“If An Offer Comes” Director Puts West Ham and Chelsea On Red Alert As He Opens Door For 26M Rated Target Man To Leave

Wolfsburg sporting director Jorg Schmadtke has confirmed that the Bundesliga side will listen to offers for striker Wout Weghorst.

Reports in recent months have linked the Dutch international with a move to West Ham, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund. It is believed that Wolfsburg have an agreement to sell the player if a team matches their €30m (£26m) price tag and Schmadtke says that they are waiting for a bid that meets their demands:

“If an offer comes that satisfies all parties, then things change.”



Weghorst did have an excellent season for Wolfsburg, scoring 25 goals in 41 appearances, and the 28-year-old has been targeted by English teams before.

He would certainly fit the profile that Hammers boss David Moyes is looking for in a forward. While the Dutchman is tall at 6ft 6, he does have a high work rate too, so he could certainly do a job as the lone frontman.

Whether he would have the physicality to play in the Premier League, though, it is debatable, and he is likely to be just one of a number of options West Ham are considering as they hunt for a new number nine.
