Wout Weghorst is a professional footballer who operates as a centre-forward for Besiktas, on loan from Burnley and the Netherlands national team. He is having an encouraging campaign in Turkey as he has managed to find some consistency in terms of his productivity in front of the opponent’s goal.
Weghorst has banged in ten goals and grabbed four assists in 21 matches for the Turkish club this season on all fronts. The 30-year-old has led the line relatively well based on his average of 3.3 shots, 1.1 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Turkish Super Lig. However, he has been a bit untidy when distributing the ball from the back, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 69.5% in league football (stats via whoscored).
