Liverpool prepare bumper January offer for Huntelaar

Liverpool are lining up a January bid for Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The Sunday Mirror says Huntelaar is out of contract at Schalke 04 in the summer and is expected to reject a final offer from the Germans.

At 29, the ex-PSV Eindhoven, Ajax, Real Madrid and AC Milan hit-man does not fit the age ­profile Liverpool's owners have put in place for new signings.

But manager Brendan Rodgers needs to add ­experience to his young team and Huntelaar's contract dispute makes him available at the right kind of price. One problem for Rodgers will be to convince the Dutchman Liverpool have a great future as well as a glorious past.
