Club hope to offload midfielder after collapse in reported Rangers interest

Everton are still looking to offload midfielder Mo Besic after reported Rangers interest in the player never came to fruition.

The Liverpool Echo claimed on deadline day that the Gers were considering a move for the Bosnian firebrand midfielder.

But after the Gers opted to move for South African midfielder Bongani Zungu, any proposed move for Besic collapsed.


Now, the Liverpool Echo are claiming that the Toffees are still looking to get the player off the wage-bill with a domestic English transfer window running until October 16th.

Premier League clubs cannot trade with each other during this period, but topflight sides can buy or loan players from the EFL during this period and vice versa.

Besic has spent periods out on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough over the last two seasons and the Goodison Park club are hoping to move him to the Championship this campaign.

The 28-year-old midfielder now has nine days to secure a move out of Merseyside as his contract enters its final year.

Despite having no future at high-flying Everton, the midfielder is said to still be training with the Goodison Park club’s first team.

Whilst a prospective move for Besic may be off the cards, a controversial journalist is claiming that Rangers are in “advanced talks” over a free-agent midfielder last seen in the Premier League.
