Kicker: RB Leipzig may be priced out of Rashica deal

RB Leipzig may have to scrap plans to sign Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica this summer, Kicker reports.

Rashica, 24, is a target for Die Roten Bullen but Werder’s Bundesliga survival has impacted his release clause.

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.
