Rangers are reportedly interested in making another dive into the Croatian transfer market with Lovro Majer and Mirko Maric the latest names linked with moves to the Ibrox club according to The Daily Record.
Majer of Dinamo Zagreb and Maric of Osijek are both highly regarded by their clubs and wouldn’t come cheap with The Scotsman reporting that they could cost up to a combined £12m given that they are on long-term contracts with their clubs.
Rangers have been linked with Maric before and the striker has fired 16 goals and 5 assists in 23 appearances for Osijek, the club that Eros Grezda recently returned to and that Borna Barisic captained in last seasons clash with the Gers in the Europa League. The Scotsman believes that Maric was discussed as part of the deal that saw Grezda make the move back to his old club.
Majer is a Croatian under-21 international and is an attacking midfielder capable of playing either centrally or in support of a striker, ironically, Osijek are also credited with an interest in the youngster.
Old Firm rivals, Celtic, had been rumoured to be making a move for Majer but nothing materialised and with two Croatians already on the books, Rangers would be confident of persuading him to make the move to Scotland should they be able to agree a price with his parent club.

Gerrard has said that there will be limited movement into Ibrox in this transfer window with a few players expected to leave the bloated squad, fans of the Light Blues will be hoping that if there are any arrivals that they will be of the quality of Majer and Maric, change days from the likes of Francisco Sandaza and Kevin Kyle.
