Croatian international flattered by Liverpool talk

rakitic.jpgLiverpool fans are expressing interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern after it was claimed by Sky Sports that Ivan Rakitic is flattered to be linked to the club.

The 25-year-old has claimed that the links between himself and Brendan Rodgers’ men is something he is proud of, and whilst he is unsure of where his future lies, he certainly would not rule a move to the Reds out.

He claimed: “I’m really flattered that I’m being linked with such a big club like Liverpool.

“I heard that something is happening, but for now there is no concrete offer.

“My brother, who is taking care of my career, is doing all the business about my future.

“I will only stay at Sevilla if they will strengthen the team.

“I made it quite clear about that and they know that they have to buy some good players.”

Sevilla are of course facing an uncertain financial future which Manchester City have already capitalised on in signing star winger Jesus Navas. Given how much he wants to strengthen his squad, it would come as no shock if Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool also swooped in for Croatian international Rakitic at a bargain basement rate.

Will Rakitic be making the move to Anfield this summer or is this mere speculation? Rate this rumour below.
