Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst has admitted that he could be on the move this summer as Arsenal continue to be linked with his services.

The 27-year-old enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign for his German club, scoring 20 times and providing five assists in 42 appearances in all competitions.

Arsenal are thought to be interested in bringing the Netherlands international to the Premier League ahead of next season, and Weghorst has refused to rule out a summer switch.

“Nobody has to be afraid (should the club’s fans fear his exit). It is good for a club to get a lot of money again after investing in a player. I have ambitions and want to achieve the highest. In the past two years I have been able to show that I can run on the level and that there is more for me,” Weghorst told Bild.

“We discussed that we should sit down if something exciting should come for me. But because of corona, we have a strange market.

“I get a lot of recognition in Wolfsburg, I play an important role in sport and in human terms. I feel good, my family too. For me, it is also important whether VfL will do everything in its power to win titles in the future. But I trust the sporting leadership.”

Weghorst, who joined Bremen from Dutch outfit AZ in July 2018, netted 16 times in 32 appearances during the 2019-20 Bundesliga season.
