RB Leipzig have cooled their interest in signing Milot Rashica from Werder Bremen, according to Bild.


Apparently, 'Die Roten Bullen' have come to accept that it will not be possible to sign the Kosovo international, who has also been linked with Aston Villa and Wolverhampton.

Rashica is said to be keen on a move to Leipzig, but the two clubs have struggled to agree a fee. According to reports, RB Leipzig have offered €15 million plus €3 million in bonuses, but Werder want at least €20 million upfront plus an additional amount in add-ons.

"If we have set a limit for what we are willing to pay in transfer fee and wages, we will stick to it," RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff recently emphasized.

At this point, Rashica is no longer Leipzig's top transfer target, as per Bild, who claims their main focus is turning Angelino's loan from Manchester City into a permanent deal.

Having seemingly missed out on Rashica and AS Roma's Patrik Schick, the Bundesliga side still want a striker and are reportedly showing interest in Alexander Sørloth (Trabzonspor, on loan from Crystal Palace) and Darwin Nunez (Almeria).
