According to reports, via Football.London, Spurs are still interested in signing Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst alongside massive 2021 swoops for Eduardo Camavinga and Marcelo Brozovic.
Indeed, the report claims that Weghorst, who was allegedly targeted by Spurs in the summer, could now be reattracting Daniel Levy’s attention ahead of next summer.
Should Spurs sign Weghorst next summer?
Yes please, get it done
No, we have Vinicius
Weghorst still on Levy radar
Spurs signed Benfica star Carlos Vinicius on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy, and depending on how his move goes, Tottenham have refused to rule out a future move for Weghorst.
The 6 foot 5 star, who scored an impressive 20 goals in all competitions (Transfermarkt), is apparently valued at around £36.5 million by the Bundesliga giants – with the price tag potentially being a stumbling block for Jose Mourinho and Levy.
However, in a candid interview with German magazine Kicker, Weghorst opened up over his ‘dream’ English move whilst claiming the interest was ‘serious with Tottenham’ – hinting he could desire a switch in future.
Transfer Tavern take
Still on the target list for Spurs, this towering centre-forward could be a very viable option and worth every penny of his £36.5m fee – especially given he fits Mourinho’s mould of an imposing striker who can trouble Premier League defenders.
Ollie Watkins, Habib Diallo and Arkadiusz Milik were said to on Levy’s watchlist over the summer, but Weghorst arguably trumps all of them.
After Fernando Llorente was released in the summer of 2019, Tottenham were left without a back-up striker to Harry Kane for 14 months until signing Vinicius – what’s the harm in bagging two?
