VfL Wolfsburg would be prepared to let Wout Weghorst go in January if a suitable offer comes along, according to Sport Bild.


The German publication claims the 28-year-old has been priced at around €35-40 million by 'Die Wölfe'.

Weghorst has previously admitted that Tottenham were interested in him in the summer, and the London side could reignite their interest in the striker when the transfer window opens in January, as per Sport Bild.

"I can be honest and say I knew there was interest in me. With Tottenham, it was serious. I was a candidate. Of course, something like that occupies you. It's also a confirmation that I'm on the right track," Weghorst told Kicker in October and added:

"I've always said that in the end, it has to be right for all parties. That wasn't the case. This is why I stayed in Wolfsburg with all my love. At the end of the transfer window, I was glad that it was over. My family is happy to stay in Wolfsburg as well.

"Nevertheless, the Premier League is still a dream for me. Two years ago, I decided to play for VfL instead of West Ham United."


Wolfsburg boss Jörg Schmadtke has said the Bundesliga club 'will have to think about it' if the right offer comes in.

"He'll still be here in the winter. But if we get an offer where profitability exceeds everything, we'll have to think about it," Schmadtke told said in an interview with Kicker in October.

Weghorst has been in excellent form lately, scoring seven goals in his last five Bundesliga appearances. His contract expires in 2023.
