Liverpool to replace Suarez with Bundesliga hitman?

Klaas-Jan HuntelaarSo it seems Luis Suarez is off to Barcelona and Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are gutted at how things have turned out.

But according to the Daily Star, they could soon have something to shout about as their club go about replacing the Uruguayan bad boy.

It’s rumoured that Liverpool are keen on making Klaas-Jan Huntelaar his replacement but they face a fight from Arsenal who are also on the hunt for a striker.

Huntelaar is entering the final year of his contract at Schalke and could be available on a cut-price deal with the Gelsenkirchen-based side yet to offer him a new contract.

The 30-year old gained an assist and a goal from the penalty spot in Holland’s last sixteen victory against Mexico and no deal will be done until he returns from international duty.

But with £70-£80 million likely to come from the sale of Suarez, Liverpool will certainly have the bidding power to lure the Dutchman to the club should they so wish.

Liverpool fans. At 30-years-old Huntelaar is not getting any younger. How much should you pay Schalke to bring him to Anfield? Let us know your thoughts below.
