Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni is reportedly in line for a move to Tunisia.

According to Tunisian football website Kawarji, Esperance Sportive de Tunis are in 'advanced talks' to sign Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni.

Mohsni, 27, arrived in British football in 2010, joining Southend United as a centre back, though he did also feature up front for the Shrimpers too.

With 18 goals in 62 games, Mohsni impressed at Roots Hall, and after a loan spell with Ipswich Town, the versatile Tunisian international moved north of the border with Rangers in 2013.

After 11 goals in 34 games for the club last season, Mohsni has been in-and-out of the side this term, playing in 20 games in all competitions.

Mohsni has recently been recalled to the Rangers side by new manager Stuart McCall, but is out of contract at the end of the season, meaning he could leave Ibrox for free at the end of the season.

Now, reports from Tunisian website Kawarji suggest that Esperance Sportive de Tunis are in 'advanced talks' to sign Mohsni having made plans for big summer transfers.

Mohsni has made four appearances for Tunisia despite being born in Paris, and having been named in the Tunisia squad for the recent Africa Cup of Nations, he could now end up playing in Tunisia for ES Tunis next season.
