Klaas Jan Huntelaar has failed to rule out a potential summer move to Liverpool.

The Netherlands striker has been heavily linked with a switch to the Reds amid reports that controversial forward Luis Suarez is set to join Barcelona.

Huntelaar is currently part of Louis van Gaal’s World Cup squad and scored the Oranje’s winner in a 2-1 victory over Mexico last weekend.

But the 30-year-old, who joined Schalke from Ajax in 2010, is remaining tight-lipped on speculation suggesting that he could seal a switch to Liverpool.

“Regarding the rumours about Liverpool it would only be fair to speak to Schalke first,” Huntelaar told De Telegraaf.

“I’ve talked with Schalke about an extension for a while. After the World Cup I am having a holiday. Then I will speak to them again.

“With my agent, I now do not talk about the interest from clubs. I focus on the tournament.”

Huntelaar scored 12 goals in 18 Bundesliga appearances last season.
