Kranjcar: Very best will want Spurs move if Champions League qualification clinched

Niko Kranjcar believes Tottenham can attract the game's biggest names if they qualify for the Champions League.

Tottenham are fourth with seven games to play, following the 2-0 win over Portsmouth, and after playing Sunderland away next weekend they face his former club again in the FA Cup semi-final.

"I believe that Spurs could attract even bigger players if we reached the Champions League," the Croatian midfielder told the Telegraph. "It has a massive history in English football and in European football.

"With the fan base and new training ground, it is a top, top club.

"We're definitely equipped to do well in the Champions League.

"You need to strengthen and build up your squad. Barcelona made a couple of changes in their team and they won six trophies in a season. You need to improve your team each year.

"Of course, the Champions League is massive. Every player wants to play in it. It's the biggest tournament around in football. I dreamed about it when I was a kid.

"Even when I was at Hadjuk Split and Dinamo Zagreb, I dreamed of playing in the Champions League. Dinamo Zagreb did play in the Champions League for two seasons."
