Kranjcar coy on Portsmouth future

Kranjcar enjoyed a successful season with Portsmouth

Portsmouth midfielder Niko Kranjcar has admitted he could be tempted to move to a bigger club but insisted he is happy at Fratton Park.

The 23-year-old Croatia international helped Pompey to their highest-ever Premier League finish as well as FA Cup glory at Wembley on Saturday.

Kranjcar told BBC Radio Solent: "I dream about playing for the biggest clubs in the world.

"But there are a lot of things I still want to achieve here."

It is believed Arsenal are among the clubs interested in signing Kranjcar.

The Gunners are looking for a replacement for Matthieu Flamini, who joined AC Milan at the end of the season - and they could also lose Belarus international Alex Hleb.

However, Pompey boss Harry Redknapp is unlikely to give up Kranjcar without a fight as he prepares to take his side into Europe for the first time next season.

Kranjcar, who joined Portsmouth for about 3.5m from Hajduk Split in 2006, made 39 appearances for the club last season and scored five goals.

He also scored for his country at Wembley last November as Croatia ended England's Euro 2008 campaign hopes with a 3-2 victory.
