Liverpool are rumoured to be interested in making a move for Tottenham pair Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar this summer. The Croatian international duo have been earmarked by Anfield’s Director of Football Damien Comolli who previously held the same position at White Hart Lane and now hopes to secure a deal to bring both to Merseyside.
Playmaker Kranjcar has been strongly linked with a move away from Tottenham and the 26 year old is said to be unhappy about his lack of first team opportunities and is said to be a target of Newcastle United and a number of sides in Serie A.
The adaptable attacking midfielder has been targeted by Comolli in order to boost the club’s creativity as well as his ability to score goals. The former Portsmouth man may add more natural width as he appears to do his best work when in a wide role where he has most recently been effective as a replacement for injured Welshman Gareth Bale.
Vedran Corluka is a player who Liverpool will look to give the defence more strength in depth. The 25 year old can play as a right back as well as at the centre of defence and whilst youngster Martin Kelly has impressed greatly since his arrival on the scene, he is still clearly a very young player who the club will not want to seen burnt out.
Also given that the likes of Jamie Carragher and Sotiris Kyrgiakos are getting on in years, the addition of another central defensive option would be of great use. Corluka has been a consistent performer for the North London side during his two and a half years at the club but has seen his first team starts limited by the return to form of Scottish international Alan Hutton.
