The 17-year-old has scored six goals in 23 appearances this season, which has seemingly been enough to pique the interest of several high profile clubs across Europe.

Jovic has also played for the Serbia Under 19’s side, netting four times in seven games. However, anyone who does sign the teenager is unlikely to see any return for at least a couple of years.

The Primeira Liga duo have gained a reputation for bringing in young talent and making it fulfil its potential before selling on at a massive profit. However, the Premier League pair have managers who have previous developing players for their first teams.

Arsene Wenger has a long history of bringing footballers through the academy at the North London club. Meanwhile Mauricio Pochettino created a strong side from home grown players at Southampton and overseen the emergence of Harry Kane at White Hart Lane.
