Rangers are interested in signing Dinamo Zagreb defender Bostjan Cesar.
The highly-rated stopper has emerged as a possible alternative if Monaco's Julien Rodriguez is not snapped up by the SPL champions.
Reports north of the border claim the Ibrox outfit are bidding to clinch the capture of the Monaco man on Thursday but there are doubts that the transfer can be sealed before the first UEFA Champions League deadline.
Cesar scored the winning goal for Slovenia in their recent World Cup qualifier with Italy.
It is understood that The Gers noted his ability in a pre-season friendly game in Canada between the two clubs.
"After the game, I talked with people from the club," revealed the 23-year-old.
"They told me that they have already watched me before and that they think I'm a very interesting player.
"But that's all.
"I don't know if my club has received any formal offer from The Gers but I would sure be happy to play for such a big club."
Some years ago, there was talk of Cesar joining Milan or Juventus with Werder Bremen and Liverpool also mentioned as possible suitors.
