Schalke star Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is set to leave the club after several successful seasons.

The striker is reported to be on his way out as he ranks low in the club’s pecking order. The 33-year old ranks below summer January addition Guido Burgstaller and Swiss forward Breel Embolo. The Netherlands international is even placed below former Chelsea striker Franco Di Santo, necessitating a move to get more playing time as his career gradually winds down.

Huntelaar started his professional career in his home country, starting for giants PSV Eindhoven. He spent time on loan at De Graafschap and AGOVV Apeldoorn before he left. He played for SC Heerenveen and Ajax as well before La Liga giants called on him in 2008. His big-money move to Madrid was short-lived as he moved to the Serie A to line up for AC Milan.

He moved to the Bundesliga in 2010 and he has been playing for only Schalke. His over 120 goals in six years is impressive but it is time for him to move on.

The player is likely to agree to a move this summer, according to reports in Germany. No major outfit have declared their interest in the aging player but time will tell.

In Germany as well, FC Koln might lose top scorer Anthony Modeste this summer as well. The 28-year old has 17 league goals, attracting buzzes from numerous quarters.

Several Chinese sides are interested in the player with reports saying they would match the €40 million release clause to sign the former Blackburn star.
