Feyenoord gave Newcastle almost an ultimatum yesterday and wanted the Tyneside club to buy Jorgensen quickly so they can concentrate on a game against PSV on deadline day – this Wednesday.
But Jorgensen is in the side today who will play against Den Haag and that’s hardly good news for Newcastle fans.
As far as Feyenoord are concerned the deal may even be off as Newcastle seem to be looking at other cheaper alternative targets as it seems that £20M is too much for us to pay for the Danish striker.
Nicolai Jorgensen – have Newcastle lost interest?
There was some news today in the Sun that Newcastle could be after 24-year-old Brazilain striker Luan who plays for Gremio, has been offered to Newcastle for around £17.5M.
Liverpool are also interested in the player, but Gremio have offered him to Newcastle for a fee which is £2.5M less than the £20M Feyenoord want.
So since the only thing Mike Ashley thinks about is money, we assume he will want Rafa to sign Luan, who has been capped twice by Brazil and is good player.
If Rafa wants to do that then fine – as long as the manager gets who he wants this month.
