Liverpool Enter The Race To Sign Prolific Dutch Striker

Liverpool are reportedly showing an interest in Holland international Klaas Jan Huntelaar just days after the prolific forward distanced himself from a move to Manchester United.

The striker had been linked with a possible move to Old Trafford in the January transfer window, but Huntelaar made it clear that he was unaware of any interest from the Premier League champions.

"I know nothing of alleged interest from Manchester United. I will not even speculate, I am concentrating fully on Schalke," revealed Huntelaar.

"I'll let any offers come to me quietly and will then see what happens. This is the attitude I’ve always had. My contract runs until the summer of 2013. If they [Schalke] want to talk, I'll gladly listen.”

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish once again saw his side waste a number of opportunities on Boxing Day as the Reds were held to a 1-1 draw with struggling Blackburn Rovers.

With Luis Suarez facing an eight match ban and Andy Carroll yet to discover his best form for Liverpool, it seems the club could yet dip into the transfer market in January.

Huntelaar has scored 15 goals in 16 league appearances this season and seems to have rediscovered the form that saw him move from Ajax to Real Madrid back in 2009.

Reports have suggested that Schalke would demand as much as £15million for the 28-year-old who would certainly bring a superb record with him to the Premier League.

Huntelaar was prolific during his days in Holland and despite a difficult time in Spain and Italy, is once again back to his clinical best.
