Liverpool make Bundesliga striker top target

Liverpool have made Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar their top transfer target, according to reports.

TalkSPORT cites Dutch speculation when claiming that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has made the 29-year-old his number one priority, with the Northern Irishman desperate for reinforcements up-front at the next opportunity.

Luis Suarez is the only fit senior striker currently on the books at Anfield, scoring six of his side’s 12 goals in the Premier League. Fabio Borini is out for months with a broken ankle, whilst Andy Carroll is out-of-favour and out on loan away from Liverpool.

Huntelaar, who is out of contract with his Bundesliga side in the summer, will be free to negotiate with clubs in January ahead of a potential free transfer at the end of the season.

That could force Schalke’s hand over a transfer, with Huub Stevens having to decide whether to sell for a cut-price fee or lose the player for nothing when the current campaign concludes.

Either way, Liverpool will have a chance to land Huntelaar for a competitive price, with Rodgers eyeing the possibility of pairing the Dutchman with Suarez once again.

The duo enjoyed 18 successful months as a partnership at Ajax, before Huntelaar moved on to Real Madrid and then AC Milan. But, after two-and-and-a-half seasons in Germany, the strike-force could be reunited at Liverpool if Rodgers gets his way.
