Reports suggest that Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has touched down in Manchester ahead of a move to the Premier League.

Talksport believe that the 26-year-old flew into Manchester airport late last night, but it is unclear as to whether he will be signing for Man United, Man City or Liverpool - after all three clubs have been heavily linked with the AC Milan hitman.

One thing that seems certain is that Arsenal and Tottenham are out of the race for the highly sought after former Ajax forward, even though the Gunners were originally thought to be the front runners for his signature.

It is understood that each of the five clubs had made enquiries about the Holland ace after Milan chief-executive Adriano Galliani revealed that the Rossoneri planned to offload Huntelaar to England.

'The Hunter' gained a reputation as a prolific goalscorer during his time in the Eredivise with SC Heerenveen and Ajax before he was rewarded with a big-money move to Real Madrid in January 2009. However, he failed to make an impact at the Bernabeu and was snapped up for €15 million by Milan just seven months later.

But he has fallen out of favour at the San Siro, and is desperate to move away in order to gain first team football.

"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," he said.

"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."
