The agent of Wolfsberger striker Shon Weissman has rubbished claims that several Premier League sides are watching his client.

Weissman was linked with a move to the Premier League this week, with a report from 90min claiming that Chelsea, Tottenham, Leicester and West Ham were all keen.

It stated that his impressive start to this season, eight goals in nine games, had caught the attention of the Premier League quartet.

They were particularly interested with his showings in the Europa League, while a host of European clubs were all keeping an eye on him.

It was Chelsea, Tottenham, Leicester and West Ham that were presented as those keenest, but that appears not to be the case as far as his agent is concerned.

In an interview with Kleine Zeitung, relayed by SPOX, he admits that he is in contact with other clubs, but links to the Premier League are not correct.

“That’s not serious and is fictitious,” he said.

“It’s a normal process (being in touch with other clubs) I will not burden Shon with such things.

“He signed a two-year deal at WAC three months ago and has only played 13 games for Wolfsberger, and he feels very comfortable here.”

That seemingly puts an end to any speculation linking Weissman with a move to the Premier League in the short-term.

In truth, quite why either Chelsea, Tottenham, Leicester or West Ham would be interested in the striker was debatable anyway.

None of those clubs desperately need extra forward power at this moment in time for a start.

Chelsea have Tammy Abraham tearing it up, Spurs have Harry Kane and West Ham and Leicester both spent big to add strikers to their squad this summer meaning all four are probably looking elsewhere for their next signings.

Weissman may become a player those, and others, are interested in moving forward, but for now, it seems a move to the Premier League won’t be happening.
