Wout Weghorst TEAMtalk

Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst has reiterated his childhood desire to join “very special” Liverpool.

Weghorst has made no secret of his admiration for the Reds previously. In 2018 he claimed he was confident his “dream” move to Liverpool can become a reality.

But as yet, the 27-year-old’s hopes remain a dream because Jurgen Klopp is not thought to be looking at the forward, who has scored 33 goals in 70 games for Wolfsburg since joining in summer 2018.

Weghorst also had a respectable record of 51 goals in 124 Eredivisie games before his Bundesliga move, and he hopes that form will eventually see him move to the Premier League.

“I always found Liverpool very special,” he told Goal and DAZN.

“I still get goosebumps from ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. There are other great English clubs too, and I always liked Milan because so many Dutch played there.

“I am ambitious and want to get ahead. Maybe at some point play at another club, whether in Germany or in England? But at the moment it is still far away. I feel good and try to achieve the maximum here.”

In August 2018, the four-cap Dutch international spoke of how “that opportunity” with Liverpool “will come” if he continues on the right track.

“Of course, something like that depends on several factors,” he told De Telegraaf. “You have to stay fit and a coach and club must see it in you, but apart from that you can create many things in life for yourself.

“I’ve dreamt of [playing for Liverpool] since childhood.”
