According to a report from the Daily Express, chairman Daniel Levy has already found his next target after securing deals for both Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon, with Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst now firmly on the agenda as the club continue their search for a back-up striker to Harry Kane.
The Express explain that Wolfsburg are in fact ‘willing’ to let their star forward leave as he dreams of playing in the Premier League, with this news being a potential boost for Spurs as the October 5 deadline nears.
As per this report, Levy remains ‘determined’ to find a new striker who can provide an alternative option to Kane as the 2020/2021 season kicks off.
Tottenham still only have one natural centre-forward option in Kane after suffering from a plethora of dead ends in pursuit of forward options, having missed out on Patson Daka, Andrea Belotti, Alexander Sorloth, Callum Wilson, Ollie Watkins and Arkadiusz Milik.
Should Spurs sign Wout Weghorst?
Yes, absolute colossus
As a result, Weghorst has emerged as a potential top target and Jose Mourinho’s next port of call after securing the sensational double signing of Bale and Reguilon.
While the Bundesliga club appear willing to sell him, they also value his services at around £27 million, but a source close to Wolfsburg has hinted to the Express that they could be willing to sort out a payment plan.
Scoring 16 goals in the German top flight last season and being branded as ‘crazy‘, Weghorst has also drawn comparisons with ex-Premier League ace Edin Dzeko, especially considering he stands at a lofty 6ft 5.
