Exclusive: Dean Windass tips Newcastle to sign Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst - Newcastle United News

Newcastle have a long history with the number nine shirt, and Dean Windass believes that Dutch striker Wout Weghorst could be the latest to join a list of famous names this summer.

Weghorst is currently starring for the Netherlands at the European Championships but has made his name by scoring goal after goal for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.

Should Newcastle sign Giroud?

Yes

No

The 25 he managed in all competitions last term took his tally to 63 goals in just three seasons following his move from AZ Alkmaar in 2018.

Weghorst has continued his form on the international stage, marking his competitive debut for Holland by netting in their 3-2 victory over Ukraine in their European Championships opener earlier this month.

And 12 months after Newcastle failed in their attempts to bring the 28-year-old goal machine to St James’ Park, Windass has urged Steve Bruce to try his luck once again.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this 2020/21 season quiz! First up, who made the most appearances?

Newcastle still have the likes of Andy Carroll, record signing Joelington and Dwight Gayle on their books, but those three scored just eight times combined last season.

And if the Magpies want to avoid another relegation scrap in 2021-2022, then another goalscorer to help the workload on Callum Wilson could be key.

Windass told The Transfer Tavern:

“He’s a big lad. Steve likes a big number nine; he always has done. I just think that Steve needs a big, fit number nine, Joelinton has struggled with the price-tag.

“Anyone who fills the number nine shirt is up against it with Alan. But he is a threat and Steve likes that, that’s his type of player. Every manager in the world will be looking for players, and Steve will be very interested.”
