Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar wants a move to the Premier League this summer, and the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham could swoop for him at the right price. 

This has been reported by the Express, who have suggested that the forward, who was part of Louis van Gaal's Dutch World Cup squad, is set to reject interest from Turkish outfit Galatasaray in favour of a move to England's elite division.

The Dutchman has certainly proved his credentials throughout his career, having starred at a number of top clubs, including the likes of Real Madrid and Ajax. The 30-year-old has been a key member of the Dutch national side for some time now, and was able to find the net in Brazil this past summer. 

However, with the player currently starring in the Bundesliga, it appears that he's finally ready to head to England, but it remains to be seen as to whether any of the elite clubs in the Premier League make their move in the near future. As well as the likes of Arsenal and Co., Liverpool have also been credited with interest in the Schalke man in recent time, as reported in the Express. 

It appears, though, that the Reds' imminent signing of French international Loic Remy has opened the door for other teams to make their move. The striker, of course, gave us one of the goals of the season in the 2013/14 Champions League, which can be seen here: 

Who needs him? 

With it seemingly uncertain as to whether any of the top clubs will make a move for him in this window, he may well prove a major coup for potential suitors.

Despite the fact that Huntelaar starred under Van Gaal at this summer's World Cup, it would be a surprise if Manchester United moved in for the forward. After all, the Red Devils have an array of talent in their forward line, meaning Huntelaar would struggle for game time at the Theatre of Dreams. 

Arsenal, on the other hand, are still in need of an out-and-out striker, despite the club having already splashed the cash on former Barcelona man Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean star, however, may play in and around the Gunners' attack next term, meaning Wenger could still do with improving his options at the Emirates. 

Meanwhile, Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham could also do with improving their front line ahead of the new season. Spurs, who lost Jermain Defoe in January, are yet to replace the forward, and Huntelaar could prove quite the coup for Mauricio Pochettino at White Hart Lane.
