VfL Wolfsburg's Wout Weghorst has commented on speculation surrounding his future amid reported interest from Tottenham.
According to reports from The Athletic and De Telegraaf, Weghorst has attracted interest from the Premier League side.
But speaking after Wolfsburg's 0-0 draw with Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday, the Dutch striker insisted there is nothing concrete in this regard.
"There is always a lot going on in the newspapers. If a club really came knocking, I would hear about it myself. Today, based on what I know now, this is not an issue at all," Weghorst told Sportschau, according to Ligainsider.
Wolfsburg sporting director Marcel Schäfer also denied that Tottenham have made an approach for the 28-year-old.
"I don't know anything about that. They have been writing this for months," Schäfer said.
"In Tottenham's last game, Son scored four times and Kane also got on the scoresheet, so I think we should just keep Wout here," he added with a smile, referring to Tottenham's 5-2 win over Southampton on Sunday.
A few months ago, Weghorst told Sport Bild that he has an agreement in place with Wolfsburg that they will sit down together if an 'exciting' offer comes in for him.
"I have ambitions and want to play at the highest possible level. In the past two years, I have shown that I can perform on this level and that more is possible for me," the striker said.
"We have agreed that we will sit down together if something exciting comes up."
Weghorst's contract with Wolfsburg expires in 2023. He has netted 40 times in 82 games for 'Die Wölfe.
