Serie A Transfer News — 15 November 2012

Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is being linked with a big money move away from the Bundesliga.

The 29 year-old has been prolific in the Bundesliga in recent seasons and his form has led to the Holland international being linked with a move away from Gelsenkirchen.


Huntelaar’s contract in Germany expires in 2013 and there has been speculation that he has already agreed a January move to the Premier League. However, his agent has moved to deny that Huntelaar has agreed a move to England.

Arnoldus Oosterveer Huntelaar’s representative told “There is no agreement with any English club and Klaas has not yet decided anything about his future,”

“He has not decided if he wants to play in Italy, Spain, England or stay in Germany. He is planning his future in the winter.”


Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have all been linked with a move for the striker. However, it’s also emerged that Serie A champions Juventus have entered the race to sign the striker. The Bianconeri have been looking to sign a striker and could make a move for the Dutchman in January.

Juve boss Antonio Conte could see Huntelaar as an ideal addition to his strike force. Huntelaar has already spent some time in the Italian top flight, having played for giants AC Milan. The striker never really nailed down a regular first team place with the Rossoneri and moved on to join German side Schalke.


Huntelaar’s future is unknown. The Dutch international has matured since his days with AC Milan. He has developed his game playing regularly in the Bundesliga and scoring goals at a prolific rate. The time could be right for a return to the Italian top flight.

At 29 years-old Klaas-Jan Huntelaar looks to be ready to have another crack at Serie A, whether he will get that chance remains to be seen.
