German outfit Schalke are hoping to agree a new deal with forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, according to the Express.

Huntelaar runs out of contract at the Bundesliga outfit at the end of the season, with the same report suggesting that a number of Premier League clubs were looking at securing a pre-contact January deal for the player's services. 

In fact, as many as three teams have been credited with interest in the striker, with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham all seemingly interested in the experienced star. 

However, Schalke appear to be determined to keep the 31-year-old at the club, and it now seems likely that he will stay on at the club beyond the end of this campaign. 

When speaking about the striker, general manager Horst Heldt, told reporters: “I am able to confirm a chat with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

“It was a good conversation. Both parties have signalled a basic interest in a new agreement to carry on together in the future.”

It appears, then, that the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool will have to look elsewhere in the next couple of transfer windows as they look to improve their strike forces. Arsenal added Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck to their club last summer, but could look to further improve in 2015.

Liverpool, on the other hand, landed Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert last summer, but the duo have struggled to settle at Anfield. Spurs, under Mauricio Pochettino, may also look to improve in the attacking department, as they look to improve in 2015.
