According to reports in The Times, Newcastle have upped their bid for Feyenoord striker Nicolai Jorgensen.

After having their initial bid of £14m rejected with Feyenoord looking for closer to £20m, it is reported that Newcastle have come back with a bid of £15m for the 27-year-old. 

With the January transfer deadline slamming shut on Wednesday, Rafa Benitez is going all out to sign a striker to help them avoid relegation.


The Danish international has scored nine goals in 19 appearances this season, over double the amount of any Newcastle player. Fans will hope that he would be able to replicate this for if he were to join the Tyneside club. 

After only joining the club in 2016 from Copenhagen, Feyenoord will not want to let their main goalscorer go but may be tempted as Newcastle up their offer.

The chance to play Premier League football will be exciting for the Dane and Feyenoord may struggle to hold onto him if this is the case. 

Newcastle fans will be apprehensive over this potential signing. It would break the club's transfer record and there is no guarantee that Jorgensen would adapt quickly to English football.
