On July 21st, SportExpressen explained Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United ‘want to recruit’ Jens Cajuste in the summer.
It was also explained the English clubs have ‘concrete interest’ in the player and have held talks with both his camp and FC Midtjylland.
Brentford are keen to sign the midfielder and earlier this month, Sportbladet reported Midtjylland chief Claus Steinlein had ‘accepted a bid’ from the Bees for the 22-year-old.
They had also stressed Thomas Frank’s side must agree personal terms with the Sweden international for the deal to take shape.
Tipsbladet editor-in-chief Troels Bager Thøgersen reported last Friday that Leeds ‘put in a bid of well over’ DKK 100m [€13.4m], but it was ‘rejected’ because the Danish club value their star at DKK 125m [€16.8m].
Over the past few weeks, various claims from Sweden and Denmark have explained the Whites are among the clubs interested to sign Cajuste.
Leeds United and other suitors have received encouragement after Midtjylland sporting director Svend Graversen admitted it’s unlikely Cajuste will continue at the club beyond the ongoing window.
“There is such a keen interest in Jens that I find it difficult to see that nothing will happen in the near future with him,” Graversen told Tipsbladet.
“There are a lot of clubs that are interested and there are also many clubs that are concrete in their interest. Then it is the case for us and for Jens that we must find the optimal solution for all parties.”
Midtjylland allowed Frank Onyeka to join Brentford last month. When quizzed if Cajuste will follow his former teammate to the English club, Graversen said: “I can’t comment on that, but there is a lot of interest from several of the big leagues. We’ll see where he ends up.”
