Wolfsburg star striker Wout Weghorst has commented on his future at the German club, and on possibly taking a step up in his career in the future.


Speaking with De Telegraaf, Weghorst claimed that he will only leave Wolfsburg if he opts to take a step higher in his career.


Weghorst has had a remarkable season with Wolfsburg, scoring 25 goals and providing nine assists in 41 games in all competitions.


This has led to him being linked with a possible move to either West Ham United or AS Roma, with Calciomercato.com claiming that the two clubs wanting to add to their options up front for the coming season.


In the interview with De Telegraaf, Weghorst practically claimed that it would take something truly special for him to leave the Volkswagen Arena this summer.


"Wolfsburg will play in the Champions League next season. That is very important to me as a football player and person."


"I want to be stimulated every time and get out of my comfort zone. That will happen again soon."


"In addition, I feel greatly appreciated in Wolfsburg. If the opportunity arises to take a step higher, we will listen to the story of that club and the complete picture must be right. But as you can imagine, my focus is now entirely on the European Championship."


Weghorst would be a very attractive option for both West Ham and Roma, with West Ham wanting a striker that could help them challenge in Europe, while Jose Mourinho wants him to help his Roma rebuild.
