Chelsea are reportedly set to call back their German starlet, Marko Marin from his loan spell at Sevilla at the end of the season.
Chelsea bought the Borussia Monchengladbach-trained player from Werder Bremen in the summer of 2012 but could not stake a claim in the team, making seven starts and 13 substitute appearances in an underwhelming first season.
In order to boost his development, the 25-year old once described as the ‘German Messi’ was loaned out to Sevilla last summer and has been impressive in his 26 appearances this season, providing five assists and scoring twice.
On the back of his impressive appearances, Marin revealed that he is set to return to his parent club who are reportedly looking at giving the Yugoslavia-born player another chance to prove himself amid reports that Sevilla want an extension of his loan deal.
“My future is still undecided. We’ll sit down after the season and talk about my situation. Sevilla wants me to stay here, but there are signs from England that they want me back. I’m flattered and proud that they want me to stay here. The fans are quickly earn the hearts of the players,” Said the high rated German.
It will be interesting to see where the former Wolfsburg player will fit in at Chelsea with an attacking line-up of Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard, Mohamed Salah, Oscar and Willian all vying for the limited slots behind the lone striker.
Marin has impressed at Sevilla when fit as injuries continue to hamper him blossoming into the star Chelsea envisaged and the club would need to solve his injury problems if they want to enjoy their investment on the player who has decided to represent his adopted country, German at international level and has won 16 caps.
