Germans determined to keep star man from Arsenal’s clutches

Huntelaar.jpgThe Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are discussing players that are linked to the club every season without a deal ever actually coming to fruition.

One of them is definitely Klaas-Jan Hunterlaar who is seemingly linked to the Gunners every single time the transfer window opens, whether it is the January window or the summer one.

And according to the Daily Express, Schalke are doing their best to stave off interest from the Gunners yet again as they try to tie him down to a new deal in Gelsenkirchen.

The Dutch striker had been tipped to arrive at the Emirates Stadium on deadline day as a replacement for the injured Olivier Giroud.

However, Arsene Wenger chose to sign Manchester United reject Danny Welbeck instead in a deal worth £16 million just moments before the window slammed shut.

Schalke though are taking no chances and plan to offer the striker – who has one year left on his contract – a new deal to stay with the Bundesliga outfit.

Huntelaar has found the back of the net 92 times in 140 appearances since signing for the German club from AC Milan in 2010.

Arsenal fans. You are never too far away from being linked to a Huntelaar move but do you have regrets about never actually luring the striker to the club? Let us know your thoughts below.
