Rangers have had a £3.5million bid for Jelavic rejected and Rapid are keen to keep the Croatia international at the club.
“The Scottish league is stronger than the Austrian league and Rangers are a great club,” said Jelavic in the Daily Record.
“But I’ve always been honest and I’ve never hidden my desire to one day play in the English Premier League because it is the best in the world.
“At this moment I remain a Rapid Vienna player and a professional.
“I want to do the very best I can for this club until someone tells me otherwise. That’s all I can say at this time.”
Rapid’s sporting director Alfred Hoertnagl said: “There are still too many points that are open, even from the player’s side.
“I don’t want to make any comment about sums or fees.
“I’m not sure if a deal can go through at all. As long as the transfer window is open these issues and themes will always be on the table.”

The start of the 2017-18 Premier League season is just around the corner and is shaping up to be one of the most competitive yet.
As always it is the so called “big clubs” that have splashed the most cash in the transfer window so far this summer. Manchester United or City? Arsenal or Tottenham? Who are the winners and losers of the transfer window so far?
