Tottenham fans would have been pleased to see the club finally snap up a competent back up striker in the summer transfer window in the form of Carlos Vinicius.
The Brazilian has made a promising start to his Tottenham career, opening his account for the club with a brace against Ludogorets last week.
One of the strikers who was reported to be on Spurs’ radar before they snapped up Vinicius on loan from Benfica was Wolfsburg striker, Wout Weghorst (Express).
The Dutch striker admitted after the transfer window closed that Tottenham did hold a serious interest in signing him (Kicker).
According to a report in SportBuzzer (as relayed by Sport Witness), the 28-year-old could leave Wolfsburg when the transfer window opens in January, with Tottenham once again mentioned as a potential destination.
Speaking about Weghorst’s future, Jorg Schmadtke, VfL Wolfsburg’s Managing Director 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!”
The report also adds that it may take an offer of over €30m to persuade the Bundesliga club to sell the striker in January.
