Wolfsburg striker Weghorst distracted by 'hectic' Tottenham links

Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst has admitted he was distracted by links with Tottenham last summer.

Spurs were on the hunt for a back-up striker for Harry Kane and eventually signed Carlos Vinicius from Benfica.

Speaking to De Telegraaf (viaFootball Oranje), Weghorst said: "Those were hectic days. You can say very boldly that you focus on your own club, but unconsciously it does something to you of course. You also saw it in my game.

"Looking back on that situation, I think: sometimes you also have to be satisfied. That does not mean that I do not want to make the step to the European top, on the contrary. But I am just very happy in Wolfsburg and get a lot of appreciation here."
