Wolfsburg managing director Jorg Schmadtke has refused to rule out the January sale of Tottenham target Wout Weghorst.
Weghorst not 100% staying
Spurs were interested in the 28-year-old during the summer, but the Netherlands international ended up staying with the Bundesliga outfit.
As reported by SportBuzzer, Schmadtke says that, while he does not want to sell the striker in the winter, a reasonable offer would mean a discussion would have to be held. He said:
“We hold the reins in our hands. Then we tip the scales and decide whether or not.
“We have always said: If there is a reasonable offer that Wout also considers interesting, then we will sit down and discuss it . That’s how we discussed it when he renewed his contract. But everyone knows that I don’t like doing transfers in winter!”
Should still be on Mourinho’s radar
Mourinho did eventually get his hands on Carlos Vinicius to provide back-up for Harry Kane. Despite that, Weghorst would still be a hugely impressive signing. His record over the past few seasons has been outstanding – he has 46 goals in 92 games for Wolfsburg, including six in nine this term, while he managed 45 in 86 during his time with AZ Alkmaar. No wonder Wolfsburg captain Joshua Guilavogui called him “outstanding”.
Would you like to sign Wout Weghorst?
Throughout his career, he has 137 strikes and has even been compared to Robert Lewandowski. The potential transfer fee is likely to be too steep for Spurs, but if he were to be available at the right price, he is a player they should consider making a move for.
