Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United have been linked with Shon Weissman.
Wolfsberger striker Shon Weissman may not be a well-known name, but he’s certainly impressing for the Austrian side so far this season.
Weissman, 23, joined Wolfsberger from Maccabi Haifa this past summer, having spent the entirety of his career up until that move in his native Israel.
The striker has been in sensational form since signing for Wolfsberger, hitting 17 goals in 13 games so far this term, as recorded by Transfermarkt.
Weissman scored in Wolfsberger’s stunning 4-0 away win over Borussia Monchengladbach last month, and also made his debut for Israel against Slovenia.
His career is drawing parallels to that of Moanes Dabour, another Israeli striker who impressed in Austrian football before earning a big move, with Dabour joining Sevilla this past summer.
Now, Weissman is being linked with huge clubs. 90Min claim that Chelsea, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are all tracking Weissman, but his agent has offered a strong response.
Lino Heiduck of the Connexion agency has spoken to Neue in Austria about the situation, and believes that the striker is ‘very comfortable’ at Wolfsberger having only signed a two-year deal a few months ago.
Heiduck also seemed pretty angry about the rumours, suggesting that they are ‘not reputable’, and he wouldn’t burden Weissman by being in contact with other clubs, even if that’s a normal process for agents to undertake.
“That’s not true,” said Heiduck. “This is not reputable and fictitious. Being in contact with clubs and managers, scouts on the ground and watching players, is a normal process. I will not burden Shon with such things. Only three months ago he signed a two-year contract with the WAC and only played 13 games for Wolfsberg. He feels very comfortable here,” he added.
