Niko Kranjcar: Thought to be attracting interest from former boss Redknapp

Croatia international Kranjcar played under former Spurs boss Redknapp at White Hart Lane after being brought to North London by the manager from Pompey in 2009.

He departed for Ukraine last summer after falling down the pecking order at Spurs, with injuries hindering his progress.

Now Redknapp is understood to be targeting another reunion with the 28-year-old attacking midfielder.

QPR have already struck in this month's transfer market as they look to escape relegation from the Premier League this season, bringing in Loic Remy from Marseille.

Redknapp is also understood to be interested in signing Sissoko but Sky Sports understands the Toulouse midfielder's preference is to join Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, QPR's pursuit of Peter Odemwingie remains ongoing and the West Bromwich Albion striker is said to be keen on a move but there has been no new bid.

However, QPR are preparing an improved offer for another West Brom player, Jonas Olsson, in their continued chase of the centre-back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
