Gunners and United on red alert as £20million striker nears exit !

Man United and Arsenal are supposedly preparing bids for Dutch striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar according to reports in the Daily Mirror today.

The striker has long been linked with a move away from Ajax and United and Arsenal are thought to be the front runners in the hunt for the Dutch international's signature. The 24 year old's exit is looking ever likelier now, as reports today indicate that the number 9 has turned down a new contract at the Eredivise club.

The £18 million rated striker is thought to be more attracted to Old Trafford because of his "love" of the club. However the lure of living in London could also be a factor in the Dutchman's decision.
