The father of Rangers forward Nikica Jelavic has admitted that his son favours a move to Liverpool in the January transfer window, Sky
Liverpool are looking for a striker who can score them goals and Jelavic fits the bill perfectly, having notched 17 goals last season in the SPL. The Croatian is on the radar of a whole host of sides and Championship side Leicester have seen a bid of £6.5m rejected by the Scottish champions. A bid of £9m from an unknown club has also been dismissed and Liverpool would have to pay £10m to sign the striker. The 26 year old is happy to stay at Ibrox, but if the opportunity arises to move to English football, Jelavic will happily take the chance.
Championship side West Ham have enquired about Jelavic’s ability, but the Croatian’s father insists that his son would prefer to move to Anfield. Several clubs are in the running and Rangers boss Ally McCoist faces a difficult task to keep the Croatian at the club.
Phillip Jelavic said: ‘We know about the interest of West Ham and QPR. But Nikica has five or six clubs that are interested, including that of the great Liverpool. As for West Ham and QPR, Nikica is more ambitious than that. It’s most likely that he’ll sign for Liverpool. But there are a few days until the end of the window, so we’ll see.’
