West Ham have been named among a host of clubs interested in signing VfL Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst this summer. 

Credited alongside fellow Premier League outfits Newcastle United and Tottenham as keen parties, the Hammers could make an attempt to land the 28-year-old as their new recognised frontman. 

David Moyes will be desperate to add a number nine to the ranks ahead of the 2021/22 campaign having allowed Sebastien Haller to leave in January. 

According to a report from The Athletic, as cited by Bundesliga France on Twitter, Weghorst could be a viable option. 

The mooted €30million (£25.8million) fee falls almost directly in line with the six-cap international’s perceived £27million market value

Weghorst has established himself as a proven goalscorer in both Holland and Germany – including a fabulous 25 goal return in 2020/21. 

Described as ‘dangerous’ by Wolfsburg boss Olivier Glasner, the 6’4 striker is unsurprisingly blessed with strong aerial and finishing ability.
