AC Milan have officially completed the permanent signing of Luka Jovic from Fiorentina. The former Real Madrid striker has signed a one-year contract with the Italian club.
Jovic, who joined Fiorentina on loan from Real Madrid last season, impressed during his time in Italy. His performances caught the attention of AC Milan, who were keen to secure his services on a permanent basis.
The 23-year-old striker has now put pen to paper on a one-year deal with Milan. The club announced the signing on their official website, expressing their delight at adding Jovic to their squad.
Jovic began his professional career at Red Star Belgrade before moving to Benfica in 2016. He enjoyed a successful spell at the Portuguese club, scoring 27 goals in 48 appearances.
His performances earned him a move to Eintracht Frankfurt in 2017, where he continued to impress. Jovic’s prolific form in Germany attracted the attention of Real Madrid, who signed him in 2019.
However, his time at the Spanish club did not go as planned, and he was loaned out to Fiorentina last season. Despite the loan spell being short-lived, Jovic made a significant impact, scoring nine goals in 25 appearances.
Now, Jovic is looking forward to a fresh start at AC Milan. The Serbian international will be hoping to showcase his abilities and make a positive impact for his new team.
AC Milan finished second in Serie A last season, narrowly missing out on the league title to Inter Milan. With the addition of Jovic to their attacking options, they will be aiming to mount a serious challenge for the title in the upcoming campaign.
Jovic’s signing is seen as a statement of intent from AC Milan, who are determined to strengthen their squad and compete at the highest level. The club has already made several other notable signings this summer, including the likes of Olivier Giroud and Fikayo Tomori.
With their new signings and a strong squad, AC Milan will be hoping to build on their recent success and establish themselves as one of the top teams in Italian football once again.
