[Mercato] Roma court Kranjcar

After snapping up John Arne Riise, Roma are again looking to the English Premier League with a bid for Portsmouth's Niko Kranjcar.

The Croatian midfielder is currently in action with his country for the European Championship in Austria and Switzerland.

"I haven't had any direct contact with any clubs," he assured. "For me, it is not the right moment to talk about a transfer."

It would be a tricky transfer to complete, as Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp is determined to keep hold of his star player.

Still only 23 and able to play in an advanced attacking role, Kranjcar would fit in to Luciano Spalletti’s 4-2-3-1 system.

He has only been at Portsmouth for a year, but is understandably looking to a more prestigious side after impressing at Euro 2008.

It would be the second major signing from the Premier League for Roma, who already picked up Riise from Liverpool this week.

However, the Giallorossi face competition for Kranjcar's signature from Arsenal.
