Real Madrid sent scouts to watch Jovic in Europa League against Benfica

The Bundesliga club are flying with the 21-year-old spearheading their attack, now inside the top-four with a four-point gap to their nearest rivals - and qualifying for the Champions League is Jovic's top priority.

They soon equalised through their own highly-sought striker Luka Jovic - who, funnily enough, is on loan from Benfica and will join permanently in the summer - before the Benfica number 79 struck again before half-time with a low drive from outside the box.

With Eintracht confirming they will use the €12m buying option to get Jovic, the striker is considered long gone, but Benfica still feel they should have used him better. "He wants to be in the Champions League with Eintracht and stay in Frankfurt".

"A few days ago Luka told me "Dad, I'm not anxious about money".

"Above all, Luka wants to play football and he does not know if he can do it at Barcelona".

We have seen with the way Wolves have played against the top six this season that they have the ability to compete with the top sides in the division and it would not be a surprise to see them playing Champions League football in a few seasons.

Luka Jovic levelled for the German side, but Felix's second and Ruben Dias' header put Benfica in control. According to Marca, Real Madrid are among the clubs interested in a move for the Serbian and sent scouts to watch their man in action on Thursday.

Felix, a graduate of Benfica's youth set-up, is now the youngest player to score a hat-trick in the Europa League at 19 years and 152 days.
