Tottenham Offer Kranjcar Plus Cash For Montolivo

According to corriere dello Sport, perennial Premier League under-achiever's Tottenham are set to offer a player plus cash deal for Fiorentina's want-away midfielder Riccardo Montolivo.

Spurs are expected to offload Niko Kranjcar plus other incentives, in order to achieve their aim. Arsenal and Ac Milan were initially believed to be the front-runners in the race for the Italy international's signature, but they've gradually lost their edge due to some circumstances beyond their control.

Thanks to Viola sporting director Pantaleo Corvino's decision not to sell the 26-year-old playmaker to Seria A suitors, Arsenal are still in a favourable position to snap Montolivo, if only the board chooses to up their meagre offer.
