‘favourites to land him’ the Holland international.
The 29-year-old has managed to net nine goals in 18 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga side so far, including two against The Gunners in both of their two Champions League Group Stage meetings this season.
Huntelaar’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and with no signs of renewing his stay at Schalke, the Dutch striker appears to want a new challenge, and seems keen on a move to Arsenal in January – if recent reports are to be believed of course.
His current manager, Horst Heldt, claims the rumours of the player leaving Schalke are rubbish and unless a bid is lodged then Huntelaar will remain at the Veltins-Arena, with the forward suggesting he ‘knows nothing’.
Reports imply Huntelaar can be acquired for around £6 million this winter, a sum which will no doubt have Arsene Wenger tinkering over.
So taking all this into consideration, would you like to see the former Ajax, AC Milan and Real Madrid forward at The Emirates this winter?
