Premier League sides West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a move for Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst, as per the latest reports.

The two London sides are looking for attacking reinforcements this summer transfer window and both of them are likely to make a move for the 28-year-old in the coming months.

The Boot Room cites The Athletic saying: “Tottenham and West Ham will need to pay £25 million to land Wout Weghorst this summer, according to The Athletic. 

“Both clubs held preliminary talks last year and the London rivals could go head-to-head for his signature this summer.”

Is Wout Weghorst coming to the Premier League?

Wout Weghorst joined Wolves from AZ Alkmaar in 2018 for a fee of around 9.45 million pounds and he has two more years left on his current deal with the German side. During the 2020-21 season, the centre-forward has scored 20 goals in 34 Bundesliga games also providing nine assists.

This is not the first time West Ham United are being linked with the Wolfsburg man and according to one of the more reliable sources, the Hammers are not likely to land the striker this summer either.

ExWHUemployee said, as reported: “We’ve been linked with Wout Weghorst. I’ve linked him to us before and I know we’ve had interest in him.

“I can’t see us signing him, although I know we have watched him in the past.”

Spurs are at the risk of losing Harry Kane maybe that is why they are being linked with so many strikers right now. But there’s no way the 28-year-old will be able to fill the void if Kane moves to a rival club this summer.

At £25 million, Weghorst is surely a very cheap option for both the London-based clubs and since West Ham United will be playing in the Europa League next season, Moyes might just be able to land him if he tried hard enough.

As far as Tottenham are concerned, they will only sign a striker if Harry Kane is on the move this summer and if Kane is leaving then Levy will use the transfer money from his sale to bring in a world-class replacement and not Wout Weghorst, a striker who is valued at just £25m.
