The 27-year-old has particularly come into his own since his move to Wolfsburg in 2018and has impressed with his hold up play and clinical finishing.

Weghorst has resumed from where he left off since the return of the German top flight.

The latest three goals have taken his tally to 18 and 5 assists in all competitions so far this campaign (
