Kranjcar has two years remaining on his current contract but is frustrated at the lack of first-team opportunities at Spurs, having made just two league starts this season. With just 17 appearances in all competitions, Kranjcar suggested last week that he was eyeing a move abroad.

His agent, Adrian Aliaj, has now claimed Lazio, Roma and Juventus are all interested in signing his client and expects his future to be decided within the next ten days.

"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 ten days to sort out his future. After this meeting, then we will know what is happening."
