The Netherlands international, who has been linked with Premier League sides many times before, impressed English suitors with a crucial equalising goal away to Chelsea in the Champions League this week, earning his side a surprise draw at Stamford Bridge.
All three clubs could do with further signings upfront, with Arsenal and Liverpool missing Olivier Giroud and Daniel Sturridge through injury, while new signings Danny Welbeck and Mario Balotelli continue to settle in at their new clubs.
Huntelaar’s experience and proven goalscoring record at the top level makes him a tempting prospect for any top club, with Tottenham also hoping to be in with a chance of signing him as they eye improvements to Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado.
The 31-year-old has been with Schalke since 2010, finding some of the best form of his career in Germany after some disappointing spells with Real Madrid and AC Milan, and it would be great to see him try his hand at Premier League football before the end of his career.
