Liverpool have revealed that a bid of £5 million was turned down for Rangers striker Nikica Jelavic, as the transfer period closed last night, according to The Sun.

Jelavic has starred for Rangers since the 26-year-old moved to the Scottish outfit last summer, scoring 18 goals in 28 appearances. As a result, he has received attention from numerous European clubs.


Liverpool in particular were connected to the star, and particularly after Kenny Dalglish was resigned to losing David Ngog, Raul Meireles and Joe Cole, the manager was on the lookout for more support up front.

After Liverpool made a bid in the vicinity of £5 million for Jelavic, Leicester reportedly outbit them with a £6.5 million offer, and an ‘unnamed club’ put in a £9 million bid just hours before the end of the window.

Dalglish still got a forward for the Liverpool line up, signing up Craig Bellamy during the day. Bellamy returns to Merseyside after spending a year at the club in 2006-07.
