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 Schalke 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 Arsenal 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.
