Inside Futbol claim that Liverpool are ready and waiting to launch a bid to sign Dutch international Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The Schalke man is in the final year of his current contract and could be available for a fraction of his market value when the transfer window re-opens.

This source believes that the Merseyside club are ready to make an offer for the 29 year old if he does indeed opt to reject any offer of a new deal from his current Bundesliga side.

The former Ajax man struggled at both Real Madrid and AC Milan before his move to the Bundesliga rejuvenated Huntelaar’s flagging career. Last term the Dutchman scored an incredible 47 goals in all competitions and has started the current campaign in a similar fashion.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has just two recognised senior strikers but currently only has Uruguayan international Luis Suarez available as new signing Fabio Borini is sidelined with a broken foot.
