Over the weekend, and ahead of Aston Villa’s clash with Leicester City, speculation appeared on the January rumour mill claiming we had made Werder Bremen attacker Milot Rashica a ‘priority target’.
The claims seemed to have been sparked by a reporter from Eurosport France who took to social media to make the claim, and obviously our press picked up the story and although it appears the 23-year-old might have something about him, I think fans who allow themselves to get excited here will simply be setting themselves up for disappointment.
The player himself was recently quoted by outlet Bulinews as saying.
“First of all, I hope that I can keep scoring as many goals as possible to help the team and climb up the table. I also think the fans are happy when I score. And I feel very comfortable in Bremen. There is nothing to worry about at the moment.”
He doesn’t seem eager for a move, and that was backed up by his agent, Altin Lala, who told Kicker.
“A winter transfer isn’t and will not be an issue.”
With talk of a £30million fee being required, we have more pressing areas of the pitch to address even if the Kosovan international has scored eight (three assists) in 12 games so far in 2019/20.
The only bit that seems to make this potentially plausible is, four goals and six appearances have seen him occupy the forward left position and he has played in the striker position as well – his versatility also sees him feature across all areas of midfielder – he just doesn’t sound like the true centre-forward we should be looking for next month.
Given His Goal Return, Would Rashica Be Worth A Gamble?
Not At That Price
Could Be A Good Option
