According to a recent report by Bild, Liverpool are keeping tabs on Milot Rashica’s situation at Werder Bremen ahead of a potential move at the end of this campaign. The same source has also revealed that the German outfit will be forced to let the Kosovo international leave as they are in dire need of generating more funds so that they can improve their financial situation next summer. It is believed that Bremen are demanding around €38m for their prized asset but whether a club will agree to pay such a fee is quite uncertain considering Bremen’s struggles in the Bundesliga of late (via Bild).

Rashica’s Impressive Form Despite Bremen’s Struggles This Season

The 23-year-old has been one shining light in what is turning out to be a difficult campaign for Florian Kohfeldt’s team. He has performed at a high level despite his side’s poor form in league football this season. Rashica has featured in 21 matches for the German outfit this term, scoring ten goals while providing four assists on all fronts. The Kosovan talent has managed to be productive in the final third, and his incredible contributions have given the club some hope in their battle for survival in the Bundesliga. They are currently sitting in the 17th position, with only an inferior goal-difference separating them from safety.

The Vushtrii-born prospect has averaged 3.1 shots, 1.7 key passes and 2.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in the league (stats via whoscored) which goes to show how influential he has been for his club this season. He has also earned 25 senior caps for the Kosovan national team, registering four goals in the process.

Rashica will be one of his nation’s most influential players against North Macedonia in the crucial UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier next month. His performance in that high-profile game might very well dictate where he ends up this summer.

What Will Milot Rashica Add To Liverpool?

Rashica is one of the quickest players in the Bundesliga and can put his pace to good use when trying to beat his marker in the attacking third of the field. He can also make penetrative runs with the ball down the left flank and is also versatile enough to feature as a centre-forward if required. The Kosovan forward generally packs a lot of power with his shots which explains why he is such a lethal presence in front of the opposition goal.

Will Rashica Be The Right Fit For Klopp’s Team?

However, Rashica has no chance of securing regular first-team football if he decides to join Liverpool next season. At the moment, he is nowhere near the level of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino so Jurgen Klopp should instead focus on recruiting a more proven option ahead of the new campaign.

If Rashica is willing to settle for a sporadic role in Klopp’s squad, then it makes sense for the Reds to move in for him as he will be more than a capable back-up for the prolific Liverpool frontline. All in all, the Kosovo international will be a decent fit for Klopp as he will bring a lot of energy and dynamism off the bench. Furthermore, he would serve as a perfect replacement for Adam Lallana, who is set to leave the club at the end of this season.
