Arsenal did not make an approach to sign Klaas-Jan Huntelaar this summer, Schalke director Horst Heldt has revealed.

The Gunners were linked with a host of strikers during the transfer window after Olivier Giroud was ruled out until the new year with a broken leg, with the Dutchman touted as a possible target for the north London club.

We can definitely see him sign a contract renewal here

However, Schakle chief Heldt has insisted that there were no offers for the 31-year-old forward before the close of the window.

“There was no approach from Arsenal or from any other club,” Heldt is quoted as saying by Kicker.

“Klaas-Jan is part of Schalke’s core. We can definitely see him sign a contract renewal here.

“He is a great player, an absolute modern professional. He’s always hungry for success and wants to achieve his goals.”

Huntelaar scored 12 goals in 18 Bundesliga games for Schalke last season.
