Oosterveer denies deal agreed for Liverpool & Arsenal striker target
Liverpool & Arsenal transfer news: Klaas-Jan Huntelaar not leaving Schalke, says Arnoldus Oosterveer
The agent of reported Liverpool and Arsenal target Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, has denied an agreement has been reached with a Premier League club over the transfer of the Schalke striker, reports Sky Sports.
With the 29-year-old out of contract at the end of the season, the Bundesliga outfit have been locked in negotiations with the Netherlands international, trying to get him to sign a new deal. But, as talks continue to stall, it's prompted a raft of speculation about his future.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is known to be in the market for attacking reinforcements at Anfield in January, with Luis Suarez the club's only fit first-team striker at present, after Fabio Borini was ruled out for three months with an injury picked up during the last international break.
Arsene Wenger has also been credited with an interest in bringing Huntelaar to the Emirates Stadium in January, despite spending more than £20million on Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski in the summer.
Huntelaar's representative, Arnoldus Oosterveer, has played down speculation linking his client with a move to England, but did reveal that he's keeping his options open and will make a decision on his future in the New Year.
"There is no agreement with any English club and Klaas has not yet decided anything about his future," he told calciomercato.it. "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.
"Currently no hypothesis is rejected because in football you never know. So you [will] have to wait to know Huntelaar's future."
