Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is seriously considering a move for Sevilla midfield schemer Ivan Rakitic.

The Croatia international has baulked at Sevilla attempts to open new contract talks and admits he is considering his future in Spain.

El Correo de Andalucía says Rodgers had scouts posted at last weekend's clash between Sevilla and Villarreal to make another check on Rakitic.

Rakitic did not disappoint, creating both goals in Sevilla's 2-1 win.
