According to a report by the Daily Express, Tottenham Hotspur are one of the sides interested in towering Dutch striker Wout Weghorst – with Wolfsburg managing director Jörg Schmadtke now confirming they are open to selling for the right offer.
The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing new forward?
The Lilywhites’ first and foremost priority appears to be at centre-half this summer with new manager Nuno Espirito Santo aiming to oversee a defensive revamp (football.london).
However, Tottenham will still need to sign a new striker and provide sufficient back up for Harry Kane.
The Latest: Tottenham want Weghorst…
Writing for the Daily Express, journalist Ryan Taylor has detailed Tottenham’s interest in monster 6 foot 5 striker Weghorst this summer.
Indeed, Spurs are apparently among the sides interested in a move for the Netherlands international – coming after he was allegedly close to a Premier League move before the pandemic.
Wolfsburg director Schmadtke, speaking to Kicker via this report, has confirmed that the Bundesliga giants are open to selling their player if they receive an offer which ‘satisfies all sides’.
The Verdict: Do it…
Weghorst notched an impressive 25 goals in all competitions over 20/21 for Wolfsburg (Transfermarkt) and his physical attributes certainly set him aside from other targets.
Teammate Admir Mehmedi also branded the 28-year-old as ‘so crazy’ with a ‘really strong mentality’ (Bundesliga) – which points to an ideal frontman who could potentially challenge or replace Kane next season.
Valued at £27 million by Transfermarkt, we believe a figure around this amount would be a suitable price to pay.
