The first is Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic who could be available after a disastrous season in Spain.

27-year-old winger Filip Kostic is also wanted by Kovac, with his club Eintracht Frankfurt valuing him at €30m.

Both Jovic and Kostic are Serbian internationals and Kovac trained Jovic during his days at Frankfurt.
