Fresh reports have emerged linking Tottenham playmaker Niko Kranjcar with a move to Liverpool.

The 26-year-old as enjoyed a recent resurgence in the Spurs team - scoring the winning goal in each of their last two Barclays Premier League outings - but remains on the fringes on the first XI.

Liverpool have previously been linked with a move for the Croatian midfielder by Metro, and now reports that the Reds will reignite their interest in the summer.

Reportedly valued at around £10 million, Kranjcar will allegedly be targeted by Liverpool when the transfer window reopens in June as they look to bring players with a creative spark to Anfield.


According to, Liverpool have 'earmarked' the former Portsmouth man as a player to enhance their squad and are prepared to meet Tottenham's valuation in their pursuit of attacking reinforcements.

Harry Redknapp is unlikely to stand in Kranjcar's way should Liverpool make an acceptable bid in the closed season, but the Spurs boss maintains that he wants the Croatia international to stay at White Hart Lane.

"I could always stick Niko somewhere else if Gareth was fit because Niko deserves his place in the team," he said.

"He’s a top player. He practises, he spends time after training every day. Every day, he is on the training ground after he finishes doing a half-hour’s [shooting] practice.

"His dad was a top player – his dad is now the manager of Montenegro. He has been brought up with the game. He practises, so it’s not a coincidence he can strike a ball. His technique is great."
