RB Leipzig are currently the favorites to sign Werder Breman winger Milot Rashica but there are new suitors, including AC Milan. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, former Leipzig Sporting Director Ralf Rangnick is looking to wedge himself into the process and steal the player from the East German club.
Rashica has quickly become a hot commodity after three strong years in the Bundesliga where he has scored 24 goals in 72 games. The past two seasons has seen the Kosovar player's minutes expand as he played in 20 plus games for Breman both this season and last.
The rumored fee will be upwards of 38 million Euros. However, Breman is embattled in a relegation fight and should they lose the playoff in the near future that fee would drop to 15 million. Both Leipzig and Milan will be keeping a close eye on the result before making a commitment.
Leipzig is currently in the process of rebuilding their offense with the departure of Timo Werner and mystery still hanging over Patrik Schick's status. Last season the team brought in Adamola Lookman, Amadou Haidara, Christoph Nkunku and Dani Olmo. Bringing in Rashica would continue the move towards game-ready players in their mid-20's.
