Tottenham Hotspur keeping tabs on Ivan Rakitic

According to the Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo (h/t Daily Mail), Tottenham Hotspur have entered the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

The 32-year-old has been an integral part of the Catalan club’s success since making the move to the Nou Camp in 2014. He has, however, been relegated to a supporting role this season. This has forced him to consider his future at the club.

His future at the Nou Camp is a matter of much speculation. The signing of Frenkie De Jong has seen him fall down the pecking order.

He has enjoyed a trophy-laden stay at Barcelona, winning 12 major honours. In his six years with the Catalan giants, he has made 299 appearances and has scored 34 goals and 41 assists. (h/t Transfermarkt)

With him entering the final year of his Barcelona contract, it may finally be time to move on. Barcelona’s efforts to use him as a make-wight to sign Neymar has not gone down well with the Croatian either.

He has been left shaken by the lack of respect afforded to him in spite of his loyal service and wants to be somewhere where he is not treated akin to a sack of potatoes.

Rakitic is not short of suitors with the likes of Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Sevilla, and Napoli all keen on him. Sevilla is likely to present the biggest threat.

The Croatian star had earlier revealed that he dreams of a return to his former club. Rakitic spent three seasons at Sevilla before making the move to the Nou Camp. Spurs could take advantage of Barcelona’s interest in Tanguy Ndombele to work out a deal for the Croatian.

Jose Mourinho could be amenable to such a move as he is a fan of Rakitic and has not been on good terms with Ndombele.

Rakitic will easily be a regular in a team such as Tottenham Hotspur and Sevilla. Signing a player with the experience and pedigree of Rakitic would be excellent for our side.

The Croatian has played in some of football’s biggest games alongside some of the best in the game. He would act as both as an inspiration and a mentor to the younger players.
