Wolfsburg sporting director Marcel Schäfer has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur have not made contact over a move for Wout Weghorst.

Jose Mourinho has openly admitted that he is in the market to sign a new forward during the current transfer window (Evening Standard).

Dutch news outlet De Telegraaf claimed earlier this week that Tottenham were lining up a move for the 28-year-old striker to act as a back up for Harry Kane.

Weghorst is under contract at the German outfit until 2023 and has scored 33 goals in 66 games in the past two Bundesliga seasons (transfermarkt).

Schäfer insists that there has been no approach from Jose Mourinho’s side for the 6ft 5in forward while also claiming that Spurs have no requirement to add Weghorst to their squad given the fact that they have taken Gareth Bale on loan from Real Madrid coupled with the impressive finishing they displayed in the 5-2 demolition of Southampton on Sunday.

“Wout Weghorst has been speculating in the media for weeks, months. Nobody has contacted us yet,” Schäfer told Sport 1.

“If you look at the last Tottenham game in the Premier League you can see that they have fewer problems on the attack.

“Now they also signed Gareth Bale. There is more of a problem over who is allowed to play. They don’t need Wout.”
