Striker who claims Spurs were interested in him last summer says he wants ‘top transfer’

Wolfsburg striker, Wout Weghorst has admitted that he still harbours dreams of playing in the Premier League and once again confirmed that Tottenham showed concrete interest in snapping him up during the summer transfer window.

Weghorst was one of the strikers Tottenham were reportedly looking at as a potential back up to Harry Kane (Express), with the club eventually snapping up Carlos Vinicius on a season-long loan deal from Benfica.

Weghorst has previously admitted that Spurs’ interest towards the end of the summer transfer window had turned his head.

Jose Mourinho’s men have been backed to return for the Dutch international’s services this month (Christian Falk), while other strikers like Diego Costa and Arkadiusz Milik have also been mentioned as potential targets for the North Londoners.

Weghorst has now once again spoken about Tottenham’s interest and while the 28-year-old insisted that he is happy at Wolfsburg, he made no secret of his desire to make an eventual step up in his career.

The striker told Voetbal International (as relayed by Sport Witness): “It is up to me to decide how far I want to go along.

“But the appreciation that is expressed gives a nice feeling. I sincerely appreciate where I am and what I have now.

“But I also have ambitions. A top transfer remains the clear goal. But then I really have to improve compared to Wolfsburg.

“That (Tottenham) was concrete indeed. But in the end, there was no action. The Premier League seems like a great competition. When that failed, I set myself new goals.

“You never stop learning, and I will certainly continue to work on myself. But I notice that as a striker I am getting closer to the ultimate version of myself.”

Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that so many strikers are being linked with us might suggest that Jose Mourinho is not entirely convinced by what he has seen from Carlos Vinicius. However, I do not think we are likely to move for a striker this month as additions in central midfield and centre-back are arguably bigger priorities.
