The 29-year-old has been linked with a string of Premier League clubs, incuding Spurs and Newcastle, and is believed to be keen on trying his luck in the top flight in England.

Weghorst, 6ft 6ins, who made his senior international debut against England in 2018 in Amsterdam, scored 25 goals in 41 games in all competitions last season for Wolfsburg, and has seven in 24 appearances so far this term.

He has hit double figures in every season, be it in his homeland in the Eredivisie, or in the Bundesliga, since 2014-15 with Heracles Almelo, when he finished with eight.
