Newcastle United: Magpies interested in Wout Weghorst -Newcastle United Transfer Rumours

Newcastle United are reportedly now interested in signing Wout Weghorst in the January transfer window.

The Lowdown: Underrated?

Weghorst may not be a name that jumps out immediately on paper, but he seems to be one of the most underrated strikers in European football, at least according to the Bundesliga website.

Former Wolsfburg manager Oliver Glasner even went as far as to claim that Weghorst is ‘the most dangerous player in front of goal’ that he has ever coached, while fellow Dutch player Michel Vlap has credited him as having an ‘unbelievable drive’.

Should Newcastle sign Weghorst?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Nonetheless, his goal record speaks for itself, with a total of 164 goals scored for both club and country at youth and senior level combined, and at 29 years of age, is now at the peak of his powers.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

As per Kicker, the St. James’ Park faithful are now interested in signing Weghorst next month.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will know who all these players signed from! First up, Joelinton...

The news outlet are predicting that he will have ‘an offer on the table in the next few weeks’, and that could be from the North East club, while he is not expected to stay beyond the summer at least.

The Verdict: Get it done

With a monster six-foot-six frame, Weghorst would be a threat for any team in the Premier League, due to his aerial threat in both boxes, emphasised by the 2.4 aerial duels that he wins per game in the Bundesliga, the joint-fourth most out of any of his teammates, and up there with the central defenders at the club (WhoScored).

The Netherlands international would certainly offer an exciting alternative to Callum Wilson, whose six goals in total over all competitions so far this season are by far the most out of any Magpies player, and so Weghorst would help ease the burden off of him, given his goalscoring record.

Nonetheless, while their defence may be leaky, ultimately goals win football matches, and Weghorst would certainly provide them.
