European media: Rangers make move on Dynamo Zagreb hitman

According to Bosnian newspaper Slobodna Bosna, Rangers are close to sealing a deal for Dynamo Zagreb’s Bosnian international forward Armin Hodzic.

The 23-year old striker is familiar to Rangers manager Steven Gerrard having spent 24 months at Liverpool in 2012, albeit most of that time was spent away on loan at his previous team Željezničar in his homeland, where he did pretty well amassing 14 goals in 28 appearances – a cool one in two record.

Unfortunately his record in Croatia is not as impressive, with just 6 in 24 and an assist, but if the claims by said paper are true, Gerrard clearly sees something in his former team mate.

The report (slightly tongue in cheek) read:

"And according to the latest, after a famous club struggled against Osijek in the 2nd leg of the Europa League, the legendary Steven Gerrard is doing everything to bring our national team to his club. Allegedly, Hodzic will sign a contract with the Scottish club by the end of next week. Armin Hodzic moved to Dinamo Zagreb in 2014 from Sarajevo's Željezničar."

Whether this news suggests the move for Kyle Lafferty iss over we’re not entirely sure, but Steven Gerrard does seem quite fixated on Croatian-based players. No bad thing, frankly!
