In a recent tweet, RMC Sport journalist Loïc Tanzi revealed that Newcastle United are set to rival Brentford for FC Midtjylland midfielder Jens Cajuste this summer. It is understood that the Magpies will face competition from Brentford as well as Rennes in the race to land the Swedish midfield ace in this off-season.
Le dossier Jens Cajuste est à l'arrêt pour l'instant avec le Stade Rennais. Le club français, qui a pour priorité le recrutement d'un N.6 actuellement, doit vendre avant de pouvoir augmenter son offre. Pendant ce temps-là, Newcastle et Brentford souhaitent aussi avancer #Mercato

Cajuste’s Recent Rise In Danish Football
Cajuste experienced a solid campaign in Danish football as he put in a series of dominant displays for Midtjylland at the centre of the park. The 21-year-old appeared in 39 matches for the Danish club last season, finding the back of the net once and providing two assists in all competitions.
The promising midfield enforcer showed plenty of encouraging signs for the Danish giants over the past 12 months. He deserves credit for successfully establishing himself as a solid defensive midfielder at the MCH Arena.
His current contract with Midtjylland is set to expire in the summer of 2023, so Newcastle would have to make a sizable offer if they want to win the chase for his services during this summer transfer period. The Swedish talent could prove to be a valuable addition to Steve Bruce’s match-day squad if he can continue improving himself with each season.
Will Cajuste Be The Right Choice For The Magpies This Summer?
Cajuste is a moderately-paced central midfielder who can make some clever runs with the ball from midfield. He loves to get stuck in with a few crunching tackles to hamper the opposition’s flow in the game at the centre of the park.
The five-time Sweden international has got a great work ethic and possesses good defensive awareness that helps him earn possession back for his team. Hence, we can expect him to add a lot of bite and steel to Steve Bruce’s midfield department and increase competition for places within his squad. The Midtjylland prospect ticks all the right boxes in terms of what is required to succeed in English football.
Cajuste is already good enough to compete with Jonjo Shelvey and Sean Longstaff for a regular place in Newcastle’s starting XI. He could also help the Magpies steer clear of the relegation zone in the Premier League next season. With all things considered, Cajuste will be a good choice for the Tyneside outfit to consider ahead of the new campaign as he has the potential to become a future star at the highest level.
