Manchester City throw their name into the hat for in-form Luka Jovic

Joao Felix became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in the Europa League on Wednesday night as Benfica beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-2 in the first leg of their quarter-final.

Luka Jovic is not interested in joining Barcelona, says the in-demand striker's father.

One of said potential suitors is Barcelona, who have been closely monitoring the Serbian striker this year, having seen the 21-year-old net 17 goals and chip in with a further five assists in the Bundesliga so far.

On loan in the Bundesliga from Benfica, Eintracht reportedly have the option to sign Jovic for €7million at the end of the season, a clause they are expected to trigger.

Jovic himself has said that he would be open to staying at Frankfurt if the team make it into Europe's top competition.

The father of the Serbia global, though, says a switch to LaLiga's leaders is not appealing at this stage due to fears over a lack of playing time.

Cain this week waded into the debate to say that he was being attacked because "I am an outspoken voice of conservatism". Mr Cain is one of two loyalists that Mr Trump has said he would like to place on the Fed board.

"He doesn't know if he can play football there". He also told me a few days ago that money is not a problem, he just want to have space to play.

Frankfurt are now on course for a top-four finish in the Bundesliga, which would see them qualify for the Champions League next season.

Luka Jovic levelled for the German side, but Felix's second and Ruben Dias' header put Benfica in control.

"Luka doesn't want to work against the interests of the club".

As they prepare to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League, one of the players they fear most still belongs to them.
