Barca target Jovic to stay at Frankfurt

The father of Eintracht Frankfurt star striker Luka Jovic has told German newspaper Bild that his son will snub Barcelona and stay at the Bundesliga club next season.

Serbian striker Jovic, 21, has been linked with several of Europe's top clubs after a breakthrough season in which he has scored 24 goals and fired Frankfurt into the last eight of the Europa League.

Ahead of Frankfurt's quarter-final first leg with Benfica on Thursday, Jovic's father said that, while Spanish giants Barcelona have made an approach, his son is more likely to stay at Frankfurt next season.

"Luka has had requests, including one from Barcelona, but is not interested," Milan Jovic told Bild on Thursday.

"He doesn't know if he can play football there -- he wants to get to the Champions League with Eintracht and stay there."

"He came to me a few days ago and said 'Dad, it's not about the money, I want to play football'."
