Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica is attracting interest from the English Premier League. West Ham and Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the clubs who want to sign the 23-year-old at the end of the season.

The Kosovo international has spent over two years in Germany. He made a €7m move from Vitesse Arnhem to Werder Bremen in 2018. He is one of the most highly rated attacking players in the Bundesliga, thanks to his tally of 23 goals and 11 assists in just 64 games for his club. His form has attracted interest from clubs in the EPL.

Rashica is known to be a long-term target for Borussia Dortmund, who view the Werder Bremen winger as the natural replacement to Jadon Sancho. Sancho is bound to make a return to the Premier League at the end of the season. Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are among the clubs interested in the former Manchester City youngster. According to sources close to the player, he will prefer a move abroad, which gives EPL clubs advantage over a move to Dortmund.

According to a report from Der Spiegel the 23-year-old is also a target for a handful of clubs in the Premier League. Liverpool were linked with Rashica in January, but Der Spiegel now names West Ham, Wolves and Aston Villa among the sides who want to lure the forward away from the Bundesliga.

As part of any deal for Rashica, clubs would have to match his £33 million release clause with Die Werderaner. But the fee could be lowered should the club suffer relegation at the end of the season.

Florian Kohfeldt’s side are currently in the automatic relegation spot and are expected to at least finish 16th, which would force them to play a two-legged playoff match against a side from the Bundesliga 2, which could be Hamburg or Stuttgart.
