Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst has insisted he is ‘not working’ on a move to Tottenham despite their interest in the summer.

Spurs were heavily linked with the Dutchman throughout the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho sought competition for Harry Kane.

He ultimately settled on a move for Carlos Vinicius, with the striker joining Tottenham on a season-long loan deal from Benfica.

The interest in Weghorst was serious, though, with the striker even confirming that the constant rumours ended up affecting his form at one point.

Since the summer he has continued to shine in the Bundesliga, with him currently sitting on 15 goals and one assists in 18 games in all competitions this season

That has, predictably, led to renewed suggestions he could make the move to Tottenham, with it believed that they could return in January.

Weghorst has poured cold water on those rumours, though, stating he is happy with his current situation.

“I am not working on it now, because I have no control over it,” he told Eindhoven Dagblad.

“I don’t think January is the ideal time to make a transfer either. It’s only football, so you never know.

“I also have to be satisfied with what I have. I have a great contract with a club where I like it.

“We live here nicely, have a good time. I think I can stay here for the rest of my life; I like that.

“But I am ambitious; I would like to play the Champions League, that seems so nice.”
