This Top Young Ajax Winger Could Be Great Buy For Newcastle


Viktor Fischer has just turned 19 years old and last season this left winger played 33 times for Ajax with 12 goals and he has already been capped twice by Denmark.

Viktor Fischer

Viktor Fischer – world-class winger in the making?

Viktor started his career at Lyseng IF in Denmark when he was just 5 years old (they get them young these days) and moved to two other Danish clubs, AGF in 2004 and FC Midtjylland in 2009 before being singed by Ajax in 2011 on a three-year deal.

But other top clubs – such as Chelsea, Inter Milan, Manchester City and Manchester United were after him, based on his excellent performances for the Denmark U17 side in the FIFA U17 World Cup in Mexico in 2011.

That was even after Denmark finished bottom of their Group F with just one point, the group was won by Brazil who lost in the semi-final to Uruguay with host country Mexico beating them 2-0 in the final.

Fischer made his debut for the Ajax first team in the 2012–13 pre-season, in a win against SV Huizen, and then went on to play 33 times for the Dutch giants with 12 goals and 6 assists – so this lad looks like a world-class winger in the making.

And in February manager Frank de Boer announced that Viktor Fischer had extended his contract with Ajax until 2017 – Ajax are not daft.

And not surprisingly Fischer was announced as the AFC Ajax Talent of the Year, for his outstanding debut season.

Even now this lad would be expensive, but if Newcastle are going to have £40M players in the future, the club will have to spot them early and develop them into world-class players, something we could well do with current youngsters Gael Bigirimana and local lad Adam Campbell.

This is another in our series where we point out top young players, who could become Newcastle targets this summer or in the future, but this lad may already be too good?

What do you think?

    Aye Ed, we can all but dream. Until we get our academy coaching and personal development sorted out, we’ll never get the up and coming talent on board.

    Top prospect! Could see him converting to a striker in the future!
    Would be worth 10m now, could easily be a 25m player in future

    it depends upon how you use it, Mourinho, Wenger and Ferguson are all arrogant, but they used to try and make their opponents feel inferior, which worked well for them.
    Lets face it, arrogance is a belief that you are better, which they used very well, self confidence is what made Kevin Keegan such a good manager, although he never believed that we were superior, he had the confidence to believe that we could be. So who won, the confident one, or the arrogant one, food for thought ?

    Like it or not , Newcastle are a club that can’t attract top players. We are likened to Everton now, we have a great fan base that is restricted to the city, that’s out only usp. Sad times, hopefully we have learnt our lesson from last season , but honestly I’m fed up of being emotional drained by the clubs management and decisions. When someone’s life is dominated by checking newsnow every 20 minutes there lies a massive problem ! Not expecting much this window, be suprised if we net spend more than 7 million

    Spoof, this’s like playing chasey!

    Repost from previous:

    Agree with what you’re alluding to Spoof, but those guys do have proven records of success whereas some may not have such credibility and without that, arrogance does not wash!

    Slight difference between him and Obertan 🙂
    This lad knows how to play in others and how to put in a cross and to top it off he knows where the net is too 🙂

    jamesnufc86. That strikes a chord with me and many others, I’m sure.

    That’s life I suppose or there’s always Man U to support instead. Ah but that’s too easy and suits the fair-weather fans. Not ur idiots!!

    Rumour has it Gladbach are moving in on Bendtner. Hopefully, as replacement for Luuk joing us together with his brother ;-p But probably more to replace Hanke.

    Lesh , I’m from Scotland moved over to Britain from America at 6 years old , I wish I didn’t become addicted to Newcastle on the basis of watching Liverpool vs Newcastle – one of the classics , if I’d know what I was in store for I would have liked Chelsea or Man U ha ha , I’d be an all rounded happier person

    do you not feel it could be as simple as perception, if successful, arrogance makes you appear a bigger and stronger character, whereas without the success it only irritates people, so with that in mind, is it right to judge people upon their arrogance level, for me it’s irrelevant, yet for some reason some people do seem to use it against Pardew, yet there is no reason to suggest that there is any validity to the assumption that it holds him back. Mountains out of mole hills, springs to mind

    Just watched a video of Isco…..ridiculous. Like Ben Arfa on crack. We should sell cabaye and coloccini and give Isco their wages and transfer fee

    I’d even put in a loan bid just for our preseason to see him in a newcastle shirt

    I know any man could claim to “know something that others don’t, however, I genuinely worked with a guy that used to be involved at Siuthampton and knew Pardew, he said that he was the most arrogant prick you could ever set eyes on , he was hated for it at soton, gutted me a bit as he seems to come across quite well from a media point of view , morale of story , he’s a dick

    He’s also linked to Napoli in Italy.

    Probably not much in this unless they sell Bradley, Pjanic, Osvaldo etc. and Cavani etc for Napoli.

    please don’t get me started on heritage, which is where most fans get their love of a club from, I often berate my father because he supported Newcastle rather than Manure and I followed suit, but he blames my grand dad as my dad followed him, and so on and so on, that’s probably why we are more passionate than the Prawn sandwich brigade at Manure, we are all long surrering fans whose up-bringing will not allow us to change allegiance, whereas Old Trafford is half full with glory hunters, which is an accusation which could never be thrown at us
    Strangely enough, I work in Newcastle City centre, and there are two Manure supporters whom I work with, yet I have been to Old Trafford more than those two put together, says it all really, doesn’t it

    as far as the Soton fans are concerned, it must be them who are the dicks, due to the simple fact that they were a better club with a better team when Pardew left than what they were when he started

    Spoof , it does say it all , I find with Newcastle fans you can’t help but be totally captivated with everything that surrounds the club, I’ve never met a Newcastle fan that doesn’t know the finer details, sets us a part in my opinion , if you like Newcastle , you are obsessed with football

    I read loads of blogs but one thing that often comes across is knowing what we all need and want as far as signings go. Yet Year after year we get the same old story’s we have missed out or out priced in the transfer market. Not saying we should be getting ourselves massively in debt just we should show more ambition. Who knows it just might pay off.

    NBA…don’t worry mate it won’t happen 😉

    He would be a great buy because he can play both as a lone striker and side by side with Cisse as a defensive or deeplying forward; he can also play in the hole just behind Cisse and as Ed puts it he can play on the left, but not as a wing but as an inside forward.

    The problems for us is he’s not a winger (which some might think he is and wingers are something else on the continent compared to the UK) and play a negative brand of football that is quite the oposite to what he’s good at and used to.

    Both Ajax and Denmark play 4-3-3; actually they play the exact samr formation just slightly different in style.

    If only………

    Slow (real) news day then,

    Douglas – yes,
    Bent – rather we didn’t

    De Jong brothers would fit us well but again doubtful for both.

    I’ve often thought I would actually dislike it Newcastle got taken over by a company that has billions and billions , ie man city owners, it destroys the nucleus of a football club in my opinion , it becomes so money orientated that footballers don’t play for anything but money, I know all footballers are loaded , but I just think Newcastle still have players playing for the badge too , ie perch, tiote , Taylor , they would be gone if we got took over

    Spoof -from previous post -you state that a person is born arrogant. This is clearly not true. Arrogance is a “learned behaviour”. If you researched the subject a bit you will find my assertion is correct. In the world of psychology there are many interesting debates on the arrogance versus self confidence theme.

    Arrogance isn’t a learnt behaviour , taking your shoes off before you enter a house is, you’re not conditioned to be arrogent , it’s through experience you develop arrogance

    A learnt behaviour is something that you are specifically conditioned to do I.e swearing lots because your dad did , you can’t say that you have learnt to be arrogant without having experiences which dictate you attitude, aspects of arrogance can be learned but not without experience
