Some of the Premier League’s biggest sides have been purring over the Italian midfielder with Chelsea reportedly in the mix with Arsenal and Liverpool to sign the 21-year-old playmaker.
However, he’s just admitted that he’s not interested in leaving his Italian employers this winter, next summer or at all next year, with the summer of 2015 appearing to be the best time to go after him.
“Maybe if I keep playing, I really will be worth that amount (€10 million). Staying another season with Verona will only make me better,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
German midfielder Marin has been at the club since January last year and is on loan with the Spanish club until the end of the season.
His aim is to show enough to be considered for a first team place at Chelsea next season, something which would be even more difficult than it currently is with the presence of Jorginho at Stamford Bridge.
Marin has already had a big impact with Sevilla producing two goals and four assists for the club across his 11 appearances in all competitions. He’s doing everything that Jose Mourinho would have expected from him.
Lucas Piazon is the other forward thinking, creative playmaker Chelsea currently have on loan at another club. He’s a very versatile attacking player and can play at the front of the midfield or in the pocket, behind a main striker.
Piazon has made an unbelievable start to life in the Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem, a club that Chelsea share a very unique partnership agreement with.
He’s bagged five goals and two assists from eight league games so far and is probably a little unlucky there is so much competition in the Chelsea midfield at the moment, as he could certainly have played more first team games for the Blues than he has done.
The point is that both players should be confident and inspired that they will get a chance next season if they stay focused and work hard, safe in the knowledge another player is unlikely to arrive that will make their chance of getting regular first team football even more difficult.
Can you see Marin or Piazon getting a chance next season?
