Eros Grezda is set to end his Rangers nightmare imminently with a move to France his agent has revealed.
Ives Cakarun told the Press Association (via The Daily Record): “We have some opportunities for Eros. Let’s see what happens over the next few days.
“It looks like he will be leaving the club quite soon. There are a few French clubs interested but we must wait and see who he joins.
“He wants to get his future sorted quickly. He wants to get back playing on the big level. It’s a pity he can’t get his chance in Glasgow but everything is OK. Rangers are being correct, we just need to wait and see.”
Steven Gerrard has made it clear in recent times that Grezda is better off looking elsewhere to play regular football, although he did recently admit that the club had turned down loan moves for him (Daily Record).
Grezda may have got an opportunity to impress with Rangers’ Under-21s in their Caramel Wafer Cup tie against Berwick Rangers recently, but it would appear that may have come too late in his efforts to force his way into the first-team set-up.
As per the report, the 24-year-old had already been frozen out of the senior squad as he had been told to train with the reserves but further summer additions will not have helped any chance of a change in fortunes for him.
The arrivals of Greg Stewart, Sheyi Ojo, Jordan Jones and Jake Hastie, coupled with the return of Jamie Murphy from injury, will have pushed him further down the pecking order at Ibrox as well and would have made it extremely difficult for the Albania international winger to add to the 17 appearances he made in his debut campaign for the club, in which he provided just two goals and one assist (Transfermarkt) as he missed a further 20 matches in the treatment room for various knocks.
The 24-year-old also incited the public frustrations of Gerrard as well, as he admitted things did not go to plan for the £2m signing – someone who Nikola Katic and Borna Barisic had previously raved about to the manager as ‘one of the best’ before the winger joined the club.
The Scottish Sun claimed Ligue 1 outfits Brest and Dijon were both interested in signing Grezda last month as they looked to improve their squads, which would back up the quotes made by Cakarun in regards to the possibility of his client playing football in France.
It appears as though it will only be a matter of time before Grezda departs Ibrox this summer as his agent’s comments do not hide the fact that a departure could be imminent.
There will be a sense of disappointment that things have not worked out for him at Rangers; however, the club are unlikely to look back on it with too much regret as Gerrard has already acted swiftly in replacing him with a number of different options.
