Serbian coach Mladen Krstajic came out and spoke words of praise about Luka Jovic this week. The Eintracht Frankfurt forward has been rumored to be on his way to FC Barcelona next season. Krstajic compared the forward to current Barcelona striker Luis Suarez.

”I can compare the way Jovic plays to Luis Suarez. He’s a classic goalscorer, a decisive player who treats the ball very well and has a great understanding of the tactics.

“He’s adapted quicker than I expected to the Bundesliga. He should keep working because his progression will be unstoppable.”

Barcelona could do much worse than signing Jovic this summer. A young aggressive striker to study behind the wings of Luis Suarez would be a great future building plan for Barcelona.
