Liverpool 6/4 to land Nikica Jelavic

Jelavic has scored 14 goals for Rangers this season

Sky Bet make Liverpool the 6/4 favourites to sign Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic by the end of this January’s transfer window.

The Reds are thought to be looking for a new striker following the eight-game suspension handed out to Luis Suarez and could opt for the Croatian who has impressed since moving to Glasgow from Rapid Vienna 18 months ago.

Ally McCoist denied that there had been any bids made for the player but uncertainty regarding the striker’s future intensified after he was left out of the squad for their recent win over Motherwell.

“There was a rumour knocking about on Wednesday before the Celtic game. That was all it was. I haven't heard anything to confirm or deny that,” said the Rangers boss last week.

Jelavic has scored 14 goals for Rangers this season and 33 since completing his £4 million move from Vienna in the summer of 2010.

Queens Park Rangers and West Brom are each are quoted at odds of 7/2 to sign the 26-year-old this January, with Sunderland Everton each priced at 10/1 in the same market.
