The Croatia international is reportedly attracting interest from Anfield and he has now reiterated his stance that he will only stay with the Primera Liga side if they bolster their squad.
"I'm really flattered that I'm being linked with such a big club like Liverpool," Rakitic told 24sata.
"I heard that something is happening, but for now there is no concrete offer.
"My brother, who is taking care of my career, is doing all the business about my future.
"But I will repeat what I said before: I will only stay at Sevilla if they will strengthen the team.
"I made it quite clear about that and they know that they have to buy some good players."
