Reported Liverpool target, Milot Rashica, is on his way out of Werder Bremen, according to their sporting director, Frank Baumann.
Speaking to Bundesliga News, Baumann has confirmed that Rashica will leave this summer. The speedy attacker has scored 11 times this season, while he’s also laid on a further eight goals for his teammates.
That form, then, has seen a number of clubs register an interest in the Bremen star. Liverpool are among them, with Bild reporting back in February that Jurgen Klopp was keeping a close eye on Rashica’s form.
And Baumann has confirmed that discussions are already underway with a club over the transfer of the 23-year-old.
“There is movement and discussions with a club, but other clubs are also interested in him. We have to assume that he won’t be with us next season. But we don’t need to sell below value.”
However, the Reds face competition if they do want to land Rashica. The same report claims the likes of RB Leipzig and AC Milan are also watching the Kosovo star.

And that seems to be the big question on everyone’s lips when it comes to Liverpool this summer.
They do need to add players if they wish to continue to dominate but after pulling out of a deal for Timo Werner and Jurgen Klopp declaring himself happy with the squad, it remains to be seen if the Reds will make moves.
They’ll also need to find a decent chunk of change to land Rashica, too. Bild reported that the winger has a £31.5m release-clause that will allow him to move abroad if he wants.
There is no way, then, that Bremen are letting him go for any less than that.
