Aston Villa have long been linked with Kosovan international and Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica and as if by magic, that speculation has returned this week following a claim from Supersport Kosova reporter Arlind Sadiku.

Having been linked with the 24-year-old ahead of the January window where he was apparently a ‘priority target’, and then linked a second time during the Covid pause in the calendar, Sadiku took to social media this week to claim that he expected him to arrive at Villa ‘next week’.

“Milot Rashica will leave Werder Bremen by the end of next week at the latest. A few weeks ago he had reached a personal agreement with Leipzig but Werder Bremen is not happy with the offer. Monaco, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton have made official requests for Rashica services. According to my sources, Aston Villa’s offer is the most convenient for Werder and it is very likely that Rashica will be transferred to the Premier League next week.”

Would You Spend £30m On Rashica?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With 11 goals and 8 assists in 32 Bundesliga appearances last season, Rashica’s stock continues to rise in the game but despite the Leipzig link seeming unlikely, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Monaco are also name-checked as having an interest in him but if Sadiku can be believed here, he’s also stated that we are favourites and already in ‘advanced talks’ with the club and player.

During the last round of speculation, it was suggested £30million would get a deal done but I’d be surprised if we spent that much on potential talent – however, he’s a left sided attacker who can play down the middle as well, so after last season, this one might have legs.

Manchester United beat us to the inaugural Prem title in 1992/93, but what was the score when we travelled to Old Trafford?

  • If Rashica’s signature is secured, it will be something of a coup because I thought he might just be beyond our grasp, given his pedigree and the likely demand for his services.

    Despite plenty of news banners, it would seem likely that Grealish will stay, but that then poses a question of how Smith will line the side up. With the captain coming in off the left more often than not, will he move position or will Rashica play right? Historically, the Kosovan has played down the right, so does the manager see the pair flanking a new front man? Will that influence any thoughts surrounding Buendia and/or Cantwell for instance?

    The Press fervour around Watkins seems to be subsiding, now Leicester have come into the reckoning. I just wonder if Brentford might being playing hard ball just a little too heavily. Similarly, I am feeling Benrahma’s pursuit could be easing as Rashica’s increases. It’s all a swirl of stories, fake news, exaggeration, lies and intrigue, yet I still wade though it!

    I still fancy 2, maybe 3 forward players will come in and probably at least another. Cash’s versatility and development has impressed me. Maybe, the one Brentford boy just might end up arriving could be Henry. Who knows?

    Oh, and then there’s keeper cover…….,🤭

    • Don’t know a lot about Rashica – one of JG’s mates has already twittered ‘welcome’ tonight, but if he’s right sided attack, that has to end Buendia speculation as he’s largely right sided as well.

      Does leave Cantwell open though I guess. And guessing is all we can do lol
