Ivan Rakitic is one of a number of Barcelona players that have been placed on the transfer list at the Nou Camp according to a recent report from Marca – and Tottenham fans have discussed signing the Croatian midfielder.
Rakitic, 32, has entered the final 12 months of his contract at Barcelona and is expected to be sold by the Nou Camp hierarchy – as they desperately look to raise funds to ease the financial burden of the global health crisis.
Now, Marca report that Rakitic is one of a huge 12 players on the transfer list – along with talents such as Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Arturo Vidal, Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho and plenty of others players.
Spanish newspaper SPORT claim in a separate report that Sevilla want to re-sign Rakitic with the 2018 World Cup finalist available for a bargain £13.5million. Spurs could do with a couple of midfielders.
Tanguy Ndombele has struggled since his move, with Jose Mourinho overlooking the France international on numerous occasions. He failed to start since the restart, while Oliver Skipp is expected to leave on loan.
Tottenham supporters have discussed the potential signing of Rakitic on Twitter, and many are all for the idea of signing the ex-Schalke midfielder if given the opportunity.
Compared to our midfield he’s a baller! As I keep saying recently.. If you wanna compete for Top 4 and trophies you need something more threatening in Midfield than Sissoko and Winks, apparently Thiago is also set to leave Bayern, another I’d take considering £30m price tag

I'd take him in a heartbeat. Class player who knows how to win.

Would be absolutely brilliant

This is the sort of signing that is a clear upgrade in his position. Not Willian and Lucas.

Jose certainly does like an experienced player (Ibra, Costa, Matic) and I am a big fan of Rakitic but, I'd imagine, he'd have to take a massive pay cut to come to us

Spurs need midfielders who can retain possession and play forward would be a good addition although I think once we get a holding midfielder gio and tanguy will come good but Saying that we need more cm options
