Newcastle United are reported to be interested in Jens Cajuste.
The midfielder, who plays for FC Midtjylland, is seemingly a wanted man at the moment.
Expressen have reported that as many as four sides are keen on the 21-year-old.
Those being Leeds United, Crystal Palace, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle.
According to the Chronicle, United have informed Midtjylland that Cajuste is high on their list of targets.
The development comes after Steve Bruce had spoken about his current lack of midfielders after the defeat to York City.
Talks are said to be ‘ongoing’ over the player, who was the subject of a failed £10 million bid from Rennes recently.
It has been claimed (Chronicle) Midtjylland would like to secure a fee of about £13 million for their asset.
Whether Newcastle can afford that remains to be seen, but the impending sale of Florian Lejeune may well help to get a deal done.
Newcastle fans react
Fans have been reacting to the club’s apparent interest in Cajuste on social media.
While lots don’t hold out much hope of him being signed, it’s something a few people would definitely like to see:
I’d prefer Boubacar Kamara.

Cajuste sitting deep, Gallagher Creating & Willock driving forward or arriving late to slot one home

I’ve seen a lot of speculation regarding the swedish midfielder Jens Cajuste… and let me till you this:
1. He would be a great addition to our weak central midfield.
2. If the rumors are true about his price tag… then there is no chance for us to sign him 😢#NUFC
