Real Madrid have agreed a €60m deal for coveted Eintracht Frankfurt start Luka Jovic.
As per Spanish publication AS, he will sign a six-year deal with Zinedine Zidane's side. Negotiations for Jovic accelerated in recent days, with the details now confirmed.
The Serbian striker has become one of the most wanted strikers in world football this season after a stunning breakthrough campaign in Germany.
Jovic has scored 26 goals in 44 games in all competitions this season for Frankfurt, with his most recent strike coming in the Europa League semi-final against Chelsea.
The Bundesliga side recently announced Jovic's arrival on a permanent basis after initially signing him on loan from Benfica.

But it was never in doubt that the German outfit would cash in on the 21-year-old Serbian international this summer.
AS report that Jovic has known for weeks that the Bernabeu was his most likely destination.
He even got in contact with Real players through mutual friends to get an understanding of Madrid life and asked about potential places to buy a house.
It is also said Jovic's arrival will work in tandem with the squad's top goal scorer Karim Benzema.
The pair may alternate as the central striker, or Zidane may opt to play both forwards at the same time.
With the €50m signing of Porto defender Eder Militao already announced earlier in the year, it looks inevitable that Real will be splashing some serious cash this summer.
Eden Hazard, Christian Eriksen, Paul Pogba and Tanguy Ndombele are just some of the players across Europe linked with a switch to the Spanish capital.
After a dismal season which will see them finish third in La Liga and without a trophy, this level of overhaul is clearly needed for an ageing, lacklustre Los Blancos squad.
