​RB Leipzig to replace Werner with Werder Bremen star Rashica

RB Leipzig have already found their replacement for soon to depart striker Timo Werner.

The German attacker is set to sign a contract with Chelsea in the coming days.

The Blues are set to pay his buyout clause, while the player has agreed terms.

Liverpool will not match Chelsea's offer, giving them a clear run at Werner.

As for his replacement, Leipzig are targeting Milot Rashica, per Bleacher Report.

The Werder Bremen star is seen as the ideal attacker to take over Werner's duties.

He has excelled in the Bundesliga already, and has the pace and trickery to offer another dimension to the Leipzig attack.
