With Werder Bremen and RB Leipzig looking increasingly unlikely to agree a deal for Milot Rashica, the 24-year-old might leave the Bundesliga.

For a long while, Werder Bremen star Milot Rashica didn't appear to be interested in a move outside of the Bundesliga because of his desire to join RB Leipzig, with whom he has reportedly agreed personal terms.

But negotiations between Werder and RB Leipzig have stalled, with the transfer fee for the 24-year-old proving a stumbling block for the two clubs, who no longer look likely to come to an agreement.

Rashica's agent, Altin Lala, recently reiterated that his client 'needs a new challenge', and since a move to Leipzig no longer seems realistic, the 24-year-old would now be open to leaving the Bundesliga after all, according to Deichstube.

The Bremen-based media outlet claims that Aston Villa, Leeds United and Napoli are all interested in Rashica. And unlike RB Leipzig, Aston Villa are understood to be willing to meet Werder's €25 million valuation for the Kosovo international.

Rashica's contract with Werder expires in 2022. He has featured 74 times for the club, netting 24 times and making 14 assists.
