Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar cannot rule out a move to Liverpool. The Dutchman is being linked with Liverpool as a replacement for Barcelona target Luis Suarez.

"Regarding the rumours about Liverpool it would only be fair to speak to Schalke first," he told De Telegraaf.

"I've talked with Schalke about an extension for a while. After the World Cup I am having a holiday. Then I will speak to them again.

"With my agent, I now do not talk about the interest from clubs. I focus on the tournament."
