AC Milan show interest in Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

The Serie A side are looking for some new faces in attack and the Dutch international's name is back on their list...
Milan have lost five consecutive pre-season matches and alarm bells are ringing around the club's headquarters at Via Turati, as coach Leonardo believes he requires a larger squad to compete for trophies. The club have done little to reinforce themselves after selling talisman Kaka to Real Madrid for €65 million and after a number of failed attempts for strikers will turn their attention back to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, according to the the Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Dutch hitman is now surplus to requirements at the White House after their historic spending spree this summer and Milan are hoping they can prise him away from the Santiago Bernabeu. The Rossoneri attempted that feat earlier this summer, wanting to take the former Ajax star on-loan, but Real Madrid president Florentino Perez wants to sell the player outright in order to recoup part of the €27 million spent on the player last winter. The 25-year-old reportedly rejected a move to Stuttgart and is now also linked with Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Liverpool.
