Sevilla midfielder Ivan Rakitic is a target for a trio of Premier League clubs with Chelsea now joining the race.

Manchester United and Liverpool have already shown interest in the 25-year old Croatia international but now the Blues have poked their noses in according to reports.

It is believed that Rakitic is seeking a move to England's top flight after seeing former Sevilla teammates Alvaro Negredo and Jesus Navas head to Manchester City in the summer.
