Apparently we're in discussions with Huntelaar. He wants to go out on loan from AC Milan to try get into the Netherlands squad for the World Cup.
Would be a deadly acquisition if it went through.

Surely we won't have the finances to bring Huntelaar in? He would be a massive coup for us.

But still, a very good striker, deadly in front of the goal. He really needs to get the ball in the box though, don’t expect him to beat defenders with silky skills.
I guess he is even eligible to play in Europe. Would like to see him come. He will be very motivated because it looks like he won’t make it in the Holland first team for the World Championships right now. Let’s hope he proves his point with 20 goals ;-)

If so, how did Huntelaar do at Ajax? I’ve heard lots of people say how great he is but then all I actually know of him is that he’s warmed the bench at Real Madrid and AC Milan. It seems to be a very modern career, players like him bloody well should sign for a team like us and actually play football rather than watch it.
Did he play with Steven Pienaar at Ajax?

I’m not born Dutch by the way but live in Holland for most of my live.
Huntelaar scored for fun at Ajax. He did ok for Madrid in half a year, but Madrid started their spending spree and he had to go. I think he’s just not good enough for the real world class teams. I would like him at Everton but for longer as half a year. I think he needs to adapt to the Premier League.
He will score goals, no doubt, but don’t think he is the typical Moyes-kind of striker. Then again, both Saha and the Yak aren’t either.

I also watched that Catania game were he nabbed a brace in the first seconds of coming on, and single handedly pulled 3 points for Milan out of his Dutch Master-ass.
Hopefully Johnny’s speaking to him.

’HSV en Everton in markt’
’Van Nistelrooy en Huntelaar zijn gewild’
MILAAN - Klass-Jan Huntelaar (26) is een voorname kandidaat om AC Milan op huurbasis te verruilen voor Everton. De Italianen zijn bereid mee te werken.
My Dutch colleague says it basically is a loan deal and that AC don’t mind if it comes off, no doubt someone can give a more literal translation. The Van Horseface bit is only to do with HSV.

According to Dutch journalist Johan Derksen, Klaas Jan Huntelaar is hoping to sign a loan deal with Everton by the end of the week. I studied a bit in the Netherlands, and Derksen has a fairly good reputation.

’During his first two years with De Graafschap, Huntelaar played in various positions including left wing, attacking midfield, left back, and even goalkeeper.’
