Liverpool put Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Walcott and Sturridge on their transfer list
Liverpool are in hunt of reinforcements for their strike-force. Liverpool have already labelled Arsenal’s Theo Walcott and Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge as their transfer targets during the winter transfer window. Now, there is a new man on the list, Schalke’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Brendan Rodgers believes that hot-shot Dutchman is the man who can end Liverpool’s miseries upfront. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has been in top class form for Schalke for the past couple of seasons.
The 29-year-old Netherlands international has scored 67 goals in 94 appearances for Schalke in three seasons. Last season, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored 48 goals in 47 appearances for Schalke.
No major football club has approached Schalke with interest in Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, which means Liverpool can but the veteran cheaply.
Reportedly, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar can be fetched for as low as £6 million. Brendan Rodgers is being allotted funds by Liverpool to sign in a couple of strikers during the winter transfer window. Presently, Luis Suarez is the only striker in Liverpool’s squad.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has already scored eight goals for Schalke this season. The former Ajax star had unsuccessful spells at Real Madrid and AC Milan in 2008 and 2009. A move to Schalke in 2010 rejuvenated the career of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has the potential to become a good pair with Luis Suarez. Both players possess the chemistry and skill to turn Liverpool’s fate around.
Brendan Rodgers will attempt to sign in Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge as well. The former Swansea City manager is rebuilding Liverpool’s squad from scratch, a process which according to him would take more than three years.
Both, Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge are eyeing away moves because of little playing in the first team at Arsenal and Chelsea. Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge would cost Liverpool as much as £20 million, but considering their talents it would be a good deal.
Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge can play as attacking midfielder, center forward, strikers, on both wings and on the false line.
