Liverpool’s scouting team is rumoured to be keeping tabs on Werder Bremen’s young forward Milot Raschica.
As reported in the Mirror, Jürgen Klopp, Michael Edwards and co are interested in bringing the 23-year Kosovo international to Anfield.
Rashica is a right-footed attacker who plays on the left side of a front three. He can also operate centrally if needed. Judging by this information, he would be an ideal backup option for Liverpool’s Sadio Mané.
Now in his third season at Werder Bremen, Rashica has started 44 league games for the German club, scoring 17 goals and providing 9 assists. He is known for his excellent close control and dribbling skills while cutting in from the left-hand side.
The article states that Rashica could be got for around £33 million ‘but in the likely scenario that Bremen are relegated, the club may have to settle for a lower fee’. Werder Bremen were second-from-bottom of the Bundesliga when the season was halted due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. They were 8 points from safety with one game in hand.
It’s unclear exactly how or when nations will restart the 2019/20 football season or when the next transfer window will be. However, it’s worth taking note of the name Milot Rashica as The Reds could be hunting him whenever any level of normalcy returns to the world.
