The Staggies, along with St Mirren, are believed to be on the hunt for the Cypriot international’s signature with English League One outfit Morecambe, along with clubs in Cyprus and Greece also showing interest.

The 27-year-old, who previously played for Hamilton Academical, is in the final six months of his contract at Easter Road.

Ross County manager Malky Mackay previously said that he would be looking to bring in new personnel during the transfer window, but only if they matched the same quality or improved what he had in the squad.

Speaking previously, Mackay said: “We might try to see if we can strengthen a couple of positions, if we are going to add we need to add with quality that is just as good if not better than we’ve got.

“There is no point bringing in squad fillers.”

The reports of interest in Gogic come after Harry Clarke left Ross County after being recalled by Arsenal.

It is believed he could be sent on loan to Hibernian with a deal close to being agreed with the Edinburgh outfit.

Ross County have also sent defender Coll Donaldson out on loan to Championship strugglers Dunfermline Athletic.

The 26-year-old, who joined Ross County from Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 2020, has struggled for game time since Mackay was appointed manager at the Global Energy Stadium.

Donaldson joins up with his former manager at Ross County John Hughes at East End Park, who are facing a fight against relegation from the Championship. They are currently in ninth place and only one point ahead of Greenock Morton who are bottom of the table.
