Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst says it would be "very special" to join boyhood heroes Liverpool.

While Jurgen Klopp is not thought to be interested in the 27-year-old, Weghorst has made no secret of his admiration for the Reds.

He could soon emerge as a target after scoring 33 goals in 70 games for Wolfsburg since joining in summer 2018.

Weghorst also had a respectable record of 51 goals in 124 Eredivisie games before his Bundesliga move, and hopes to parlay that sort of form into an eventual Premier League transfer.

"I always found Liverpool very special," he told Goal and DAZN.

"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."

In August 2018, the four-cap Dutch international spoke of how "that opportunity" with Liverpool "will come" if he continues on the right track.

"Of course, something like that depends on several factors,” he told De Telegraaf. “You have to stay fit and a coach and club must see it in you, but apart from that you can create many things in life for yourself.

"I've dreamt of [playing for Liverpool] since childhood."
