Nottingham Forest are having trouble getting rid of one of their outcasts this summer.

Lica has been entirely ineffective at Forest. He played just seven times last season following his move from Porto. The 28-year-old, who has one cap for the Portugal national team, was eventually sent out on loan to his former club Estoril in January.

 

They want him permanently but are struggling to finance his wages for any deal to go ahead.

He is contracted to Forest until next summer and seeing as he is in now way in Mark Warburton’s plans, Forest will be keen to get rid of him.

So should Warburton use his old Rangers connection, and the Portuguese flavour now at Ibrox, to send Lica to Glasgow?

Rangers are now managed by Portuguese coach Pedro Caixinha. He has already pulled in some Portuguese players to the squad already and Lica would certainly have a chance of performing well in Scottish football.

Warburton did not leave Rangers on good terms, but not all bridges will be burned and a dialogue over this particular deal is surely not beyond the realms of possibility.

Forest will not want much and Rangers might jump at the chance of a potential bargain for a Portuguese international.

Ibrox might be the perfect solution to Warburton, Forest and Lica’s issues this summer.
