Galatasaray welcome group B winners Schalke in the Champions League round of 16 tie. The Turkish side will be looking to gain an advantage for the return trip to Germany where Schalke have proved to be formidable opposition of late.
Arsene Wenger has had two great opportunities to watch Arsenal transfer target Lewis Holtby recently. The versatile Schalke midfielder can also play on the flanks or as a support to the striker, and he impressed Wenger during the recent Champions league matches enough to earn himself a move to the Emirates, apparently.
AC Milan could rival Liverpool for the signature of prolific Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, reports talkSPORT. The 29-year-old - who spent a season at the San Siro before moving to the Bundesliga in 2010 - has been linked with a host of top European clubs, as he continues his scintillating scoring form.

TalkSPORT is reporting that Milan, Chelsea, and Liverpool will all inquire about the services of Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. Given how well Schalke have played this season- they currently sit 2nd in the Bundesliga behind the indomitable Bayern Munich, a move for their star striker likely wouldn't materialize until the summer as Schalke would want to make a title run and Huntelaar would be instrumental in their potential success.
It was a depressing watch, we never really looked the better side and we could have gone behind on severaloccasionsbefore Huntelaar finally broke the deadlock. There was no lack of effort from the players on the field though, it was simply that this team was not good enough and that the manager had notset-upthe players as effectively as he might have done.
Wenger needs to move with modern football by N21 Gooner
With no disrespect to Diame at all, I think he is talented and hard working, but this policy of trying to find underpriced talent must stop. I think its a fundamental problem for us right now, it seems to go unchallenged at the club and so we are speculating with almost every signing, hoping that we have discovered something that no one else has but at a fraction of the price.
Arsene Wenger is expected to bring some significant new players in to the Arsenal side during the transfer window this month. There are some key positions that need improving and covering in case of injury, and Ivan Gazidis has indicated that the Arsenal board will back Wenger to spend some decent money, although the amount is debatable.
Arsenal are believed to be the favourites to be the next club of Lewis Holtby. The midfielder, who plays for the German Bundesliga side Schalke, has decided not to sign a new contract and could leave on a free transfer in the summer. Liverpool are also very keen on the 22-year old, but his English father is an Everton fan, and Holtby has said that he would be reluctant to join their rivals.
Why I'm certain that Wenger will get a striker from Spain in January by KJ
There's been a lot of talk about Wenger buying a striker in January as Arsenal clearly need one. However, one of our targets Klaas Jan Huntelaar has signed a 2 year contract extension at Schalke 04. In my opinion, that's brilliant news for Arsenal as he's not close to being a striker good enough for Arsenal.
Not long ago it was thought to be a done deal and Arsenal would soon have a new Dutch striker by the name of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, but there have been a few changes at his club Schalke recently, and the 29-year old front man has been persuaded to sign a new contract that will keep him at the Bundesliga club until 2015.
It's no secret that Arsenal are in desperate need for a striker. Giroud by all accounts has struggled to adapt and his goal scoring form is non-existent. There have been vague rumours that Arsenal are interested in the likes of Huntelaar and Ba.
There is no chance of Arsenal meeting the German side Schalke in the next round of the Champions league, the draw for which is made tomorrow, as they were in the same group stage. The team from Gelsenkirchen could still have an effect on the rest of the season for the Gunners, however.
Despite topping their European group, the manager of Schalke, Huub Stevens, has been sacked from his job and replaced him with Jens Keller.
It is being reported today that Arsenal are no longer favourites to land the Dutch international striker, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, from Schalke when the transfer window opens in January. The 29-year old has apparently heard about interest from the Serie A club Inter Milan, and would love another chance to prove himself in Italy, according to his agent Arnold Oosterveer.
Arsenal fans can stop getting excited about the Dutch international striker, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, coming to the rescue in January, according to the general manager of his current club Schalke 04. The German team have failed to persuade the striker to sign a new deal and his contract finishes next summer.
It looks like Arsenal will have a choice of two strikers to buy in January, as Newcastle United are resigned to selling their 27-year old Senegalese striker Demba Ba when the January transfer window opens. The North East club and their owner, Mike Ashley, have failed to agree terms with Ba over a new contract, so are ready to move him on as soon as possible so they can get a replacement settled in.
If the reports about Arsenal and the acquistion of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Schalke for only around £4 million when the transfer window opens in January are true, it will be the bargain of the season, comparable to Swansea getting Michu in the summer for around £2 million. The Spaniard was not that well known outside of Spain, but Huntelaar is an experienced international with 59 caps to his name, so it would be even more remarkable.
There have been oodles of Arsenal transfer rumours linking strikers for a move to Emirates in January, and according to the French Sports paper L'Equipe it will be Schalke's Klaas-Jan Huntelaar who will be moving to the Emirates for a fee of around 5 million euros, which is a bargain in anyone's eyes!
Arsene Wenger is constantly asked about who, if anyone, Arsenal will be signing to strengthen the team when the January transfer window opens on January 1st. For the last two games he has given pretty much the same answer, that he does not want to react after a defeat, it is better to think carefully.
Arsene Wenger has suggested that he will be allowed to spend some money in January, which is great news for Arsenal fans, as long as we get the right players. There are a number of positions that need strengthening and the number seems to be growing every week at the minute, but that is because the team as a whole is struggling.
A Busy January Transfer Window On The Cards? by AH
Rumours are nothing to go by and Arsenal are linked with what seems to be every single player in the professional game each year, however there are the rumours that stand out and seem to have some truth. These are the rumours that are both realistic targets for Arsenal and the figures such as fees and wages that those players bring with them and in my opinion there have been 4 stand out players that I could genuinely see Arsenal being interested in this January.
Horst Heldt is the general manager of the German club Schalke, who look like beating Arsenal to top spot in the Champions league group. As group rivals, it is strange that Heldt should know all the ins and outs of the financial situation, but that is what he is suggesting, after claiming that the Arsenal transfer target Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will not be joining the Gunners because we have no money.
The two top Dutch strikers of this era has been Robin Van Persie and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, but although the ex-Arsenal hitman has made more appearances for his country, it is Huntelaar that is by far the most consistent goalscorer both for his country and in domestic football.
For this reason many Arsenal fans think that Huntelaar could be an even better replacement for the traitor Van Persie, and as he will be available for just a measly £6million in January it would seem sheer stupidity not to snap him up for the last few years of his career.
Arsenal are finally getting money in from the big sponsorship deals but will they spend it? by KJ
Arsenal have announced today that they have agreed a deal with Emirates to a 5 year sponsorship that is worth £150 million. To those not very good at Math, that's £30 million a year until 2019 – the biggest shirt sponsorship deal currently in world football.
Shcalke 04 striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar could be on his way to Arsenal in January if things go the North London club's way. Multiple media outlets including ESPN are reporting that the Dutch international could be set to swap the German Bundesliga for the English Premier League.
Out of contract in the summer, Huntelaar would provide more firepower for an Arsenal team that has been inconsistent in domestic competition this year.
Rumours are starting to pick up in regards to Arsenal buying a striker in the January transfer window. We have been linked to the likes of Fernando Llorente, Adrian Lopez and now Huntelaar. This news comes from Raphael Honigstein (one of the first to reveal the Podolski deal) who believes Huntelaar is off in January and Arsenal are firm favourites.
Arsene Wenger must surely add to the Arsenal squad when the transfer window opens in the new year. Even though Olivier Giroud is finding his feet, and the back of the net, in the English Premier league, another striker would not go amiss. Alot may depend on the outcome of the ongoing contract discussions between the Gunners and Theo Walcott, but an injury would leave Arsenal in serious peril, and so another quality striker should be coming to the Emirates.
Arsenal reportedly wish to bring another attacking player to the Emirates this January, with our main targets being Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente, Schalke striker Klass Jan Huntelaar, Bayer Leverkusen player André Schürrle and Manchester City's Edin Dzeko.
Coming off a disappointing loss at Old Trafford at the weekend, Arsenal will look to change their fortune as they visit Germany on Tuesday to face Schalke 04 in a crucial Champions League clash. While the Gunners currently sit 2nd in Group B with 6 points, Schalke 04 enjoys a spot atop the group. The two sides met not two weeks ago when the visiting Germans blanked the Gunner at the Emirates 2-0, marking the first time since 2003 that Arsenal conceded a home loss to a foreign visitor.
I'm sure you'll all be familiar even those who did not read my match preview with the statistics flying around before yesterday's game. Needless to say, Schalke ended a very strong run of form in Champions League home games for Arsenal. As for actual, more immediate form, Arsenal looked much the same as they did at Norwich: slow and unimaginitive.
So by now we all know that Arsenal lost 0-2 to Schalke at home on Wednesday, a game that many Arsenal fans were worried about considering the 0-1 loss at the weekend to bottom of the table Norwich in the Premier League. With a couple of injuries and a far from full strength squad at his disposal, Arsene Wenger put together a team that many would say looked just okay on paper to face the Germans.

Wenger brought Francis Coquelin in to the Arsenal midfield and moved Ramsey to the right. Gervinho got the chance to reprise his central striker role while Giroud was on the bench. Gervinho tended to drift out wide at the start which was fairly tentative.
In the 10th minute, Cazorla and Podolski combined well on the left and the German put in the sort of cross that Giroud would love but Gervinho could not get it on target.
After a disappointing defeat to Norwich City, Arsenal would be expected to respond tomorrow evening with the visit of Schalke to the Emirates Stadium. In recent seasons Champions League home games have proved largely comfortable for the Gunners, especially in the group stages.
The last time Arsenal lost a home game in the Champions League?
Arsenal face Schalke tomorrow in the champions league, needing a good performance to bounce straight back from the worst performance of the season so far. Our German striker will not let his Arsenal team mates be complacent as he knows that Schalke will provide a stern test for the Gunners.
Podolski has declared that Schalke will be an extremely tough team to play on their home ground and so it is absolutely vital that Arsenal get all three points at the Emirates tomorrow.
When Robin Van Persie left the Emirates in the summer, many Arsenal fans thought that his Dutch compatriot Klaas-Jan Huntelaar would have been the perfect replacement in the Arsenal forward line. Instead Arsenal brought in Olivier Giroud but it has become increasingly clear that Arsenal cannot cope with with just one out-and-out centre-forward in the team.
Per Mertesacker will line up for Arsenal on Wednesday against an opponent he knows well after appearing in 220 games in the German Bundesliga with Werder Bremen and Hannover. The tall defender has revealed that he has had to adapt his game to the rigours of the English game which is tougher than the Bundesliga.
It's strange, in a sort of good way, how a song can remind you of someone, their image instantly etched into your mind."The Saints Are Coming" (Green Day/U2 version), is one example, the goal music atDe Grolsch Veste – home of FC Twente – now forever associated with Luuk de Jong, largely responsible for many of its airing last season, now plying his trade in Germany he's hoping for a similar amount of encore performances.
