Wolfsburg’s Managing Director of Sport, Jorg Schmadtke, has admitted that rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Wout Weghorst could leave the club this summer.

Weghorst was linked with a move to Spurs last summer but the North London club decided to sign Benfica’s Carlos Vinicius on a season-long loan deal instead.

The Netherlands international demonstrated his quality again last season after his move to Tottenham fell through, finishing the campaign with 25 goals and 9 assists in all competitions.

The Athletic reported last month that Spurs could reignite their interest in Weghorst this summer as they look to secure a potential replacement for Harry Kane.

The report also asserted that West Ham could challenge Spurs for the striker, who was valued by Wolfsburg at €30m (£25.8m).

Schmadtke has now admitted that the Bundesliga club will cash in on the 28-year-old this summer if their valuation is met.

When asked about Weghorst’s future, the Wolfsburg director told Kicker: “If an offer comes that satisfies all sides, then things change.” 

Spurs Web Opinion 

I believe that Weghorst would be an excellent backup to Kane and could be used as a direct option from the bench if we are chasing a game. However, I am not convinced that he is good enough to be our main number nine if we lose Kane.

As we have seen with the likes of Timo Werner and Sebastian Haller, being prolific in the Bundesliga does not necessarily translate to success in the Premier League.
