Agent: English interest in Huntelaar

Several Premier League clubs - believed to be Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur - are interested in signing out-of-favour AC Milan forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

The 26-year-old joined the San Siro side from Real Madrid last summer having struggled to establish himself at the Bernabeu, scoring eight league goals in 20 appearances.

However, his move to Milan has not panned out as planned, with the former Ajax man netting just three Serie A goals for Leonardo's outfit, two coming in injury-time against Catania in November.

With the Dutchman finding first-team outings hard to come by once more, speculation has surfaced tipping him to switch clubs for the third time in a year.

And after Huntelaar admitted that he is seriously considering a switch - preferably on loan - to maximise his chances of being named in Holland's squad for the World Cup, his agent Arnold Oosterveer has confirmed that clubs from England have expressed an interest.

"There are some clubs in England interested in the player, that is correct. But out of respect for the clubs I cannot tell you [which ones]," he told Soccernet.

"It depends. In football everything is possible and in the last week a lot of things can happen. He wants to play more than he plays now and if that is in England or Germany or Spain or Italy, that is for him.

"There is no problem at the moment and I hope Milan want to cooperate for the next four months and play him, because he needs to play more."

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confessed that he is searching for a striker in January, having lost the services of both Robin van Persie and Nicklas Bendtner through injury.

Spurs supremo Harry Redknapp has already revealed he may move to bring in another goal-getter - possibly Ruud van Nistelrooy - should Roman Pavlyuchenko leave White Hart Lane.

While Red Devils' boss Sir Alex Ferguson could be tempted to take the once-prolific Huntelaar to United on loan with question marks surrounding the fitness of Dimitar Berbatov.
