Liverpool are on a serious recruitment drive this summer, as a plethora of names keep popping up about potential arrivals at Anfield.

Liverpool’s strike-force is now is serious area of concern with Luis Suarez, already banned for four months, looking set to join Barcelona.

Rickie Lambert was Brendan Rodgers’ first summer signing, but with Suarez’s exit on the horizon, Daniel Sturridge needs more help up-top if the Reds are to mount a serious title challenge.

Step forward Schalke and Holland forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Bild have quotes from the 30-year-old striker saying:

Regarding rumours about Liverpool it’d only be fair to speak to Schalke first.

The negotiations with the club have been running for some time. In the holidays I do not want anyone bothering me. After the holidays I’ll speak further with Schalke. This is soon enough.

I am now speaking with my manager and above the interests of the club. I concentrate on the World Cup.

Huntelaar has a contract with Schalke until 2015.
