Reported Liverpool, Wolves target to leave as Bremen confirm talks

Milot Rashica

Werder Bremen sporting director Frank Baumann has confirmed their prized asset Milot Rashica will leave the club this summer.

Rashica has enjoyed a strong season for the Bundesliga outfit, scoring 11 and assisting eight goals in the Bundesliga.

Liverpool were one of those, and last week it was suggested that they were interested in signing the wide man.

Southampton have also been credited with an interest, though Wolves look the most likely Premier League suitor.

It is believed Rashica is open to making the move to England. However, reports in Germany state the Kosovan has serious ambitions of playing for one of Europe’s biggest teams later in his career.

Baumann comfirmed that the player would leave this summer and that talks over a transfer had been held.

“There is movement and discussions with a club, but other clubs are also interested in him,” Baumann told Bundesliga News. “We have to assume that he won’t be with us next season. But we don’t need to sell below value.”

Rashica had a €38m exit clause in his contract, though that had to be triggered before June 15.

As such, Bremen could now potentially negotiate a higher price for the 23-year-old.

Rashica has two years left on his deal at the Weser Stadium.

The president of the Kosovan Football Federation says Liverpool are very much in the race to sign Rashica.

However, he also revealed RB Leipzig looked likely to secure a deal.

Speaking in May, Agim Amedi told Syri TV: “There are many requests for him.

“I know that Liverpool in the Premier League want him, but also Leipzig in the Bundesliga. I am sure that he will be advised in the best way to make his decision.”
