Liverpool £5m midfielder target makes Anfield contact as Adam deal falters

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a shock move for Spurs midfielder Niko Kranjcar.

The Croatian international was linked with an Anfield switch in the summer, and after Werder Bremen failed to agree a fee for the player Liverpool could move again.

26-year-old Kranjcar has struggled to find first team opportunities at Spurs following the arrival of Rafael Van der Vaart in the summer, with Harry Redknapp admitting the situation is tough on the former Hajduk Split star.

Redknapp first brought the player to England during his time at Portsmouth, with a €5.2 million offer being accepted in August 2006.

Liverpool are in the market for a creative midfielder, with their very public courtship of Charlie Adam taking centre stage in most of the British press over recent weeks.


However, the Reds' inability to agree a fee with Blackpool after an original £4 million offer was rejected means the Anfield outfit have reportedly started looking elsewhere.

Footylatest claims that Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish might be able to bring the player to Merseyside for as little as £5 million, while the Daily Mirror reports that the player's agent has contacted the club.

Keen to stay in England and retain his place in the Croatian national side, Liverpool could provide Kranjcar with the platform to do both in a side that's rising up the Barclays Premier League table.

Liverpool have four days left to make a bid in January.
