Wout Weghorst: Tottenham were serious about me…

Wout Weghorst has revealed that Tottenham had a serious interest in signing him during the transfer window.

Speaking to Kicker, the Wolfsburg forward confirmed reports that Jose Mourinho was keen to land him.

Only Robert Lewandowski and Timo Werner have scored more Bundesliga goals than Weghorst in the past two seasons.

And his form has led to significant interest from the Premier League, most recently from Spurs.

“I can be honest,” Weghorst told Kicker. “Of course I knew there was interest left and right. It was serious with Tottenham, I was a candidate [to join].”

The Dutch international admitted he had considered a move to Mourinho’s side, but is happy at Wolfsburg… for now.

“I’m 28 now and I’d like to win titles. I made that clear here. And I hope we can improve as a team so that we can possibly do more.

“If one day I have the feeling that I cannot achieve my goals at VfL, then I will say so. That is currently not the case.”

And English teams will have taken notice of Weghorst’s final comment.

“The Premier League is still a dream of mine.”
