Sevilla supporters plan to keep Marko Marin in Andalusia by finding the German international a girlfriend.

German tabloid Bild say supporters have hatched the plan to make the on-loan Chelsea winger's stay permanent after club captain Ivan Rakitić was wooed by a local girl.

Croatian Rakitić found love in girlfriend Raquel two years ago and the couple married earlier this year.

Marin, signed from Werder Bremen in 2012, made just 16 appearances for Chelsea last season but has already gone down as well as paella in Spain.
