Burnley striker Wout Weghorst should make the move to FC Twente and turn down any interest from Ajax this summer.

That’s according to analyst Johan Derksen, who, alongside Bas Nijhuis, has covered the Dutch striker today.

Weghorst finds himself back in the spotlight after his winning goal for the Netherlands in the 2-1 win over Poland in their opening game at Euro 2024.

That’s led to a growing number of transfer reports about him, with several clubs in his home country thought to be looking at a potential move for him this summer.

He’s set to return to Burnley from a loan spell at Hoffenheim, but he and the Clarets are believed to be seeking a permanent separation, especially with him in the final year of his contract at Turf Moor.

FC Twente were the first to be credited with an interest in him, but Ajax have been thrown into the mix over the last week or so, with them rebuilding their squad this summer.

They’ve quickly been put at the front of the queue given their size, history and finances compared to Twente, but Derksen has urged the Burnley man to let his heart, and not his head, decide on this occasion.

“He has to go to Twente, man! In his native region, isn’t that, right?” he said.

“I recently read in the newspaper that he dreamed of ending up at FC Twente. Then you have to do that now, while you are still somewhat fit.

“If you want to settle there again, he is involved in trade, those brothers have that AVIA petrol, so it is also very attractive commercially. It is an enterprising family; they are not below the poverty line.”

“At Twente they still have the idea that Wout will choose FC Twente. It would be very nice for the Tukkers if he could go there, but if you can go to Ajax…” added Nijhuis.
