Report: Aston Villa rekindle interest in Werder Bremen's Milot Rashica

Aston Villa are ready to move again for Werder Bremen attacker, Milot Rashica, according to a report from Italian outlet, Calciomercato.

The Villans came close to landing Rashica last summer. However, no deal was ever concluded and Rashica has remained in Germany since then.

But Rashica has been unable to stop Bremen from suffering relegation from the Bundesliga. That relegation means a number of players could now leave the German outfit, including Rashica.

Calciomercato claims that Villa have already made contact about reigniting a deal for Rashica. A £14m fee has been mentioned.

Ranking EVERY Manager At Euro 2020

Rashica managed just the three goals this season for Bremen. He did, however, lay on five goals for his teammates, and did miss chunks of the season with injury.

The Kosovo international’s versatility in forward areas will appeal to Villa and their manager, Dean Smith. Rashica can play on both sides, as well as being a number ten if needed.

TBR’s View: Villa always likely to go for Rashica again

This one seemed to rumble on for much of last summer so it’s little surprise to see Villa reignite their interest in Rashica, especially with Bremen going down.

At one point it looked like Rashica could fetch around £25m. But his value has now tumbled, and Bremen simply might have to cash in.

He’s a good player, too. On his day he can be a real difference make and he has previously been compared to former Arsenal and Manchester United forward, Alexis Sanchez.
