Sevilla want on loan Chelsea star Marko Marin to extend his stay in Spain next season, according to reports.

Spanish newspaper Football Espana, citing AS, suggests that Sevilla are keen to ensure that the 24-year-old, who largely flopped during his first 12 months after arriving at Chelsea, is with the club with next year’s campaign.

Marin’s contribution to Sevilla has been somewhat restricted this season through injury, but it’s believed that they are aiming to try and convince his parent club to give him more time to establish himself there, despite not having the option to buy him permanently.

It’s thought that Sevilla’s sporting director, Ramón Rodríguez Verdejo - also known as Monchi - is in London currently and will attempt to use his presence to hold negotiations with Chelsea over a potential extension to the loan deal currently in place.

Marin transferred to Stamford Bridge from Werder Bremen in 2012, but only managed six Premier League appearances before falling down the pecking order.

Though it’s unlikely Chelsea will actively seek to get rid of the German attacking-midfielder, Jose Mourinho may view him as surplus to requirements in his current squad.
