Wout Weghorst says he wants to join Liverpool at some point.
Wout Weghorst has revealed to De Telegraaf he is confident that he will fulfill a childhood ambition and join Liverpool at some point in his career.
The 26-year-old striker has only just secured a transfer after joining Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg from AZ Alkmaar back in June.
But the three-time Netherlands international clearly has a lot bigger things planned down the line.
Weghorst, who scored 18 goals for the Dutch outfit last season, has told De Telegraaf that he reckons he could be joining the Reds at some stage if things go to plan in Germany.
He said: “I’ve dreamt of it since childhood. 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.”
Considering Jurgen Klopp often keeps an eye on German football, Weghorst will do his chances of joining Liverpool no harm at all if he rips up the Bundesliga this season.
He certainly seems a confident player if he is touting himself for the Reds – who were beaten in the Champions League final last season – and one who knows the way to goal.
But confidence and goals aren’t enough to secure a full-time trip to Anfield – you also need to be capable of playing in Klopp’s system and it remains to be seen whether Weghorst can handle that.
