Rangers fans have reacted after Balkan football journalist Filip Mishov, linked the club with Dinamo Zagreb no.10, Lovro Majer.
Mishov says that the Gers are keen on both Majer and Osijek striker Mirko Maric, who already has 14 goals for the season.
However, as both players are highly rated and under contract, neither will come cheap, with the journalist suggesting that it would take a combined fee of around £12 million to take them both to Ibrox.
to sign him now & the same applies for Majer who is waiting on #DinamoZagreb & #Olmo. As of now, nothing is imminent & if #Rangers are willing to sign them both it would take around £12 millions combined.
As I said a year ago, #Rangers are extensively scouting throughout…

Despite Maric’s prolific goalscoring, it seems to be Majer who Bears are getting most excited about.
He started his career with NK Lokomotiva and moved to Dinamo Zagreb in 2018, since suffering from injury and a relative lack of game time. However, while he’s yet to net in 16 appearances in all competitions this season, he continues to be highly thought of.
The attacking midfielder will be well known to Gers centre-back Nikola Katic, as the two were teammates during the U21 European Championships in the summer. In fact, Filip Mishov has ventured to assert that both Majer and Maric are more rounded players than either Katic or Borna Barisic were when they came to Rangers.
Dado Pršo – what a fantastic striker, I loved him as a player!

Given the popularity of both Katic and Barisic amongst the Ibrox faithful, it seems the thought of bringing in another talented Croatian, is extremely appealing.
Here’s a selection of reactions to the link from Twitter:
If we could get that Lovro Majer as our only January signing, I’d be delighted
Would take Mirko Maric too tho, but if we keep all our first team players and sign one or two of them we’ll be sorted for the rest of the season
Two really good players but would cost £10m+ for both

Rangers got Katic and Barisic from Croatia both of whom are absolutely brilliant. Anything Rangers might’ve lost on Grezda will be peanuts compared to the future profit that will be made on Katic and Barisic. Croatia has many quality players and Majer is another one.

Majer would be a fantastic signing,if kamara moved on at the fees banded about we could pay £6 million and treble it in 2-3 years time.

Another rumour saying Majer has now told Zagreb he wants to join Rangers? pic.twitter.com/mD5TdYRDNw
