Would you like to see Huntelaar at Arsenal this January? [poll results]

Recent reports suggest Arsenal are considering the possibility of making a move for Schalke’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in the January transfer window.

Now I for one would be delighted to see the 29-year-old Dutchman join our club and, in doing so, add more firepower to our current misfiring squad. And for £6 million – the fee reports claim will be enough to land the forward – you can’t really go wrong, can you?

He is a proven striker and has played for some prestigious clubs in his time before eventually signing for in 2010, and I believe the Holland international would be an ideal acquisition for us this winter.

But I wanted to find out what other Gooners out there thought on the matter. So I decided to conduct a poll asking the Gunnersphere audience the simple question – would you like to see Huntelaar at in January?

To be honest, I wasn’t shocked at the results of this poll. Not at all.

Results showed that a staggering 91% of votes cast (594 in total) would like to see the experienced striker at The Emirates this winter, while 9% (51 votes) obviously believe there is a better option available.

With his current contract set to expire in the summer and no signs of his extending his stay at Schalke, expect to see and hear Huntelaar’s name mentioned a lot this winter.

    Huntelaar is not a bad player but he I dont think Arsene Wenger will be interested in him.To buy him would be toadmit that Giroud et al cant cut it.Personally I would hold fire until the Summer and use some of their Emirates money to attract the brilliant Uruguayan Cavani

    He’s doesn’t seems to be tough enough for the perm and I’m not sure if he will unlock defense as he is not a dribbler. What’s the use of having him and Giroud.

      It’s not a dribbling centre forward we need rather one who can stick the ball in the net and play with a bit of authority.Anyway at the moment arsenal are not creating chances so no centre forward is going to score a lot

    Arsenal doesn’t need to buy anyone right now, especially Huntelaar, he’s not premier league material, keep the players they have for once and build some team chemistry and then we can actually contend for some silverware.

      i think gunners4711 is a bit deluded,we dont have any chemistry right now we do need 2-3 players if not starters squad players,i suggest shay given(keeper)yanga-mbiwa,rami(defence)capone,mvila,biglia(def-mid)marin,martin,gourcuff(att-mid)huntelaar,llorente,dzagoev(forwards)im not saying buy all but i believe any would be better than we have now,,let go mannone,fabianski,squillaci,djourou,santos,diaby,walcott,gervino,arshavin,chamakh,bendtner,denilson,park,most of these are not good enough or just have no heart so all surplus.

    Yes i’d love to see any player who scores goals regulary join us but can’t see this one doing that because of the state we’re in at the moment and even if he wanted to join la boss won’t open that rusty purse. And it will keep going on like this until something is done about it.

    If we don’t reach the champions league we’ll lose more of our top players and it will cost us one hell of a lot more cash in the long run to replace these as no top class player would want to join a club not in europe.

    The writing is on the wall and it reads DECLINE OF A GREAT CLUB! BEWARE!!!!!

    Yes, get him and Yanga Mbiwa, Baines, Wanyama, Reina.

    Fabianski, Mannone, Squillachi, Djorou, Santos, Denilson, Diaby, Bendtner, Chamakh, even Gervinho can all be sold on if possible to clear funds and streamline the team.

    5 players in and 10 out, should clear some cash for wages, even if incoming transfers are more expensive.
