Liverpool continue shock £10m playmaker pursuit - prepare summer bid

Published Add your comment

Liverpool continue to be linked with a shock summer swoop for Spurs midfielder Niko Kranjcar.

The Croatian international has hit some fine form in the Barclays Premier League of late, and Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli is a known admirer of the player.

Kenny Dalglish is also thought to be keen on the playmaker, who would bolster the attacking midfield ranks at Anfield and could become an integral part of the side behind Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll at Liverpool.

The Reds were heavily linked with a £10 million move in January, and faced reported competition from Werder Bremen and Hamburg for the signature.

However, Spurs kept hold of the 26-year-old, and Kranjcar has re-paid the club's faith with a couple of league goals followed by an impressive cameo performance in the Champions League win against AC Milan. reports that Liverpool are again interested in bringing the player to Merseyside, and it's thought that the north London outfit would be willing to listen to offers in the region of £10 million.

Liverpool owners NESV proved that they are willing to back the club financially in January, spending over £55 million on striker additions at the club.


Dalglish has hinted that additional signing will be made to bolster the Anfield ranks, and Kranjcar appears to be one of the top Liverpool targets. It remains unclear if Redknapp will be interested in selling to a league rival.
