Liverpool are said to be interested in signing Milot Rashica from Werder Bremen during the upcoming summer transfer window, according to Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk on Twitter.
In his 18 appearances for the Bundesliga side this season, Rashica has scored impressive seven goals and bagged three assists.
The Werder Bremen winger has a release clause of just €38 million reportedly and Falk claims that Liverpool are ready to pay provided the player agrees to the personal terms.

The report also mentions Timo Werner as another potential transfer target alongside Milot Rashica, rather than Liverpool potentially signing one or the other.
Rashica would be an ideal addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad, especially considering his release clause is far from extortionate. The diminutive winger’s pace and versatility would work well for Liverpool, with the Kosovo international capable of thriving on either flank.
I don’t think the Reds’ current options behind Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are strong enough. Even though the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Divock Origi can still produce moments of quality, they aren’t natural wide players with the same attributes as Liverpool’s African duo.
Easing Salah and Mane’s workload could be important moving forward, as is having sufficient cover if one of them gets injured or is on international duty, which is a prospect facing Liverpool next season with the Africa Cup of Nations set to be played in January 2021.
