STEVEN GERRARD is on the verge of a £2million swoop for NK Osijek winger Eros Grezda.

The Albanian international winger could become the Rangers manager’s THIRTEENTH signing since arriving at Ibrox in the summer.

Grezda was in Glasgow last night for talks and has been identified as a replacement for Jamie Murphy after the Scotland international was ruled out for the remainder of the season with cruciate ligament damage.

The Gers already have a business relationship with Osijek having signed left-back Borna Barisic in a £1.5million transfer just days after knocking the Croats out of the Europa League.
Grezda didn’t play in either leg of that second qualifying round tie due to an injury that has sidelined him since the end of last season, but he is now thought to be close to returning to action.

Capped six times, the touchline flyer joined Osijek from NK Lokomotiva a year ago and scored eight goals.

The Govan outfit have explored potential loans for Bournemouth’s Jack Simpson and Joe Worrall, of Nottingham Forest, while Northern Ireland veteran Gareth McAuley has also been considered.
