DeichStube: Milot Rashica doesn’t want to join Aston Villa

Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica is not keen on the idea of joining Aston Villa, DeichStube reports.

Villa are willing to dig deep and commit a big fee to signing Rashica, 24, who is also a target of RB Leipzig.

The well-informed Kosovan journalist Arlind Sadiku reported on Wednesday that Villa had made the best offer for Rashica.

However, it is reported that Villa’s interest is not mutual, with Rashica put off by their standing in the Premier League.

Rashica is interested in moving to England, even though his preference is still to join Leipzig.

Werder’s €25m asking price remains too high for the Champions League semi-finalists, who want a discount.

The Kosovo international hopes to join a team with whom he can shine on the European stage.

With two years left on his contract, Werder would seem to be under no pressure to sell Rashica.

But the Bremen club need money, particularly as they are obligated to buy Omer Toprak and Leonardo Bittencourt after their loan spells.

Chong arrives from Man Utd

Meanwhile, Werder have welcomed Manchester United youngster Tahith Chong.

The Bundesliga club are signing Chong on a season-long loan deal and are currently sorting out the final details.

Sporting director Frank Baumann said the 20-year-old is not a replacement for Rashica.

“I can imagine the two of them playing on the pitch together,” Baumann said.
