Klaas-Jan Huntelaar may be set to leave Bundesliga outfit Schalke in January, with clubs in the Premier League, Serie A and La Liga interested in procuring his services, according to his agent.

Huntelaar's contract expires at the end of the current season, and Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have all been linked with the striker in recent weeks.

A report in the Sun newspaper claims Schalke will accept a £7 million bid, and his representative Arnold Oosterveer suggested the Netherlands international is looking for a new challenge.

"Klaas has not decided," Oosterveer told the Sun. "He's had offers from England, Italy and Spain. It's also possible he could stay in Germany.

"He wants his future planned by the winter. In the next 45 days he wants to know his next project and it will be decided by his football ambitions and not by money.

"His dream is to fight to win titles in Europe and to have chances to be successful, because today he is one of the best strikers in Europe."

Huntelaar enjoyed a fine season last term, scoring 48 goals in 47 games in all competitions, and has netted eight in 15 appearances in this campaign.
