Paul Hart has confirmed Portsmouth interest in Croatia striker Nikola Kalinic and former Liverpool full-back Steve Finnan.

The 21-year-old Kalinic currently plays for Hajduk Split and reports on Tuesday suggested he is on the verge of a £5.5million transfer, although Hart refused to speculate on that.

Finnan agreed a release package with Spanish side Espanyol on Monday to cut short his contract just a year after leaving Anfield for Barcelona's second club.

"Steve Finnan is one of many people we are interested in. As is Nikola Kalinic," said Hart.

"Steve is a quality player and if you saw my list you could probably see a few more quality players there.

"He's a very experienced player, like many others on the list."
