Around $13 million of that will go to Benfica, who loaned and then sold Jovic to the German outfit.

Jovic scored 27 times in 47 appearances for Frankfurt, adding seven assists. His 17 Bundesliga goal sare third this season, five behind Golden Boot leader Robert Lewandowski.

If you haven’t seen much of Jovic, be prepared for him to become a bigger part of the soccer consciousness. With Eden Hazard (allegedly) among those providing service and Zidane guiding the striker, he could become the next household name.

He’s that talented.
