Liverpool’s search for a new striker continues and it now looks like we have turned our attention to Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic.

Ranger’s Jelavic has been in fine form for the Scotish club since joining them in 2010. Jelavic has scored 33 goals in 46 appearances for Rangers and this has gotten the attention of Dalglish.

With Suarez facing an 8 match ban and Andy Carroll struggling to get to grips with life at Liverpool, the January transfer window could not have come at a better time for Kenny Dalglish as he now has the opportunity to strengthen our forward line.

Jelavic who is a Croatian international has however said he is happy to stay at Rangers but he is flattered with being linked with a move to Liverpool.

‘Every day it appears a new club wants me and that’s a little ridiculous,’ said Jelavic.

‘I know nothing about any offers. I just want to concentrate on Rangers.

‘I have another two-and-a-half years left of my contract but, if the club decides to sell me, because I know that we are in a difficult financial situation, then fine.

‘Of course I am flattered about Liverpool, but I do not know how much truth there is.

‘Therefore, I don’t pay attention because I do not want to create additional pressure. ‘My job is to play. Liverpool is a great name but, like I say, the question is how much are they really interested?’

It is thought that a fee of £15million may be enough to tempt Rangers to sell the 26-year-old striker.
