According to a report in The Sun this morning, Liverpool aimed a speculative offer for Rangers hitman Nikica Jelavic as the transfer deadline approached on Wednesday night.
Reds manager Kenny Dalglish allegedly aimed a £9 million offer at the Glasgow side after seeing David Ngog, Raul Meireles and Joe Cole leave Merseyside on various deals.
Though Craig Bellamy was brought in on a free from Manchester City, Dalglish chanced his arm with an approach to take Jelavic to Anfield on loan, before making a more realistic multi-million attempt as the clock ticked down.
Despite the fact that Liverpool’s frontline is brimming with talent, and Luis Suarez looks to be in fantastic form to start the new season, Jelavic would have been a great addition.
Since arriving from Rapid Vienna in 2010, he has scored 22 goals in 36 appearances across all competitions, helping Rangers to the Scottish Premier League title.
A 12-cap Croatian international to boot, there is no doubt that Jelavic could be a force at Premier League level and Dalglish's interest may indicate that a January swoop could be in the offing.
