Rangers are reportedly plotting a move for Croatia international and NK Osijek striker Mirko Maric.

The Daily Record is reporting that Rangers want the striker to potentially replace Alfredo Morelos in the summer.

The Colombian is reportedly attracting interest from the likes of Borussia Dortmund [Sky Sports] and Eintracht Frankfurt [Daily Express].

Mirko Maric is the Croatian First League’s top scorer with 16 goals and has already earned two caps for Croatia. At 23 years old, now may well be the time for the striker to move on to a bigger club.

 

The former Videton player and Bosnia & Herzegovinian youth striker is rated at £1.5m on Transfermarkt but the Record report claims Rangers will have to cough up £3m for the player.

Should the Ibrox club move for Maric he would be the third signing from Osijek in twelve months.

However, it’s not as if the other two signings have lived up to their price tags in Glasgow.

A combined total of £4m was spent on Borna Barisic and Eros Grezda. Reports are now suggesting their time in Glasgow could be up come the end of the season [originally The Herald].

Is it wise to move back into a market and to a club where we’ve yet to see real value?

Or should we refuse to be put off by the disappointing impact of Barisic and Grezda?
