Rangers seem intent on offloading players this January more than bringing them in.
The Gers have already sold Serge Atakayi and Eros Grezda, with Andy King ending his loan spell to return to Leicester City.
And if comments from Ross Wilson are to be believed, as per the Scottish Sun, they might not be finished there either.
But that doesn’t rule out the prospect of the Gers making any acquisitions entirely, and the latest report from journalist Filip Mishov suggests that they have a couple of targets in their sights.
Writing on his personal account, the reporter said: “Rangers are interested in signing Lovro Majer (21) & Mirko Marić (24) from Dinamo Zagreb and NK Osijek, but I believe it will be very hard to convince them to sell in the January transfer window and as of now, I don’t think anything is imminent.”

That report feels like a bit of a double-edged sword.
On the one hand, interest in a pair of players like Majer and Maric can only be a good thing. Majer in particular is an exciting prospect who already has league winning experience under his belt at the age of just 21.
The attacking midfielder is a Croatian youth international, and has played alongside Nikola Katic before.
Similarly, Maric is a proven hitman with 16 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions this season.
As per the Daily Record, the Gers have been linked with him before, but a move never materialised.
But as positive as these two signings would be, there are issues.
For one thing. Mishov doesn’t seem overly convinced by the likelihood of it happening, and it’s easy to see why.
With so much of their effort being geared towards it offloading players, it doesn’t make sense for the Gers to then bring in two new faces to bulk their squad back up, especially ones that would likely cost a decent amount of money.
This feels like it’s more likely to happen in the summer than this month.
