Klaas-Jan Huntelaar's agent has rejected suggestions that any deal has been agreed for the striker to either stay or move away from Schalke in the transfer window, with Liverpool and Arsenal continuing to be connected to the star.

Huntelaar has been on fire in the Bundesliga this season, scoring seven times in 17 appearances so far, and having a huge hand in their Champions League push which saw them stay undefeated to the Gunners both times in the group stages.

Arsenal and Liverpool are both rumoured to be keeping tabs on Huntelaar, who had lacklustre spells at Real Madrid in 2009 and Inter Milan in 2009-2010 before moving to Germany and re-finding his form.

And both clubs will be boosted by the knowledge his agent Arnoldus Oosterveer insists he hasn't agreed to go anywhere just yet, with his deal at Schalke running out in just over 18 months.

"There is no agreement with any English club and Klaas has not yet decided anything about his future," Oosterveer told calciomercato.it.

"He has not decided if he wants to play in Italy, Spain, England or stay in Germany. He is planning his future in the winter."

A new contract with Schalke is still a possibility, Oosterveer insisted, saying: "Currently no hypothesis is rejected because in football you never know.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has starred for Schalke, and could be on the move in January.

"So you [will] have to wait to know Huntelaar's future."

Liverpool have made their intentions to purchase a striker in January clear, with Luis Suarez having to take a lot of the pressure as they struggle in front of the net.

The side let Andy Carroll go on loan on deadline day in the summer transfer window without a concrete replacement, and as a result Brendan Rodgers has had to make do with a squad he is not entirely satisfied with the depth of.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are looking at the possibility of losing a few of their forwards, with Marouane Chamakh connected to an exit as he seeks more game time, while Theo Walcott continues to stall contract talks in the final year of his deal.

The Gunners have been without a cutting edge since Robin van Persie left the club, though Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud have both settled into the Emirates, and any purchase of a new striker in January or the summer will depend on how the pair go with their form.

Juventus are also said to be interested, and as his top-class form continues, there will no doubt be high competition for his signature as his deal continues to wind down.
