Benzema and with the World Cup coming up, he wants to revive his career by changing environments.

Sky Italia says Fiorentina is in advanced talks to sign Jovic on a straight loan with a deal expected to be announced officially later today.
Real are set to pay 50 percent of the player's wages next season as they expect to offload him if they can find the right suitor next summer.
