Huntelaar: Another Van Nistelrooy or the new Dirk Kuyt?

Huntelaar: Another Van Nistelrooy or the new Dirk Kuyt?


According to Talksport, Tottenham will be offered the chance to sign Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for £16 million in the summer. Many fans will be split on this, as there are rumours that he rejected the chance to join Spurs a few years ago.

Huntelaar is without doubt a good player, with 26 goals in 42 games for Holland and with our midfield behind him I believe a natural born finisher like Huntelaar would score goals. Though often thought of as a mere poacher, he is also tall and good in the air.

There have always been doubts though as to whether Huntelaar is really a top class forward. He failed to set the world alight at either Real Madrid or AC Milan, while his career at Schalke has stalled somewhat after a bright start.

Is Huntelaar just another of the many strikers who can do it in Holland but nowhere else, or could he be as successful as his countryman Ruud Van Nistelrooy, in the right team? If he did sign, would he improve us?


  1. Much better than what we have, just ask yourself this, would any of our forwards get anywhere near Real’s/Milan’s B teams? He did pretty well at both considering his goals to games, he was unlucky at Real with all the Galacticos signing and Italy was never right for his style

  2. Please make this be true!!!!! Huntleaar already knows van der Vaart and Piennar from Ajax and thats where he scored so many goals!!!! Get him and Benzema ans who knows- next year we could win the league- If we had them strikers this season we probably would be in second place!!!
