Arsenal Close In On Dutch Striker

By on December 10, 2012

Despite the transfer window being closed, there is always transfer gossip doing the rounds in the papers and we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest news during the coming months. Today, more on Arsenal’s move for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Klaas-Jan-Huntelaar

Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal that would see Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar move to the Emirates in January, according to the Metro.

The free-scoring Dutchman has made a name for himself as being one of the most prolific striker’s in Europe, with career stats of 258 goals in 398 games is testament to that, and he’s continued to add to his reputation with 58 goals in his last 68 Bundesliga games for the German outfit.

The report states the 29-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has so far been unable to agree terms over an extension, meaning he is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club in just a few weeks time.

However, the Metro are reporting that Huntelaar is ‘poised to join Arsenal’ in January with the player said to be keen on a move to the Premier League and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay Schalke around £4m to bring him to north London when the transfer window re-opens next month.

Huntelaar would be an excellent signing should we manage to pull this one off. We saw first hand how devastating he can be in front of goal as he netted in both Champions League games against us this season.

While Olivier Giroud is adapting well and always puts a shift in up front, I think it’s safe to say we need to add another striker to the squad next month and if Huntelaar is available, we shouldn’t hesitate. Get the deal done Arsene!

    I think he is a good player. But, our club problem is’t solved through signing only one or two players. It requires transformation. We want change club management style. From Ethiopia!!!

    This shouldn’t be one rumour that flies and dies. He is a proven goal scorer and the deal should be done quickly before he’s hijack by one of those big clubs.
