Serie A clubs could be in for a late transfer scramble as Serbian reports claim Real Madrid are ready to loan out Luka Jovic.
Jovic only joined Madrid in June, arriving from Eintracht Frankfurt in a €60m deal, but he failed to score at all during preseason.
That has prompted several outlets in Serbia to claim the 21-year-old did not convince Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane and that he will be sent out on loan.
His availability could alert the likes of Inter and Roma, whose plans in the market hinge on Edin Dzeko.
However, it remains to be seen if both sides would accept a dry loan, while Marca warns the player has no intention of leaving the Santiago Bernabeu so soon.
The hitman netted 36 times in two seasons at Eintracht, with 27 of those goals coming in 2018-19.
