Schalke ace a Spurs target
Spurs are ready to battle it out with arch rivals Arsenal as well as Liverpool for the highly talented Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Andre Villas-Boas has yet to finish his squad strengthening and a top class forward is on his wanted list although he would face a major battle to land the striker who has taken the Bundesliga by storm in the last couple of years.
Like Villas-Boas, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Reds chief 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 and the other main players across Europe In Spain and Italy would also be interested.
The 29-year-old was left on the bench as Holland beat Romania 4-1 in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night, disappointing a host of scouts from across the continent who were in attendance.
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 as, despite his brilliant strike rate, Schalke are already trailing leaders Bayern Munich by seven points.
