And according to Fussball Transfers, a deal for the 23-year-old Kosovan is ‘speeding up’ with Werner’s exit imminent.
Leipzig are keen to sign Rashica, but there is one complication – which release clause will be in effect.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side would have to pay Rashica’s €38m release clause in normal circumstances.
Knowing Leipzig will have received €50m or more for Werner, Bremen would want the full clause or somewhere close.
However, if Werder are relegated a much cheaper €15m release clause replaces the higher one.
Werder are currently in the relegation zone, but with a number of games still to play, nothing is certain.
As a result, third-place RB Leipzig may have no choice but to wait until the season is over to make their move for Rashica.
