Wout Weghorst in stunning form since commenting on Spurs links

After taking a look at the current Premier League table, it is difficult to make any genuine criticism of Tottenham Hotspur’s summer transfer window.

Jose Mourinho’s men sit top of the pile. No team has conceded fewer goals. And only one side has found the back of the net on more occasions so far.

Probably unsurprisingly, Carlos Vinicius has played more of a peripheral role since his arrival in the summer. The 25-year-old has predominantly been involved in the Europa League and only made one substitute appearance in the top flight.

He has looked bright. So it would arguably be unfair to be too critical as his wait for his first Spurs goal goes on.

Nevertheless, perhaps it would be fair to say that there may be a little more pressure on the Brazilian due to the form currently being shown by another player linked with joining Spurs in the window.

The Daily Express reported in September that Tottenham were keen on Wout Weghorst. However, it was claimed that he would cost £27 million.

Interestingly, Football London reported that there was little in the links. But then Weghorst told Kicker last month that Spurs’ interest was serious. He also claimed that it is a dream to play in the Premier League one day.

Some Spurs fans were disappointed to hear Weghorst’s comments. It was suggested by several that he would have been a fantastic signing.

And since making those comments, Weghorst has gone on to enjoy a fantastic spell in front of goal.

The Dutchman has scored four in the five appearances he has made for Wolfsburg since commenting on the Tottenham links. That included a goal that proved to be the winner against a Hoffenheim side that included Ryan Sessegnon this month.

Of course, he surely would not have played as much had he joined Spurs. And as already mentioned, making a strong case against anything Tottenham did in the summer is difficult when the Premier League table looks the way it does.

But some may look at Weghorst’s current form and wonder if signing him would have been the icing on the cake for a side that appears to have the potential to challenge for the title this season.
