Tottenham Hotspur eyeing January swoop for Wout Weghorst

According to a report from Sport BILD via Sport Witness (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur are considering a January move for VfL Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst after passing up on signing him in the summer.

The 28-year-old came through the youth ranks at Dutch club DETO. He had spells at Willem II, FC Emmen, Heracles Almelo before he joined AZ Alkmaar in 2016. In 86 appearances for the club over two years, he scored 45 goals, before signing for Wolfsburg in 2018.

Since joining the Bundesliga outfit, Weghorst has continued to score at an impressive rate. Last season saw Weghorst bag an impressive 20 goals in 43 appearances across all competitions while setting up five more.

And, he has been able to continue in the same vein of form in the ongoing campaign, having already netted eleven goals in 15 matches, while setting up another.

Tottenham had been credited with an interest in Weghorst back in the summer as the club was in the market for a new striker. However, no move materialised as we ended up signing Carlos Vinicius on a season-long loan from SL Benfica. (h/t Football.london)

But, it is now being claimed that Tottenham remain interested in the Bundesliga ace and are lining up a January swoop. The report further adds that Wolfsburg have an agreement with the striker to let him leave in the winter window, provided an offer of around €35-€40m comes along.

Vinicius has made a rather slow start to the season. Given the number of matches we’ll be playing, adding another centre-forward like Weghorst makes a lot of sense. However, it is unlikely that the club would be prepared to shell out €35-€40m in the January window.
