The 21-year-old recently agreed to join Burnley on loan until the end of the season in order to gain regular football but still wants to make an impact with the Cottagers
The 21-year old made 19 appearances for the Cottagers prior to February, but fell down the pecking order after a productive winter transfer window for the west London club.
But the Swede says he has no qualms about making a temporary move away from Craven Cottage in order to improve as a player.
"I am happy at Fulham. My target is to play every week and become one of their main players," he told the Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle.
"But I've got a better chance of first-team football here at the moment. They have a lot of games still to play, so that's why I wanted to come to Burnley.
"It's also an opportunity to show the Fulham manager what I can do. Hopefully I can get some goals and assists and help the team."
Kacaniklic signed for Fulham from Liverpool in 2010 as a makeweight in the deal which saw Paul Konchesky move the other way.
Although he feels he needs to play more games in order to progress, Kacaniklic has expressed delight with how well his season has gone so far.
"It's been a good season. I've made 12 starts in the Premier League and scored three goals," he added.
"I've also made my debut for the [Sweden] national team and managed to get a couple of MoMs. But I feel I need to be playing to continue my progress, which is why I came here."
