According to the report, Newcastle and Feyenoord are in negotiations for Nicolai Jorgensen, with the Dutch side holding out for 22.5 million euros. Sources at the De Kuip Stadium have indicated that Newcastle have upped their initial offer of around 15.75 million euros but the bid has again fallen short of the valuation for the Danish international striker. Feyenoord and Jorgensen know that his future may lie elsewhere and are open to a sale only for the right valuation.
Will Nicolai Jorgensen be a Newcastle player soon? Only time will tell. One thing is nearly certain. Thanks to his great displays, he’ll be at a much bigger club than Feyenoord this time next year.
