Serie A trio want Niko – Agent

Kranjcar was a regular member of Harry Redknapp’s starting XI last

year but he has fallen down the pecking order this term, largely

due to the improvement of Gareth Bale and the signing of Steven

Pienaar. The 26-year-old has only made 17 appearances for the

Londoners this season, with his last start coming almost two months

ago when he scored in Spurs’ 2-1 win at Sunderland. The winger, who

has two years left on his contract, voiced his concern at a lack of

first-team football last month, and his agent, Adrian Aliaj, admits

he is becoming disheartened with warming the bench at White Hart

Lane. Kranjcar turned down the chance to move to Werder Bremen in

January, but may be tempted to move to one of the Serie A giants

interested in him this summer if Redknapp cannot give him

assurances about his future. “Niko is not happy with the situation

at Tottenham at the moment. He wants to play. It is a shame that a

man of Niko’s quality is on the bench,” Aliaj said. “He is loyal to

the club and has a contract but it is difficult for him. “It can be

a problem when a player is not playing. When he is not playing he

is not happy. He feels down. “Some clubs in Italy are interested

him. Lazio, Roma, Juventus – they are all interested, as well as

some teams in Spain and in Germany. “It’s normal to have teams like

these interested in a player with such quality. “Niko will meet

with the manager in the next seven to 10 days to sort out his

future. After this meeting, then we will know what is happening.”
