Chelsea loanee Marko Marin is set to return to Stamford Bridge after reports in Spain claimed Sevilla have already told him they are not interested in prolonging his spell in La Liga.
The German playmaker has endured a mix spell during his one season on loan at the Europa League champions, showing his quality with some top performances but also struggling to secure regular playing time due to a number of injuries.
According to Sevilla-based newspaper Estadio Deportivo, the Spanish outfit have already told Marin that he can return to west London – as they are not likely to make his move permanent or extend his loan move for another season.
Recently, Sevilla sporting director Ramón Rodríguez 'Monchi' suggested the club were disappointed with the lack of impact delivered by the Chelsea loanee.
"I've talked to him a lot. He has a lot of quality and he should analyse why he has not proved more often," he said.
However, his future at Stamford Bridge looks also uncertain after the club added Mohamed Salah to their attacking ranks in January following Juan Mata's move to Manchester United – with the former Basel star joining Eden Hazard, Willian and Andre Schurrle as attacking options.
The Blues signed Marin in the summer of 2012 after paying around £6m to Werder Bremen to secure his services and they may now consider to sell him to recoup a fraction of that amount.
Reports in Germany claim that a number of Bundesliga sides are still interesting in his services, as the 25-year-old retains a high-profile in his homeland where he used to be considered one of the most talented young players around Europe, having been part of the Germany's 2010 World Cup squad.
