According to Sport Bild’s head of football Christian Falk, Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst has been promised a move to Tottenham Hotspur in January if Jose Mourinho’s side meet the German club’s asking price.
Weghorst was one of the strikers said to be on Tottenham’s radar in the summer transfer window with the club having looked to sign a back up for Harry Kane (Express).
The Dutchman ended remaining at Wolfsburg with the North Londoners making a move for Carlos Vinicius on a season-long loan deal from Benfica instead.
The Wolfsburg man has since admitted that Spurs showed serious interest in signing him during the final days of the transfer window.
Although Vinicius has made a decent impression since arriving at Tottenham, the club have been backed to make another offer for Weghorst in January.
Falk has now revealed on social media that the Dutch striker has been told he can join Spurs as long as the Lilywhites are meet their €35m (£32m) valuation.

Spurs Web Opinion
It seems unlikely that Spurs are going to make a move for a number nine next month given that Vinicius will be at the club until the end of the season. However, there is little chance that Tottenham would take up the option to sing the Brazilian permanently for £41m. So perhaps Spurs could return for Weghorst next summer if he is not snapped up by another club in January.
