Wout Weghorst opens up on Tottenham Hotspur approach in the summer

In an interview with De Telegraaf via Sport Witness (h/t Football.london), VfL Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst has claimed that Tottenham made a serious approach to sign him in the summer.

The 28-year-old came through the youth ranks at Dutch club DETO and 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, the Dutch forward 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. (h/t Transfermarkt)

“Shortly before the transfer market closed, Tottenham Hotspur got serious. Those were hectic days. You can then say very boldly that you focus on your own club, but subconsciously it does of course do something to you. You also saw it in my game.”

However, a move failed to materialise, with Tottenham instead signing Carlos Vinicius on loan from SL Benfica.

But it has recently been claimed that Jose Mourinho & co. are still monitoring Weghorst and could launch a move in January. It will be interesting to see if anything comes of the said interest next month.
