Dutch attacker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar had trouble scoring at Real Madrid after having been a dynamo for Eredivisie side Ajax, where he averaged over 30 goals a season in three full campaigns.
However, that was the first time he had to deal with major spotlight and he was only given half a season to even try to settle into a completely different league.
AC Milan also only gave him 25 games to try and figure it all out before shipping him out of the fashion capital of Europe.
Schalke 04 proved that if he was given time to settle in, he was worth it, as 35 games in his first season saw 13 goals while this year he has 45 appearances and 43 goals.
The 28-year-old is an obvious talent and with his stock once again peaking, he is on (or should be on) the wish list of a handful of Europe's best sides.
