Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to be one of a few teams keen on Jens Cajuste of FC Midtjylland.

Expressen have claimed that interest is mounting in the talented 21-year-old, who went to Euro 2020 with Sweden, but only played six minutes against Spain.

Apparently the interest is concrete from Wolves and negotiations have taken place.

But Leeds United, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United are all mentioned too.

Rennes were also showing interest and had actually tabled a first bod the player.

But the French side are struggling to afford Midtjylland’s asking price, which is said to be around £12 million.

Perhaps ominously, Cajuste was not included in his side’s Champions League qualifier on Tuesday night.


It is suggested the Danish outfit may not want to risk anything happening to their asset as a big sale could be imminent.

Wolves need a bigger name

Cajuste is clearly a great prospect to have drawn interest from four Premier League clubs.

Indeed, the Daily Record recently described him as Midtjylland’s ‘young jewel in the crown’, and ‘destined for bigger things’.

But he’s still only 21 and Wolves perhaps need to be looking at bringing in someone with a bit more experience and pedigree at this point.

There are plenty of youngsters at Molineux right now that are years from their peak.

Perhaps if Wolves have around £12 million to spend on Cajuste, it should be spent on a more household name.
