Spurs look to outbid Chelsea for £18m record striker signing

Once again we look at a striker very much in the minds of Premier League managers as potential goal getter for their side, that man is Ajax man Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. Apparently scouts from many English clubs have been eyeing up the Dutch international with a view to a potential pricey summer bid.

Frank Arnesen had Chelsea scout Hans Gillhaus watch Huntelaar in action last weekend and he saw the striker score twice in Ajax’s 4-2 win at Heerenveen (various)

The 24 year old has some strike rate in the Dutch Eredivisie, but perhaps more importantly, a decent record in European competitions also. Whereas many names have been mentioned with moves to both London clubs, Huntelaar could be a big success in the Premier League maybe even comparable to that Dutch guy who played at Man United and looked a bit like a horse!
