The Reds are currently preparing for life without talismanic striker Luis Suarez as he edges closer to signing for Spanish big hitters Barcelona, which has forced Brendan Rodgers to draw up a shortlist of potential replacements.
Despite adding Southampton and England forward Rickie Lambert to his attacking ranks, manager Brendan Rodgers has identified Huntelaar as the man to fill the void left by Suarez.
The 30-year-old is currently on international duty in Brazil, but is aware of the interest in his services from England, and though he has not ruled out the possibility of making a move to the northwest he has admitted that he will have to talk with Schalke before deciding on his future.
“Regarding the rumours about Liverpool it would only be fair to speak to Schalke first,” he said.
“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.”
