Rakitic moved to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in 2011 after a successful three-and-a-half year spell with German Bundesliga outfit Schalke, and has since established himself as an important member of the Sevilla first-team.
Having tested cup success with Schalke after helping them win the DFB-Pokal, the midfielder has now set his sights on doing the same with the Andalusian side this term.
"The Copa del Rey is always something very special," he said.
"I won the cup in Germany with Schalke and now I want to win the Spanish cup."
Sevilla had enjoyed a relatively-fine start to the new La Liga season and are currently seventh on the table after picking up 11 points from their opening seven games.
