Sevilla hope to have on-loan Chelsea winger Marko Marin in their squad for next season.
Marin joined Sevilla on loan from the Premier League team last summer but injuries have largely restricted his contribution to the campaign.
The Germany international has made only 13 appearances for the club so far after he was injured in early October, only making his return in the New Year.
There is no option to buy Marin but Sevilla are hopeful they will get to keep the 24-year-old for a further 12 months, AS reports.
Sevilla’s sporting director Monchi is currently in London and hopes to use his presence near to Chelsea to seal the deal.
Marin has previously said Sevilla have the money in place to sign him permanently but told an interviewer recently that he would have no complaint returning to his parent club.
