According to a report from SportBild (as relayed by Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur retain an interest in Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst and could make an offer for him when the transfer window reopens next month.

Weghorst was linked with a move to Tottenham in the last transfer window (Express) but the North Londoners ended up signing Carlos Vinicius on a season-long loan deal from Benfica instead.

The Dutch striker later confirmed that the Lilywhites did show serious interest and that he had his head turned by a potential move to Jose Mourinho’s side (Kicker).

Despite the disappointment of a failed move to Spurs in the summer, the Wolfsburg star has started the season in prolific form, having scored 11 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions so far.

SportBild suggest that Spurs are still ‘interested’ in Weghorst ahead of the January transfer window.

The report claims that the striker has an agreement with Wolfsburg that he could leave the club if there is an offer of around €35m-€40m (£32-£36m).

Spurs Web Opinion

Despite snapping up Carlos Vinicius, I would not be surprised if we were looking at someone like Weghorst in January. It is unlikely that we are going to take the £41m option to buy Vinicius permanently at the end of the season unless he really hits unexpected heights in the second half of the season. So far, it does not seem as if Jose has seen enough in training to trust the Brazilian in Premier League games. So being able to sign Weghorst for around £30m looks like a much better deal.
