Liverpool could bag cut price deal for Rashica - Werder facing relegation

This summer will likely see quite a few ins and outs at Anfield. The Reds are tipped to cash in on some more deadwood and replace them with younger models, whilst there are reinforcements needed in attack and more dynamism needed in midfield. Liverpool could bag their reported target Milot Rashica at a cut price if his side continue their poor form.

Rashica has been one of the few shining lights of Werder Bremen’s season so far.

The Kosovan has bagged seven goals and four assists in his 20 Bundesliga starts for the struggling side.

In the DFB Pokal he has netted three goals in four, a much more impressive return.

The 23-year-old is impressively versatile, he has played primarily on the left wing this season but has also popped up on the right flank, behind the striker and as a striker.

Despite his efforts, Werder Bremen are languishing second from bottom, they are eight points from safety and four points from the relegation playoff spot.

Their chances of survival aren’t looking great given that they have lost their last four games in the league.

Bild have previously claimed that Liverpool are monitoring Milot Rashica with a view to triggering his £31.5m release clause.

However, if Werder find themselves in the Bundesliga 2 next season then they may be forced to let their Kosovan winger go for less than his release clause.

Relegation is an expensive affair in any league, they will likely need to raise funds and cashing in on one of their brightest talents would be an effective way to do so.

This is a familiar trick for Liverpool, previously we have seen The Reds pick up Gini Wijnaldum and Andy Robertson from relegated sides.
