Liverpool keen on Werden Bremen winger Milot Rashica
According to German publication Bild (h/t Mirror), Liverpool are interested in Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica. The Kosovan international was thrust into the spotlight last season following his goal against Bayern Munich in the German Cup semi-final.
Primarily a left-winger, Rashica is a versatile attacker who can also play up front as a centre-forward or second striker. This versatility should be an added bonus to the Liverpool attack that is fluid at best. The winger has a low centre of gravity and has a knack of opening up defences with his close control and dribbling skills.
The Kosovan international has enjoyed a fine season in the Bundesliga for Die Werderaner and has scored 10 goals and five assists in 24 appearances in all competitions.
Rashica joined Bremen in 2017 from Eredivisie side Vitesse Arnhem and has gone on to make 64 appearances for the club. He is expected to leave Bremen at the end of this season. The Germans are currently second from bottom in the Bundesliga with relegation a real possibility.
A vacancy in the squad!
The player will be considered as a back-up for Senegalese superstar Sadio Mane. Although the reigning African Player of the Year is a major tour-de-force, the Reds lack dependable backups.
Divock Origi has failed to perform consistently while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been more effective in the middle of the park. With Adam Lallana’s contract expiring and Xherdan Shaqiri linked with a move away, Rashica would be a solid addition.
