Chelsea are set to beat Liverpool in signing Sevilla playmaker Ivan Rakitic this summer, according to Football Direct News.
The Croat international has helped the Andalusian outfit reach the final of the Europa League this season, which will be played on the fourteenth at the Juventus Stadium, while also playing an instrumental role in the La Liga as the Sevillistas were able to, yet again, secure a slot in Europe's secondary club tournament next term.

He has contributed 15 goals and 19 assists in all competitions, making heads from top clubs turn.
It is claimed that the 26-year-old's future with his current side remains uncertain as his brother and agent, Dejan Rakitic, failed to hold discussions regarding an extension, with the former's contract set to run out in June 2015.
The Blues are suggested to be making an offer of £22million to lure Sevilla to sell their superstar, a source revealed to FDN.
