    Real Madrid put Arsenal transfer target Luka Jovic up for sale as £53m flop ‘goes into quarantine over Covid-19 fears’

    REAL MADRID are reportedly willing to listen to offers for Arsenal target Luka Jovic this summer.
    The 22-year-old has endured a disappointing debut season at the Bernabeu – scoring just twice in 25 games in all competitions.

    Jovic – who penned a six-year deal with Los Blancos when he joined from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer – now looks to be on the move again.
    The front page of Spanish newspaper Marca states that Real are unconvinced about his long-term future and are ready to cut ties with the £53million forward.
    It had been speculated that Mikel Arteta earmarked Jovic as a possible replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at Arsenal.
    But SunSport previously reported how the Gunners face competition from Milan in the race to prise the Serbian away from Madrid.

    Jovic may have already played his last game for Zinedine Zidane after being forced to go into self-isolation.
    Marca claim that a friend of the striker who he has been in contact with has tested positive for coronavirus.
    While his own test came back negative, he has been forced to undergo a period of self-isolation and has not been at training for the last two days.
    Jovic is now unlikely to be available for Madrid’s clash against Alaves on Friday night.

    He had previously been warned by former coach Dragoslav Stepanovic that he is ruining his career after breaking quarantine rules in March to fly to Serbia to visit his girlfriend.
    The couple are currently expecting their first child together later this year.
    Serbian model Sofija Milosevic showed off her baby bump on Instagram with the caption: “Good morning sunshine.”

    Dortmund and Leipzig told to cough up £50m transfer fee by Norwich for England U21 star Godfrey with Arsenal also keen

    BORUSSIA DORTMUND and RB Leipzig have been told to cough up £50million for Ben Godfrey by Norwich City.

    Despite the Canaries looking almost certain to be relegated from the Premier League, the club are adamant their 22-year-old ace will not be leaving on the cheap.
    They believe he will soon become a fully-fledged member of Gareth Southgate senior England squad and are demanding the hefty £50m from interested parties, report Sky Sports.
    However, it is believed that Dortmund and Leipzig only value Godfrey at HALF that price.
    The defender featured in Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat at Watford, his 29th of the season so far, but was unable to stop his side sliding further towards the trap door.

    That left Norwich ten points from safety with just four matches remaining.
    But with Godfrey under contract until 2023, they are determined to get top price for the ex-York City ace.
    In what has been a difficult campaign, he has impressed under Daniel Farke this term in the top-flight.
    And it is not just on the continent he has caught the eye.

    Arsenal have also been monitoring his displays while Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with his move for him. More
