Chelsea closing the net on Ajax's £18m-rated Klaas act Huntelaar

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/arti...ge_id=1779&ct=5

So it's only a newspaper (and The Mail at that) rumour with no real evidence... but I remember Star stating earlier in the season that he was a certain capture.

Would be a very good signing I think, especially as I can see 3 out of our 4 strikers leaving in the Summer.

Huntelaar, Anelka, Di Santo and Sahar next season? icon_wink.gif Well... I guess not.

A lot of people seem to be really excited about him, which is fine but im not going to hold my breath.

After all we have been here before haven't we - a player from the Dutch league with a fantastic scoring record!

Yes we have, but just because Kezman was a flop, it doesn't mean every player from the Dutch league will be a flop when they move to a bigger league. Nistelrooy is a good example of that as he moved to the Premiership, but I could also mention Ronaldo and Romario as they did "pretty well" in bigger leagues... icon_wink.gif

One of the most overrated players on the planet! actions1.gif

I've heard people praising him, but nothing over the top so far. Is it because it's Eredivisie, or why is it that you think a player that has scored 32 goals in 36 matches(in all competitions this season) doesn't deserve to be praised? Ofcourse stats aren't everything, but I'd still be interested to hear some more detailed opinions about why you think he's so massively overrated. He's a striker and he's scoring for fun for both club and country, so I think at least some of the praise he's getting is well justified.

I was in a bit of a rush earlier or I would have wrote more icon_lol.gif By all means praise him, but the amount of praise he recieves, like he is an amazing talent and who is worthy of a first team slot at a club like ours (I rate us as one of the top clubs in europe), as if he is going to push us forward or even replace Drogba? 300.gif He is a good player but no more than that, I do not watch him every week but I do see about two Ajax games a month and what I see is a good player in an average league. Many harp on about his goal scoring record but I ask you to look at Afonso Alves, his record is far better and he isn't exactly setting the world alight is he? I'm not saying that everyone from the Eredivisie who scores goals should be discounted as a good player and put it down to the league I'm saying to put to much emphisis on his scoring record. His all round play is not the best, he is a good finisher with a good scoring instinct, good off the ball and can poach goals. He is not fast nor really strong, average in the air. He gets alot of credit for his work rate but that to me is not a skill, something to be admired yes but that doesnt make a world class player that he is being billed as being. He is hard working and scores goals, a good player, not this great player that I keep hearing about. I am not against him coming to Chelsea as I believe he could do a good job, nothing brilliant though and I think there are lots of better options out there. All this is of course my opinion only icon_lol.gif

Good work , good poacher, great positioni off hte ball, but not the best skill!!! Sounds like a certain Didier!

I think that he will be a "Klaas" signing! He has the work rate of Essien, is a good target man, so could play well in a 4-4-3, or as a partner in a 4-4-2. I think a RVN at Chelsea would be welcome, don't you?

+he's young. Really interesting player and would welcome him with open arms. I'm not waiting him to score hat full of goals the first season but I'm sure he would make an impact on the first season. If we lose Sheva along with Drogba we need someone else as well(along with Huntelaar) since Anelka, Pizarro and Kalou just isn't a threat to defenses.

I should hope he could play well in a 4-4-3 but I'm not sure we'd keep a clean sheet without a goalkeeper unless of course we're allowed to play with 12 players! icon_lol.gif

I must admit that Huntelaar is very, very tempting to be seen in a Chelsea shirt. Somebody may predict the future and regard him as a striker that brings hope and fun on the field by scoring many goals, scoring in a clear, simple manner. Is there really a big company of clubs waiting to sign him? I don't think manc want to get him, as they already have Rooney and Tevez. And I don't think we will need him until we figure out what to do with our dissapointing army of strikers. Or maybe our club has a plan concerning that? I doubt it. From the side we look quite lost about managing our squad to perform at it's best by having every single player to learn his task.

In short: you never know with a player from the Eredivisie.

  • 1 month later...

two miniscule quotes from an Agent....wouldn't be too worried about it. I really hope we land him, Man U have too many strikers as is, and we will need at least one or two more this season if all or some of Pizarro, Sheva and Drogba all leave

Now a rumour going around that Liverpool have agreed a £19m fee for Huntelaar.

Come on Roman. Get your cheque book out for Huntelaar before it is too late...

We do not want him going to either the Mancs or Scousers...
