Arsenal target Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has hinted at a potential move away from AC Milan this summer.

The Dutch striker has found himself on the fringes at the San Siro, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is among a number of managers monitoring the highly-rated striker.

Huntelaar shot to prominence at Ajax, continuing his fine form from previous club Heerenveen by scoring 76 goals in 92 Eredivisie appearances for the Godenzonen.

Real Madrid would pay a fee in the region of €20 million for the forward in January '09, but after just six months at the Bernabeu Huntelaar was sold to his current Serie 'A' club for a reduced €15 million.

Opportunities in Milan have been limited, and Huntelaar has revealed that he's desperate to play more football.

"We will see what happens when I get back to Italy," Huntelaar told The People.

"But the truth is I want to play football - I don't want to be just sitting on the bench - so we will see what happens.

"Of course, the Champions League is important and every player wants to play there but the most important thing for me is simply to play. That is the number one priority."

Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Liverpool are also thought to be keen on the player's services, although Huntelaar will cost a Premier League suitor in the region of €15 million as the Rossoneri look to recoup their cash.
