Newcastle Expected To Make An Improved Bid For Jorgensen

There seems to have been little movement at Newcastle yesterday on whether they should bid £20M for 27-year-old Danish International striker Nicolai Jorgensen.

Newcastle have bid £14M for the Feyenoord striker, but his club want £20M so therein lies another dilemma for Mike Ashley – the thrifty owner who doesn’t like to spend money if he can get by without doing so.

It would be a club record signing for Newcastle and beat the £16M deal we wrapped up for Michael Owen way back in 2005 – when Newcastle were an ambitious club.

Feyenoord drew 1-1 in the Eredivisie at Utrecht last night with Jorgensen missing the game through suspension.

Nicolai Jorgensen – 27-year-old Danish International striker

The manager had this to say about the striker before the game:

“I have not heard anything from Technical Director Martin van Geel yet. There may be something in play, but I have not heard anything yet.”

“I know there is interest, but I have not heard from Martin (Van Geel) that there are negotiations. Anything can happen in the transfer market.”

“And if an English club is interested then you know it can go fast.”

Newcastle are expected to make a second bid for the striker, and the Chronicle is reporting the player is keen to come to Newcastle.

Let’s hope we can wrap this one up quickly – but in the business of transfers, it’s always difficult to do any quick deals at Newcastle.

That’s an area Rafa needs to correct if he decides to stay won at Newcastle after all the stuff that has gone on this season.

If Rafa wants this player then Ashley should pay up what’s necessary to sign him and not wait until the last minute, because then we will not get him in.

What do you think?

    I still think NUFC shouldn’t pay anymore for Nicolai Jorgenson than what was paid by Brighton for Jorgen Locadia, which was about £14-16 million.

    Not sure what people see in cairney as he’s only had one good season in the champ. He’s not got any stand out attributes and is the type to come into the prem and be another run of the mill midfielder. You could probably get 50 Tom cairneys for 5m in foreign leagues.

    Here is my guess for who we’ll go for for what it’s worth. I think we’ll offer Sporting Mitrovic plus 10-15m for Bas Dost. Mitrovic will score 20-30 in the portugese leage so they’ll be getting a good deal and he’s younger.

    Seems very underwhelming, i wonder if the money offered for Jorgensen is counting any revenue from player sales? No offers as yet for any of our listed players so i suppose it is money made available, just think we could have been a bit more ambitious. Same old same old.

    I think we’ll get this fella

    Other clubs seem to do
    their horse trading out
    of the glare of publicity.

    At NUFC we seem to have
    every bid scrutinised and
    mulled over
    Then the usual suspects
    the clever dick ITK’s
    can mock Charnley or say it’s
    Barnes or Bishop interfering.

    Here Feyenoordsupporter.

    1) 16 million euro is absurd. All of Holland laugh about it. He not even worth half of it.
    2) Jorgenson is a way better striker, topscorer en made us champions, so you have to pay for it. Feyenoord wil accept likely only bids £20+. Not strange if you tink its winter and we have no real substite for him.
    3) we as fans hope you come back because the season is over for us so no champions league money, so we can compare it with this transfer 😉
    4) for the writer; Feyenoord play a draw last night, not lost at Utrecht
    5) hope that you get out of the relegationzone

    i know, youtube, but this guy has no pace, so i’m not sure how he works in a Rafa team, from the clips i have seen he is no better or worse than Mitro, he is the same type of player

    Catchy you have just answered you question its you tube, Shola looked a world beater on there while in reality he was a poor striker, wait until we sign him and he plays before making a judgement that he is no better than mitro

    Chris1111- Is Jorgensen any good?

    What are his strengths and weaknesses?

    Do you think he can adapt to the English Premier League?

    What player would you compare his style with?

    My opinion,
    Bas Dost would be my first choice without a doubt so any deal that would bring him to SJP then I would be happy with including selling the likes of Mitro or Gayle, But Dost likes good precise crosses with plenty of pace and we don’t even do that at the moment . In reality Dost will not come to SJP , So it’s Jorgensen as his finishing is a lot better than we have at present. Our lads couldn’t hit a barn door at the minute ( Not sure why ) But that seems to be the fact. What do they do in training apart from posing for photo’s ? Big Al used to practice his penalty taking for hours on end and according to him it gave him a better precise shot.

    I would love Bas Dost here. He is a giant and a clinical finisher. Too expensive and too mich work for Charnley and co to do in a week. He’d never pull something like that off. Sporting will be reluctant to sell him too.

    Maybe Jorgensen is going to be our Kuyt? Linking midfield with attack. The problem there is we still need a striker to score the bloody GOALS!

    But in the summer Dost and a more mobile striker that likes the ball to feet, runs the channels and has a great finish would see this team go up in leaps and bounds.

    Next Mike Williamson
    Mitrovic wouldn’t get 20-30 goals in the Portuguese league, if you think any different you haven’t seen the standard. The premier league is massively overrated.

    And over hyped

    Well, we all know the PL is much tougher then Holland. But he did very well in Danmark, where they say he he can be at a better club then Feyenoord. He is strong, more fast then you think and very, i dont know how you name it but he can keep the ball with him, or just use him as a centerpoint to throw the ball in.
    Of course, he is 27 or so and he play in holland. Then there something ‘wrong’ with you. But when he choosed to go to Feyenoord he could go higher but he just choose not to. He has champions league expierence with Feyenoord and Kopenhagen.
    He is maybe like Dzeko, kind of. A bad version of Lewandowski. But better then Bas Dost??
    But… Feyenoord was/is champions of Holland, so the play 75% on the opposite side and a lot in the 16 yard(?)box of the opponent. And relegation footbal is something different for every striker, especcialy a new guy i imagine

    Jorgensen is way better then Dost. No Feyenoord supporter should trade jorgensen for dost. No way

    Dost is overrated

    Just looking at this guy he looks like a generic pregenerated FIFA striker. Not saying looks are anything but there’s nothing memorable about him, he just feels generic and boring and like a waste of time.

    If we sign him he’ll end up being no better than Joselu but with a world more pressure on his shoulders.

    He looks like he just wake up but he is fit. Second bid is not accepted .
    Just pay the £20+ or leave us alone 😉
