AC Milan may be able to sign one of their main attacking targets for a cut-price fee this year due to a clause in his contract, a report claims.
Ralf Rangnick is set to arrive as Milan’s new head coach and head of recruitment this summer as we confirmed earlier today, with a number of players expected to arrive in yet another overhaul.
Gianluca Di Marzio reported on Monday night that Rangnick has informed Milan that he wants Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica to help reinforce the club’s attacking options.
Rashica has exploded especially this season, collecting 31 appearances with Bremen and amassing 10 goals between the Bundesliga and the German Cup.
MilanNews then confirmed that Milan are indeed interested in signing the 23-year-old Kosovo international as they look for options to reinforce the left wing, but that rB Leipzig – the team Rangnick used to coach – are on pole position.
According to the latest from Calciomercato.com, Rashica will be allowed to leave Bremen for just €16million should they be relegated, and they are currently almost certain to go down.
Several German clubs are also keen, but Napoli have been keeping an eye on him for some time with interest. If Werder were to stay up the release clause would stay at €30m.
Milan have taken note for now without starting negotiations, but they are ready to pounce.
