Wolfsburg forward Wout Weghorst admits he is a big fan of Liverpool and dreams of playing for the club one day.

Dutch striker Wout Weghorst is having a decent season with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.

He has been with the German club for two seasons now since his move from AZ Alkmaar of the Eredivisie in his native Holland.

Speaking to Goal, the 27-year-old has ambitions of playing in the Premier League at some point in his career.

He admits walking out in the red of Liverpool to the club’s famous anthem would be a dream come true.

Weghorst said:

“I always found Liverpool very special, I still get goosebumps from ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.”

“There are other great English clubs too, and I always liked Milan because so many Dutch played there.”

“I am ambitious and want to get ahead.”

“Maybe at some point play at another club, whether in Germany or in England?”

“But at the moment it is still far away. I feel good and try to achieve the maximum here.”

While Jurgen Klopp is believed to be actively scouring the Bundesliga for summer transfer targets, it remains to be seen if Weghorst is on that list.
