Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has shown just how effective he can be, now only for the Netherlands but also his club side Schalke.
The Dutch international missed most of the first half of last season but returned after the winter break to maintain his excellent form in front of goal. Thinking of the many chances Liverpool can create next season, a poacher like Huntelaar is just what they need.
He may not fit in with the club’s apparent policy of buying young, currently being 30. But there are few strikers in Europe better than Huntelaar in front of goal.
