Rashica, 24, wants to join RB Leipzig but the €25m being demanded by Werder is too high for them.
Their maximum offer so far has been €15m, well short of what Bremen want.
Leipzig are biding their time, especially since the Kosovan would not be eligible for the restart of the Champions League anyway.
AC Milan were keen on Rashica, but that would have been linked to Ralf Rangnick’s arrival.
Rangnick and Milan have now agreed not to link up so they are out of the running for Rashica.
The new club(s) from Italy wanting Rashica is not named, though it is likely to be one who qualify for Europe.
Rashica registered eight goals and five assists in the Bundesliga this season, a good return considering Werder’s struggles.
