Newcastle Reportedly Have Dutch International At The Top Of Their Wish-List



Newcastle will be in the hunt for a striker or two this summer. We’ve been linked with quite a few already.

Though with four on the books for next season, it’s likely the club will also be trying to offload Yoshinori Muto, who’s barely played since joining, and Dwight Gayle, who has just one year remaining on his contract.

The plan could be to bring in two top strikers to compete with Andy Carroll and Joelinton, who have struggled to get goals this season.

A new name has come up in Newcastle’s search for a goalscorer. Sport Witness is citing German outlet Bild that the Magpies have identified Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst as a top target.

He joins a very long list of strikers linked with a summer move to Tyneside should the takeover get approved. If there’s one thing the Dutchman has brought recently, it’s goals.

Weghorst stands 6’6″ and has been scoring for fun over the past four years. He joined Bundesliga club Wolfsburg two seasons ago and has bagged 38 goals, 20 of them coming this season.

Before his move to Germany, the 27-year-old played for several Dutch clubs, including AZ Alkmaar, where he scored 45 times in 86 appearances before joining Wolfsburg.


Weghorst (shown above) made his debut for the Netherlands two years ago and has since made four international appearances, though has yet to get his debut goal for his country.

It’s hard to tell who Newcastle are really after. We really don’t know who will be involved in transfer activity this summer as it depends on the takeover getting pushed through or not.

Weghorst will turn 28 in August, so if we go by the Mike Ashley model, he’s likely not to be a target should the current owner remain at Newcastle.

Though we all hope that won’t be the case and the Premier League will finally get around to approving the Saudi-backed consortium as Newcastle’s new owners.

    Decent record for Weghorst tbf, 1 in 2 in the bundesliga, for Wolfsburg so not one of the top 4 teams in the league either.

    It’s not going to take much to compete with Carroll or Linton as a striker – could probably manage that myself

    At 6’6″ he’ll be a good option for lumping long balls to from deep. More of the same planned? Why do I feel like we’re going to be spending the next year saying “Weghourst might be useful but he needs other players around him as he’s too isolated?”

    Masters just got questioned directly on the takeover.

    Due to legalities he cant comment, confidentiality etc. Says it is unfortunate fans aren’t kept up to date but they cant comment.

    “Won by 7” means 7 clear goals to be fair.

    so 7-0 or 8-1 etc.

    Howay lads, i like to disagree with KV as much as the next guy (well maybe not as much as some 🙂 ), but winning by 7 goals means 7-0, 8-1, 9-2 etc.

    Yes we know the 7-1 wins but that wasnt what he asked.
