Niko Kranjcar’s father has revealed his son would relish a move to Liverpool if it materialised, despite Niko insisting he is happy to remain at Tottenham.

Niko, though, did admit he would consider quitting the North London club if he remains a peripheral player at the club.

Kranjcar has recently been linked with Liverpool, Aston Villa and Newcastle since being a second choice for Harry Redknapp so far this season.

With Liverpool set to make big moves in the January transfer window, Kranjcar has been mooted as one of Roy Hodgson’s main targets with his experience of Premier League football.

And his father Zlatko, who currently coaches the Montenegro national side, has admitted Niko’s ambition could see him force through a move to Anfield or Serie A.

”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,” he said.

“Niko would like to stay in London, but he is also ready to leave England if he could move to Serie A. Liverpool is a club which would interest him, but then again, why not Italy?”

However, Niko has insisted he is happy to stay with Spurs until he becomes a ‘reserve’ player, saying: “I feel great at Tottenham, so if I could play regularly for my team, then my first option would be to stay at White Hart Lane.

“But if I don’t play much, then I will have to look for other solutions. Nobody wants to be a reserve and that goes for me too.

“I enjoy playing football, so that is the first thing on the agenda. If there is not enough space for me at Tottenham, then I will have to think about the next step in my career.

“I repeat - I feel great here, but if I don’t play every game, I feel a little bit empty.”
