According to a report from Sport, Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic is said to be a big transfer target for Chelsea in the summer. Maurizio Sarri is said to be interested in bringing the 30 year old to Stamford Bridge in the summer, as the Blues gear up for a potential title push next season. Chelsea are currently embroiled in a battle with several other sides in the race to finish in the top four, whereas Rakitic is part of a Barcelona side that are leading the way in La Liga. The Croatian international, who was first called up to the senior team back in 2007, has been at the Nou Camp since 2014 when he made the jump over from Sevilla. In that time he’s been able to cement himself as a consistent force in the middle of the park for the Spanish champions, although it’s believed that Chelsea would put in a very tempting offer in order to try and lure him over to English football.
