Albion Rrahmani has insisted he will only leave Rapid Bucharest for a move to the top five leagues.

The striker - who has been heavily linked with Rangers - is thought to be a transfer target for a host of clubs this summer.

However, new manager Neil Lennon is keen to keep hold of the 23-year-old forward for the new season.

Now, Rrahmani has addressed the speculation over a transfer exit this summer as he vowed he would not be distracted by rumours and keep his focus on Rapid.

He said:ย "I am here, focused 100 per cent and I will fight for this team until the end. I will fight for the fans, for them to support us unconditionally.

"The new players are very good and we have a strong team now. Mr. Lennon is a very good coach, with a very good game philosophy, which will help us to be better and better."

Rrahmani did, however, admit his ambition to move to a club in the traditional top five leagues in Europe - English Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and La Liga.

The suggestion appears to rule a move to Rangers out of the equation unless viewed as a stepping stone in the quest to move again.

Rrahmani explained:ย "I hope to reach the top five leagues in Europe. If a team offers something interesting for the club, I will talk to Mr (Dan). Sucu (Rapid Bucharest owner), and if the offer is also in the interest of the club, I will make a choice.

"For now I am the Rapid player and I will give 100 per cent for the team."
