Liverpool Tempting Rakitic to Join – He Especially Likes Klopp

Liverpool need a world class midfielder to replace Philippe Coutinho at Anfield and reports suggest that they want to sign Ivan Rakitic from the Catalan giants.

Diario Gol have claimed that Liverpool, Arsenal, and Juventus have been interested in the versatile midfielder and are tempting him join.

The Croatian international might be tempted to move to Liverpool if reports from last month are anything to go by. Don Balon claimed that Rakitic especially likes the Reds’ German boss Jurgen Klopp.

Diario Gol state that Rakitic is well aware of the fact that Coutinho has arrived to play in his position and therefore, he is seeking life away from the Nou Camp.

The Spanish source have mentioned that the good thing for Ivan is that Philippe is cup tied in the Champions League so the Croatian will not lose his starting place in that competition but things could change in the domestic competitions.

It is further mentioned that Rakitic has got offers on the table but he wants to wait for the World Cup. If he and Croatia do well in Russia then he might get better offers in the summer.

Coutinho’s departure is not Liverpool’s only issue. They may even end up losing Emre Can, who has been productive this season. The Merseysiders want Keita this month, the player is keen on moving (via Mirror) as well but they will probably have to wait for next summer for the deal to be finally sealed.

In your opinion, should Klopp splash the cash to sign Rakitic?

    Ashley Tough 9 months

    My main concern is Rakitic’s age of 29 as Klopp is building not only a team but a squad of young players as I think Klopp is wanting a team and squad that can play and Grow together for years to come like Liverpool teams of Old !! If they can get Rakitic on Loan or on the Cheap ( wishful thinking ) then he’s going to cost is anything from £45M plus I expect but for how long 2 years maybe at best so I’m still for a younger player
    such as Lemar or even Mahrez but maybe there is better out there and lets not forget Leon Goretzka who’s available on a free and available for all to talk to Now for a summer move or offer Schalke a small fee now !! Just leave it to the True special
    One Jurgen Klopp to spin his magic !!
