Had Werder been relegated, Rashica’s release clause would have dropped to €15m. However, it now remains at €35m.
Leipzig are working on a budget of €25m and want to strengthen six positions, making a deal for Rashica improbable.
However, Werder are desperate for money and have been planning to sell Rashica in the summer.
As a result, the Bremen club could yet reduce their asking price.
Another option is AC Milan, with incoming manager Ralf Rangnick a big fan of Rashica.
Milan have Rashica on a list of potential signings, but Kicker states that only Leipzig have come forward so far.
Kosovo international Rashica had a good season, scoring 11 and assisting five goals for Werder.
