The Holland international is out of favour at the San Siro but in need of games with the World Cup looming in the summer.

"I don't talk about players at other clubs, but if Huntelaar was available I would be interested, certainly," said Moyes. "I think we are lacking firepower at this present time. We're creating plenty of chances but we're not finishing games off like I think we should be."

Huntelaar's agent Arnold Oosterveer confirmed there was interest from the Barclays Premier League.

"It is right that there are several English clubs interested in the player," he said. "But for the respect of the club I don't want to mention any names. Klaas-Jan wants to have playing time. He wants to go to the World Cup and wants to be involved."

Merseyside rivals Liverpool have already been linked with a swap deal for the player involving wantaway forward Ryan Babel, while Tottenham and West Ham are also believed to be interested.
