Liverpool to Continue Spending on Final Day for Spur's Kranjcar and Corluka

(Bleacher Report) This morning Caughtoffside has reported that Liverpool are still in spending mode as they have been in contact with Tottenham Hotspur about both Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka.

Both could be set for Anfield with a total combined fee of £15 million int he works. Liverpool's Damien Comolli was in part responsible for the additions of both players to Tottenham when he worked for the club previously before ever coming to Merseyside.

The two players are part of Spurs Croatian contingent that includes current Chelsea target Luka Modric. Corluka is a versatile player that Spurs have used all over the pitch, while Kranjcar has been displaced at times due to the presence of Modric and has never really shown his full potential at the London club.

Since joining the London club in 2008 Corluka has made 91 total appearances for the club scoring only one goal. Kranjcar joined in 2009 and has made 42 league appearances scoring 12 goals.

Liverpool were linked with Kranjcar several times during and after January's transfer window, but it is surprising to see his possible transfer come up again after the additions of Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson to the core of the Reds midfield.

Both players could make a contribution to the Reds campaign, but they would most likely be fringe players at best with Steven Gerrard set to return in September and the midfield already overstocked.
