Kranjcar, 26, who joined Spurs from Portsmouth in September 2009, has started only two of his side's 33 Premier League games this season and the club turned down an offer from Werder Bremen for him in the January transfer window.

"Is there a point of beginning next season as a bit-part player? None whatsoever,'' Kranjcar said in quotes reported by The Sun.

"I have an agreed meeting with the chairman (Daniel Levy) and the manager (Harry Redknapp), it should happen within a week. After the meeting I want to have a clear picture about my status.

"I would definitely be interested in moving to Italy. I think I would adapt quickly to Italian football.''
