Wout Weghorst has been linked with a move to West Ham over this past week.

And the Hammers have just been handed a huge boost in their hopes of signing the towering Dutchman.
Calcio Mercato have claimed that David Moyes wants to bring the 28-year-old to the London Stadium this summer.
Goal are now reporting that new Wolfsburg boss Mark van Bommel is already lining up replacements for Weghorst.
The giant striker would be a very useful addition for West Ham.
He would certainly provide us with even more of a threat from set-pieces!
Wout Weghorst a good signing for West Ham
It will cost around £26 million for the Hammers to bring the 28-year-old to the London Stadium this summer (Buli News).
That seems like a rather extortionate fee for a 28-year-old who is totally unproven in the Premier League.,
He does possess an impressive career record, however, with 154 goals in 352 games (Transfermarkt).
Weghorst scored 25 goals in 41 games for Wolfsburg this season (Transfermarkt).
The 6ft 6in target man is an absolute menace in the air.
He would provide us with a totally different option through the middle, especially when we are playing against a deep block and need more of an aerial threat.
Weghorst would certainly be an interesting addition for West Ham this summer.
