Report: Aston Villa and West Ham two of four Premier League teams chasing Milot Rashica

The Kosovo star is also wanted by Wolverhampton Wanderers and Brighton.

Several Premier League teams are set to swarm on Werder Bremen playmaker Milot Rashica this summer, according to Sky Sports. 

Aston Villa, Brighton, West Ham, and Wolves are all said to be keen on the Kosovo international. 

Aston Villa’s interest has been reported before, with The Mirror suggesting that Dean Smith’s side were looking into a £35 million deal for the player. 

Wolves and West Ham have also been linked before by German source Die Spiegel whilst Brighton’s interest appears relatively new.

Aston Villa will no doubt need to stay in the Premier League to get a deal done whilst Rashica would fit the bill perfectly for the sort of signing David Moyes appears to want at West Ham. Wolves, meanwhile, are consistently looking to improve their team into regular European contenders. 


All four teams interested will undoubtedly be hoping for Werder Bremen to be relegated from the Bundesliga, which restarts this weekend. 

The club are currently second from bottom and fairly adrift of Mainz in 15th, the final definitive safe spot in the division. Rashica will be available for a release clause of just €18 million (£16m), as reported by Bild, should the struggling side end up being relegated from the Bundesliga. 

Considering his impressive statistics of 10 goals and five assists in 24 games for the struggling side this season, Aston Villa, West Ham, Wolves, and Brighton are right to be keeping tabs on a potential bargain of the summer option.
