Wolfsburg hotshot sets sights on ‘dream’ move to Liverpool

Wout Weghorst TEAMtalk

Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst is confident his “dream” move to Liverpool can become a reality.

After scoring 18 times in 31 Eredivisie appearances last season Weghorst made the move to the German top flight, but already he has his sights on a move to Anfield.

“I’ve dreamt of [playing for Liverpool] since childhood,” he told De Telegraaf. “If I continue to train with full commitment, I think that opportunity will come.

“Of course, something like that depends on several factors. 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.”

The 26-year-old made his Holland debut earlier this year and he is determined to make the most of his career.

“I’ve always been surprised by the fact that people apparently don’t get everything out of it,” he added. “Sometimes I think it really is a pity that I don’t have that exceptional talent. If I had, I would probably have been able to reach the absolute top.

“I’m now going for my own personal limit, but because I don’t have that exceptional talent, I don’t know how high it will be.

“Ultimately, everyone wants to be talked about in a positive way, but my urge to reach my personal best exceeds everything.
