His idol has always been Radamel Falcao

Fiorentina has pulled off a remarkable coup. From Real Madrid, for practically nothing, comes Luka Jovic, a 24-year-old striker of erratic but remarkable talent. Exploded in Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2018/19 season (27 goals), he lands at Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 for more than 60 million euros.

In the blanca jersey he has several problems. He fails to settle in and plays very little (3 goals in 47 appearances). Capable of playing both as a central striker and as an outside forward, he has an important physique and remarkable speed. As a child, his idol was Radamel Falcao. Fiorentina bet on his desire for redemption. He arrives on a permanent basis but, after the first two years, he will be able to decide his future (2.5 million euro per season salary).
