Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Niko Kranjcar is interested in a move to Liverpool, according to the player's father.

The Croatian international is frustrated at being on the periphery at White Hart Lane, although previously claimed he's happy to stay and fight for his place in north London.

However, father Zlatko Kranjcar has hinted that his son would be keen on a potential move, with Liverpool cited as one of the possible destinations should the 26-year-old decide to leave his current club.

“Niko would like to stay in London, but he is also ready to leave England if he could move to Serie A," Kranjcar stated.

"Liverpool is a club which would interest him, but then again, why not Italy?”

Harry Redknapp brought the player to England back in 2006, signing the attacking midfielder for Portsmouth back in 2006 from Hajduk Split.

Three years later, Kranjcar followed his boss to Spurs, but after a promising start to his career with the club opportunities have been hard to come by after the arrival of Rafael Van der Vaart in the summer.

Liverpool, Aston Villa and Newcastle United have all been linked with the player in the past, and although the Reds have not commented on their interest it's understood that manager Roy Hodgson is keen to spend in January.

The former Fulham manager has been promised a transfer war chest in the region of £35 million by new Liverpool owners NESV, and is thought to have targeted 'five or six' players in a bid to revamp the squad at Anfield.

A striker and attacking midfielder are thought to be the main priority as the Merseyside outfit search for a foil for Spanish striker Fernando Torres, If the player's father is to be believed, Liverpool have a real chance should they chase the player in the opening month of 2011.

”If Niko didn’t have ambition, he would stay at Tottenham and vegetate for the next three years. He has a great deal, but one just can’t match money with his ambitions,” Kranjcar Snr finished.
