There has been some reports which have claimed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will look to rain on Liverpool’s parade by snatching Ivan Rakitic, according to the Daily Star website.
Brendan Rodgers has made the Sevilla star his top-target ahead of this summer’s transfer window, as he looks to add more quality to his side in hope of pushing on from this years brilliant campaign.
The Croatian is thought to be one of the most in-demand players in Europe right now, as there has been talk of a move away to look for a fresh challenge.
And the fact his brother and agent, Dejan Rakitic, failed to turn up to meeting’s with Sevilla regarding a contract renewal fueled talk even more.
