Even though Pep Guardiola already has Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus up front for Manchester City, it looks like the Spaniard is keen to strengthen the team's offense this summer.

That's why City have just joined the race to sign Eintracht Frankfurt's standout striker Luka Jovic, who's also under Real Madrid, Bayern Munchen, Chelsea, and Barcelona's radar.

The 21-year-old Serbian is currently leading the Bundesliga in scoring this season, netting 21 scores in 31 caps for the Germans this season.

While Barcelona looks bound to make a huge splash in the market and sign the Serbian, the Citizens have enough money in their arks to try and pull the trigger for him, as per Daily Mail.

Nonetheless, Frankfurt must sign him first, as he's on a two-year loan from Benfica, so they need to trigger his buy clause of €6 million before selling him from €60m to €70m.

Jovic has been drawing the attention for European giants ever since making his professional debut for Red Star Belgrade, becoming their youngest goalscorer ever after sending one past the goalkeeper at the tender age of 16.

Even despite Aguero's great run as of late, it's been clear that Pep just doesn't trust the injury-prone striker enough, and we all know how much he loves young talents.
