Prolific Liverpool and Spurs target ‘keen to make the right move'

Klass Jan Huntelaar Netherlands

Klass-Jan Huntelaar has long been one of Europe's top strikers, and may now be available for a Premier League move, with Liverpool and Tottenham interested.

With one year left on his contract and with talks over an extension stalling with current club Schalke, it is easy to see why striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar is in demand across the continent, not to mention the Premier League.

His agent Arnold Oosterveer has said that plenty of clubs are interested in signing the ex Real Madrid and AC Milan player, who has continued to prove himself one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe, causing alleged interest from Liverpool and Spurs to resurface.

"We have received offers from Turkey for Huntelaar but we are still at an early stage," said Oosterveer.

"We have also had other offers and it's essential now that we make the right choice.

"I will hold talks with Schalke regarding his future.

"We will not make our final decision without discussing with Schalke first."

Liverpool were linked with Huntelaar last month, a rumour that was discarded by the Schalke general manager Horst Heldt, who claimed they weren't interested in selling.

But if the player wants to leave, the Bundesliga giants may be tempted to sell rather than lose him for nothing next summer.

The Dutchman has enjoyed four settled years at Schalke, having played for seven clubs in his career before winding up at the Veltins-Arena at the relatively young age of 26-years-old. He enjoyed a phenomenal season in 2012 when he scored a huge 48 goals in 48 games.

Last year Huntelaar had his injury problems, but still managed 14 goals in 21 games to make it to the World Cup with his country. The former Ajax man played a bit part in Brazil but netted the late penalty against Mexico that put the Oranje on the way to topping their group.

Given that he has scored a hatful of goals at whatever league he has been playing in, Huntelaar would be a top signing for any Premier League club looking for a striker.

At 30, he shouldn't cost a ridiculous amount either, and would look to be leading the line at either Liverpool or Spurs were he to switch to either club.

Of course, if he was to wind up at Anfield, he would be replacing former Ajax teammate Luis Suarez, with the two running riot in their time together in the Eredivise.
