Spanish newspaper Marca has revealed that Lokomotiv Moscow are set to sign Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic.
Lokomotiv boss Slaven Bilic is well aware of the player’s qualities having coached him in the national team and is eager to get reunited with the midfielder in Russia.
With the club in a difficult financial situation, Sevilla officials are ready to accept a €10 million offer from the Russians, and all that’s left is for the player to agree on personal terms.
Rakitic is perfectly happy at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and not too keen on moving to Russia, but a big money offer could change his mind.
Lokomotiv Moscow are prepared to offer the midfielder a yearly wage of €2 million, while the offer could be further increased to meet the player’s demands.
The Croatia international has been in fine form this season, scoring 3 goals and setting up another 3 in 15 La Liga fixtures.
