Reported Arsenal target Klaas Jan Huntelaar has been told he is not a part of Real Madrid’s plans anymore hence his departure seems inevitable now. The question is when and where to? Arsenal are considered front runners for the signature of the Dutch international as a replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor.
The Real Madrid forward has been left out of the pre-season squad and his shirt number has been given to a youngster who is a youth team product of Real. So Huntelaar has clearly been told he is unwanted at the Bernebaeu.
The 25 year old is Arsenal fan’s favourite choice to replace Emmanuel Adebayor and his stats show why. 76 goals from 92 appearances for Ajax, 8 from 20 for Real Madrid and 13 from 23 for Netherlands. One thing is for sure, a new striker is needed at Arsenal. Doesn’t matter if the fans hated Adebayor, the point is he was a 15+ goals a season forward and hence needs to be replaced. Ok Eduardo is back but you cannot be sure injuries won’t come back to ruin Arsenal’s chances again so a new striker is needed. Arsene has the money now. 25m from Adebayor and now 16m from Toure. Add to that the money they already had and surely there’s enough money to buy a world class striker and a holding midfielder.
