Werder Bremen star Milot Rashica, who has been linked with Liverpool and Aston Villa over the last few years, is set to be available for a low price of just €15 million.


The Kosovo international had a staggering release clause of around €38 million before the German side's relegation to 2. Bundesliga, according to prominent Bundesliga journalist Christian Falk, but things have changed since then.


Kicker, as cited by Goal reporter Ronan Murphy, are claiming that Rashica could be available for just €15 million this summer.


Werder Bremen got relegated to the second-tier last weekend after a poor run of form at the end of the season saw them finish in 17th, ending their long stay in the Bundesliga.


Rashica did not have the best season in terms of stats, with him scoring just three goals and providing five assists over the course of the whole season, with him suffering plenty of knee and hamstring injuries throughout the whole campaign.


While it is unclear whether Liverpool are still interested in the 24-year-old, Aston Villa still have him on their list of transfers for the summer, with Football Insider stating that he "is on the club's shortlist of potential wide forward signings going into the next transfer window".


Liverpool might still see Rashica as a good signing, but with Takumi Minamino returning to the club and with Xherdan Shaqiri set to stay at Merseyside, Rashica will find it hard to get regular playing-time even from off the bench to prove his worth, especially with Diogo Jota starring for the Reds.


Meanwhile, he would be an excellent signing for Aston Villa, who would support Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins, taking some of the goalscoring load off of them, with him playing anywhere right behind the striker, and even as a striker himself, the type of versatility that Dean Smith would love to have in his side.
