Moyes confirms interest in Huntelaar

BY foxsports • January 25, 2010

Everton manager David Moyes has confirmed his interest in luring out-of-favour AC Milan striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to Goodison Park.

Huntelaar has slipped down the pecking order at the San Siro and is in search of regular football ahead of the World Cup this summer.

He only joined Milan in the summer after a brief and frustrating spell with Real Madrid but the former Ajax forward could now be on the move again with a number of clubs keeping tabs on his situation in Italy.

And Moyes, who recently ended Jo's loan spell from Manchester City, has confirmed he is keen to improve Everton's goalscoring record.

"I don't talk about players at other clubs, but if Huntelaar was available I would be interested, certainly," the Scot admitted.

"I think we are lacking firepower at this present time. We're creating plenty of chances but we're not finishing games off like I think we should be."

Huntelaar's agent Arnold Oosterveer confirmed over the weekend there was interest from England, with Liverpool, Tottenham and West Ham also mooted to be suitors.

He said: "Klaas-Jan wants to have playing time. He wants to go to the World Cup and wants to be involved."
