Gunners target Schalke ace
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to slug it out with Spurs and Liverpool for the highly talented Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
The Frenchman has already ordered his worldwide network of scouts to find him a world-class striker in the January transfer window, as Olivier Giroud has not yet found his feet as Robin Van Persie's replacement.
And the Frenchman, like Andre Villas-Boas and Brendan Rodgers is in awe of the Dutch hitman's strike-rate, he has already netted six goals in eleven games for German outfit Schalke 04 after grabbing over 40 in 60 plus appearances last term.
Huntelaar has also been linked with a £15million move to Chelsea after making it clear in recent statements that he hasn't decided on remaining with the Bundesliga outfit.
Wenger intends to steal a march on his rivals by having his scouts spy on the 29-year-old as Holland travel to Romania for a World Cup qualifier.
Sources close to the striker insist the Dutch goal machine would welcome a move to the Premiership, as he feels he would have more chance of silverware.
For despite his brilliant strike rate Schalke are already trailing leaders Bayern Munich by seven points.
