According to widespread media reports, former Premier League champions Chelsea are allegedly interested in a move for FC Barcelona star midfielder Ivan Rakitic as the European star becomes rather unsettled at the Catalan club.

That’s as per, who also claim the West London club are eyeing the World Cup finalist as he seems a perfect fit in Chelsea midfield that fit into the style of play regularly deployed by Italian tactician Maurizio Sarri.

The midfielder is one of the most intelligent and cultured passers in the world of football, the 30-year-old box-to-box midfielder could certainly be a useful signing in the Blues midfield somewhat over-relying on summer signing Jorginho this term, while central midfielder Mateo Kovacic is only at the West London club on a season loan from La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Still, fans will have to wait to find out if Barcelona will let such a vital and experienced footballer leave, even if the Croatian feels undervalued by the club.

Top Spanish publication Don Balon also named possible renewed interest in Ivan Rakitic from Premier League giant Manchester United and French Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain, who were both connected with the ex-Sevilla star in the summer transfer window.
