Rangers could rival the likes of Inter Milan in their reported hunt for Bosnian youth international goalkeeper Vladan Kovacevic.
Herald and Times Sport are reporting that Rangers are keeping tabs on the Rakow stopper, who is currently impressing in the Polish Estraklasa.
They claim that Rangers are eyeing the 24-year-old stopper after an impressive season in Poland, where Vladan Kovacevic kept 16 clean sheets across the country’s top flight and the Europa Conference League.
Capped seven times for the Bosnia U21s, big things are expected of the stopper and he has been recently profiled by the likes of Twitter player analyst Patrick Caskie, who has given the player his seal of approval.
In fact Caskie went to so far as to describe Vladan Kovacevic as his “carte blanche” Allan McGregor replacement, the veteran stopper’s future at Ibrox still uncertain.

The links also come as Kovacevic was named the Polish Estralaska’s Goalkeeper of the Year, a testament to an impressive season for Rakow.
Interestingly, whilst the Herald seem insistent Rangers are considering a move for the stopper the Scottish Sun are claiming the reports are wide of the mark.
They claim Rangers aren’t in the running for the goalkeeper and that the suggestion otherwise is patently not true.
Rangers aren’t the only side who’ve been mentioned alongside Vladan Kovacevic either with Inter Milan another side previously mooted.
Inter Live claimed back in December last year that the Milanese side were considering a move for the stopper but any reports have gone cold.
We’ll have to see what unfolds over the next few weeks in this regard as fans await Allan McGregor’s retirement decision.
But whilst links to ex-Sarajevo stopper Vladan Kovacevic are nice, one current Rangers star has his eyes on the number one jersey.
