Arsenal and Spurs have been put on red alert after Schalke made Dutch international striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar available for transfer, paving the way for the two north London sides to finally capture a long term transfer target, as reported Daily Star.
The Netherlands forward spent the summer being linked with a switch away from the Bundesliga.
Reports suggested that a series of top European sides had identified Huntelaar as an ideal addition to improve their strike force.
Of those teams, both Arsenal and Spurs were said to be keen on the talented forward.
In fact, Arsenal were said to have made a bid, but Schalke then rejected the bid from Arsene Wenger, before the French boss turned to Danny Welbeck instead.
The German side are now thought to be willing to sell Huntelaar, with the club willing to let him go for only £3 million.
Huntelaar’s contract expires in the summer, and Schalke are keen to see at least some return on the player.
