Pompey target Kranjcar stay

12 Jan 2009 - 13:22:56

Portsmouth have confirmed that they are in talks to try and agree a new extended contract with Croatia playmaker Niko Kranjcar.

Pompey want to tie the 24-year-old to Fratton Park until the summer of 2013, although manager Tony Adams wants to see Kranjcar's form improve in the near future.

He told The News: "Niko can do better. He knocked in a few goals last season, but he hasn't scored since he was a super sub a couple of months ago, though.

"I expect more from my great players, because they are great players and Niko is a great player.

"I want to stretch my players, always push them and I think he is someone who needs that.

"He is a great footballer and needs to keep delivering."

Kranjcar has scored eight goals in 84 appearances for Pompey since his arrival from Dinamo Zagreb.

Meanwhile, Pompey's search for a new striker has thrown up links to Wolfsburg's Edin Dzeko, Real Madrid's Javier Saviola and Werder Bremen frontman Boubacar Sanogo.
