Newcastle United have now reportedly made an offer to sign Jens Cajuste before the summer transfer window ends.
The Lowdown: Brentford agree fee
It was reported earlier this month that Brentford had agreed a fee to sign Magpies target Cajuste, but that potential move has not materialised as of yet.
Should Newcastle sign Cajuste?
The St James’ Park faithful have reportedly shown a concrete interest in signing him, and they may still be able to do that before the window closes.
The Latest: Cajuste offer
As per football journalist Loic Tanzi, the North East club have now made an offer to try and sign Cajuste, worth €14m (£11.9m) plus €2m (£1.7m) in bonuses.
However, Rennes have already made three offers for the Midtjylland ace, and the competition for his signature is now ‘intensifying’.
The Verdict: Sign
The Tyneside club need to bolster their squad ahead of the new 2021/22 Premier League season, and the Sweden international would help do just that, given Steve Bruce another handy option in the centre of midfield.
Nonetheless, they would feel a great sense of satisfaction in beating off the fierce competition for his services, especially coming from their rivals in the top flight.
