Rangers have made a bid to bring Bosnian striker Elvir Koljic to Ibrox, according to his club president.

The 23-year-old forward plays his football at FK Krupa and club chief Drasko Ilic claims that Steven Gerrard’s side are one of the teams interested in signing the player this summer.

As quoted by The Scottish Sun, he said: “We have had offers from four clubs – Glasgow Rangers, Panathanaikos, Red Star in France and Waasland-Beveren. We are waiting for the right price. We will be patient and I am sure we will soon find the right moment.”

He spent the second half of last season on loan at Polish side Lech Poznan, having scored 11 goals for his club before January.

That form was enough to win the player his first caps for Bosnia & Herzegovina, featuring in friendlies against Mexico and the USA at the start of the year.

With five goals in his first three appearances of the new 2018/19 season, he’s clearly a player in form and could prove to be an exciting third option to Alfredo Morelos and Umar Sadiq.

He is rated at £315,000 by Transfermarkt, putting the club well within reach of his signature.

Having been linked with a move for Kyle Lafferty in recent weeks, are Rangers about to look to European football to find the value in their search for a striker?

What do you make of these links to Elvir Koljic? Let us know in the comments below…

  • Dont know anything about this guy if Allan and Gerard rate him fair enough but I hope it’s not a panic buy he costs half as much as hearts want for Lafferty and is younger than him would get more seasons out of him than Lafferty we will have to wait and see
