The 28-year-old scored his eleventh goal of the season against Leipzig and is third in the Bundesliga scorers’ list behind Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) and Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund). In the summer, Weghorst had been linked with several English clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur.
The Wolfsburg sports director Jörg Schmadtke has no doubts about the whereabouts of his best striker. “He still has a contract,” said the 56-year-old on Saturday evening in the ZDF’s “Current Sports Studio” about Weghorst. He gets inquiries about a possible change “only from journalists, not from other clubs”.
