Rangers are being linked with midfielder Muhamed Besic, who is currently on the fringes at Premier League club Everton.
According to Bosnian publication Sportske, the 28-year-old could leave Goodison Park before the window shuts as he doesn’t feature in the plans of Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti.
It is claimed that Rangers are eyeing a possible swoop to bring him to Ibrox, as they look to bolster their options in the centre of the park.
The report mentions that any move is likely to be a loan deal.
Despite having some horrid luck with injuries in his career, Besic has got back to playing some regular football in the last couple of years and that has been during spells out on loan.
The Bosnia international made 56 appearances for Championship club Middlesbrough during a successful spell with them between 2018 and 2019, plus he spent the first half of last season at Sheffield United.
He’s a no-nonsense defensive midfielder that is renowned for his aggressive tackling, but he’s also composed in possession and a great passer.
Besic, who earns £30,000-a-week (Spotrac), is exactly the type of signing late in the transfer window that would be a positive one for Rangers.
Steven Gerrard’s side could do with an extra body in the midfield and the Everton enforcer would be a brilliant understudy to Ryan Jack.
Besic is yet to be involved in a single match day squad at the start of this season for Everton and an exit seems inevitable, so Rangers should move quickly to try secure a loan deal.
