Niko Kranjcar on way to Anfield?
Liverpool tickets available from Tixdaq.com
Liverpool could make a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Niko Kranjcar if their pursuit of Charlie Adam proves fruitless.
According to The Daily Mirror, Werder Bremen are interested in the Croatian, but the player himself wants to continue plying his trade in the Premier League.
It is thought that he would like to play for the Reds, who are currently interested in Blackpool midfielder Adam.
However, it has been reported that the situation could very well change if they are unable to land the Seasiders’ skipper, with Spurs outcast Kranjcar lined up as a backup option.
Blackpool have slapped a £12m price-tag on Adam.
With Liverpool now in 7th place in the Premier League, suddenly they look a much better prospect for potential signings.
Charlie Adam certainly wants a move to Merseyside, but £12m appears quite steep for a player who has only half a season’s experience in a top European league.
A move for Niko Kranjcar would be a far cheaper option, for not only does the Tottenham midfielder want to leave White Hart Lane, but his club are actually going to allow him to go.
Having cost around £1.5m when he signed from Portsmouth to Spurs, with the small fee due to the Croatian running down his contract.
Kranjcar would cost more than that now, but is still well within Liverpool’s means.
He is thought to be on the market for around £6m, and is thought to be in line to replace Maxi Rodriguez on the Liverpool left.
Possessing a dangerous long range strike and cultured in possession, could Niko Kranjcar be the answer to Liverpool’s needs?
