Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on Werder Bremen attacker Milot Rashica as well as RB Leipzig star Timo Werner, who has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield.
According to Christian Falk of BILD, the Premier League leaders are scouting the Kosovar international after an impressive season with Bremen despite their place in the Bundesliga table, with Rashica bagging 10 goals and four assists in all competitions for the northwest German club who sit five points off from safety in the league standings.
With a release clause of €38m (£31.6m), Rashica is likely to be a target for many European clubs in the summer transfer window should Bremen be relegated to the 2. Bundesliga, and as positional stats from Transfermarkt show, the 23-year-old forward’s versatility in the attack could make him an ideal signing for Jurgen Klopp.
Do Liverpool need attacking signings in the summer?
Once compared to Alexis Sanchez by Bundesliga.com, another player Liverpool were reportedly interested in during the peak of his powers in 2014 before Arsenal beat the Reds to him, Rashica has been described as ‘a one-man attacking force’ with his stocky build and low centre of gravity making the Kosovo international a rare breed of attacker that could flourish in the Premier League as well as under Klopp.
And with Bremen’s precarious position in the league table, there is no doubt that Liverpool will be able to pull off a deal for the former Vitesse star, who could be allowed to leave for a fee cheaper than his release clause should the Bundesliga side take the plunge to the second division.
Rashica has been one of the few shining lights for Bremen this season, and his skill set could be well used at Liverpool should the Reds opt to make a move for the 23-year-old attacker who could develop into a star under Klopp under the Anfield floodlights.
