According to a report from SportBild, one of Liverpool’s rumoured summer targets Milot Rashica looks ‘almost certain‘ to depart the Bundesliga this summer – but the Reds have until June 15 to land the player at a cut price €38 million (£33.1 million)

Rashica has scored seven goals and assisted four others in 20 German top flight outings this season, reportedly prompting manager Jurgen Klopp among other interested suitors to stand up and take notice of the midfielder’s exploits.

As well as Liverpool, RB Leipzig appear keen to poach the 23-year-old attacker, potentially as a replacement for star forward Timo Werner as the Reds continue to monitor him amidst the global pandemic.

For £33.1 million? Yes please

Rashica apparently has a number of transfer clauses in his contract should we opt to sign the player – potentially being made available for £33.1 million if current club Werder Bremen stay in the Bundesliga.

If Bremen were to be relegated, that price would drop significantly to €15 million (£13 million) – drawing attention to a would-be bargain if the Reds decide to eventually swoop.

According to outlet Bundesliga, Rashica possesses a similar playing style to that of Man United striker Alexis Sanchez – and his WhoScored statistics seem to certainly outline a degree of quality going forward.

Going by the numbers, only Mohamed Salah has averaged more shots per game than the Kosovan – meanwhile Rashica has completed more dribbles this campaign than any Liverpool player.

Judging by the evidence, Rashica would potentially present himself as a bargain buy, especially when taking into account the relegation clause.

However, as detailed in the SportBild report, Liverpool may be racing against the clock if they want him at a cut price.
