Meijer says Arsenal boss Wenger will get Huntelaar in January

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger wants to sign Schalke contract rebel Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in January. The Daily Mail says despite spending £24million on Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud in the summer, Arsene Wenger is in the market for another forward and is understood to have been impressed by Huntelaar.

The 29-year-old former Ajax, Real Madrid, and AC Milan striker has scored in both Schalke's Champions League ties against the Gunners this season.

Former Holland striker Erik Meijer, a TV pundit whose agent Arnold Oosterveer now represents Huntelaar, believes his fellow Dutchman is bound for the Emirates in January.

"According to the information I have, Huntelaar will be gone in the winter," said Meijer.

"Arsenal FC are the favourites to land him."
