On July 19th, RMC Sport journalist Loïc Tanzi reported Newcastle United and Brentford are looking to make a move for Jens Cajuste.
Two days later, Expressen stated Wolves, Leeds United and Crystal Palace have joined the Magpies in the chase for the FC Midtjylland star, but there was no mention of the Bees.
Fast forward to August and Sportbladet are now reporting the newly promoted Premier League side and the Danish club ‘have agreed on a transfer’ for the 21-year-old.
Rennes were keen on the midfielder, but their efforts haven’t been successful as Midtjylland rejected their third bid in the past few days. The Ligue 1’s side last bid was believed to be around SEK 120m (€11.1m).
It’s claimed Midtjylland chief Claus Steinlein has ‘accepted a bid’ from Brentford for the in-demand player, but there’s no mention of the details of the proposal.
Both the clubs are owned by Matthew Benham, and this could have helped Thomas Frank’s side to get ahead of competitors to sign the Sweden international.
Brentford, however, must agree personal terms with Cajuste, and as per Sportbladet, the two parties haven’t found an agreement for that so far.
If and when Cajuste manages to agree personal terms with the English club, he can make a switch to west London.
