The reformation of the Queens Park Rangers squad continues as Mark Hughes is set to make Niko Kranjcar his newest arrival at Loftus Road, according to the The Sun.
After successful bids for Manchester City’s Nedun Onuoha and AC Milan’s Taye Taiwo in the past 48 hours, Hughes is set to move onto building his midfield and Tottenham’s Kranjcar could be the first arrival. Harry Redknapp seems happy to let the Croatian midfielder leave White Hart Lane after he has failed to make any impact on the first team squad this season and has dropped to being a bit-part player.
Hughes is set to tempt Spurs with a £3million bid this month after he has been given full financial backing from his new clubs owners. Kranjcar arrived in North London for just £2.5million so Redknapp may be happy to let the 27-year-old move west if QPR make their move.
Kranjcar has admitted that he is frustrated at the lack of first team football, but has suggested he will not be pushing for a move (Guardian) despite no longer being a certainty in the Croatian midfield, just six months before Euro 2012. Tottenham could also allow fellow fringe players Sebastien Bassong, Vedran Corluka and Steven Pienaar leave in this transfer window to create funds for a big money signing to arrive at White Hart Lane.
