The Dutch attacker Wout Weghorst (25) moves from AZ to VfL Wolfsburg, which is reportedly about 11 million euros to pay. Weghorst signed Tuesday a contract to 2022 with the number 16 out of the past Bundesligaseizoen. He is teammate of goalkeeper Koen Casteels.
Weghorst made in march during the friendly against England making his debut in the Dutch national team. He collected three caps, all as a substitute. In two seasons at AZ, came the striker’s 31 goals in the premier league. With the Dutch team, he lost two times in a row the cup final. Weghorst has played previously for FC Emmen and Heracles Almelo.
“I have a very nice time in Alkmaar, but I was ready for the next step in my career”, says the striker, who last season at AZ often as the captain acted.
Wolfsburg had last season in addition to Casteels also strikers Divock Origi and Landry Dimata in the core. Origi was hired from Liverpool and his future is unclear. Dimata is clearly in the picture at Anderlecht.
