Highlights: Hamburg 3-1 Schalke

Schalke are not expecting a bid from Arsenal for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in January, as they claim the Gunners do not have the money.

Arsenal signed forwards Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski in the summer, with Theo Walcott another attacking option, but they have been linked with a number of strikers - Netherlands international Huntelaar among them.

Reports have suggested Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has a substantial transfer kitty available to him and he has said he is looking for "top, top players". That assertion is at odds with the information Schakle have at their disposal.

"There have been no offers or any sign of Klaas-Jan leaving," Schalke general manager Horst Heldt is quoted as saying in the Sun.

"If someone comes to us six months before the expiry date, and has a lot of money, we will deal with it.

"But from Arsenal circles we hear there is no money anyway."
