One year after Munas Dabbur fired Red Bull Salzburg to the Europa League semi finals, another Israeli centre-forward is making a name for himself in the competition.
Weissman has scored a remarkable 17 goals in 13 games this season alone with two of those coming in a 4-0 away win at Borussia Monchengladbach in September.
The 23-year-old only moved to Austria this summer from Maccabi Haifa but, if he carries on like this between now and the turn of the year, his stay at Wolfsburger could prove to be a very short one.
According to 90Min, West Ham, Leicester and crisis-club Tottenham have all been keeping close tabs on Weissman in recent weeks with Chelsea also interested, even though Frank Lampard has the luxury of leaving Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi on the bench.
West Ham and Leicester both have strikers in form in the shape of Sebastien Haller and Jamie Vardy but there’s a lack of real quality in reserve while Spurs still don’t have a centre-forward capable of really challenging Harry Kane for a place in the starting XI.
