The 28-year-old is currently on holiday in Portugal, but has told VI that discussions have begun with Sporting over a potential transfer.

The first contact between Sporting and Van Weert’s management was made a few days ago and a big transfer could be on the cards for the striker, who netted 12 goals for Groningen last season.

The former FC Den Bosch and Excelsior forward still has a one-year contract in Groningen meaning Sporting would need to pay a fee for the deal.

Sporting CP are in the middle of a crisis with several of their key players, including Bas Dost, asking to have their contracts torn up after they were attacked by fans at their training ground.
