Arsène Wenger says Klaas Jan Huntelaar is “not on his radar”.

The Arsenal manager is known to be on the hunt for a striker during the January window and has been linked with the Dutch international in the media over the past few weeks.

The 26-year-old is currently on loan at Milan after an indifferent spell with Real Madrid. But speaking exclusively to Arsenal TV Online on New Year’s Day, Wenger discounted the possibility of bringing in Huntelaar and suggested that transfer regulations may close the door anyway.

“No [I am not in for him],” said the manager. “I am surprised he never plays but he is not on our radar.

"[Anyway] I don't believe that this kind of player can move. I am not sure [he] can move again in this transfer period because he has moved already once this season."
