RB Leipzig are actively looking for a replacement for Timo Werner after the German forward completed his transfer to Chelsea for next season. The Germans have made a shortlist of potential signings and Werder Bremen forward Milot Rashica tops their list, claim reports from Germany.
The 23-year-old Kosovo forward is one of Werder’s star performers but could be on his way towards the exit if Bremen relegates from the Bundesliga. The club has finished in 16th place and will have to play a play-off to avoid relegation to the 2.Bundesliga. It is believed Werder value the left forward at €15m.
Werder coach Frank Baumann already hinted at a possible transfer for Rashica: “It’s no secret that Milot has aroused interest of other clubs. After all, there has been a lot of speculation in the last few days. If a club has a concrete interest in him, we’ll get together and find a solution”, said Baumann.
