Lovro Majer has reportedly emerged as a target for Leeds United ahead of the January transfer window as the Whites finally look to add an attacking midfielder – but Rangers have also been linked, and Ibrox is surely his best move?
Majer, 22, has been in stunning form for current side Dinamo Zagreb and that has caught the attention of big European sides. His six goals and 10 assists in 47 senior Zagreb outings has impressed many onlooking clubs.
Italian website CalcioMercato claim Leeds, Dortmund, Fiorentina, Sevilla and Valencia have all compiled dossiers on the one-time Croatia international. Sportske Novosti, meanwhile, claimed he would cost about £5.5million in the summer.
Leeds need an attacking midfielder and missed out on Michael Cuisance after he failed a medical. Rodrigo, Tyler Roberts and Pablo Hernandez have all been used in that attacking-midfield role this season.
But Majer needs regular game time to further his development and reach the heights of his much-hyped potential. At Leeds, would he get that? Arguably, he would only act as cover for Marcelo Bielsa’s side going forward.
The Daily Record claimed at the start of the year that Majer was a target for Rangers. A move to Steven Gerrard’s side would promise much more game time, given the Gers are currently impressing in European football – increasing game time.
The Gers could do with an attacking midfielder with Scott Arfield and Joe Aribo providing that current position – but also used as cover out wide. Majer would also fit right at home alongside national teammate Borna Barisic.
A move to Rangers would be much more beneficial given there are more opportunities for game time at Ibrox than there are at Leeds for Majer – something which should be pivotal for the highly-rated Croatian talent.
