Nicolai Jorgensen has now switched agents and has been offered to Newcastle United once again.

Back in January Newcastle were reported to have been unsuccessful in a bid for the striker.

After watching him play, especially at this World Cup, I’m not sure what I believe less – that supposedly he was valued at £20m, or that Rafa Benitez was ever truly interested in buying him.

The new reports claim that it is now a reduced price that Nicolai Jorgensen is being offered at but it would have to be very reduced surely, for Newcastle even to consider him as a squad player, never mind an automatic first choice to score a serious amount of goals.

Looking at his general play, it was no surprise to see the Feyenoord striker fail to score over in Russia.

In fact, you only had to look at his goalscoring form ahead of the finals to know what to expect.

He scored only two goals in nine World Cup qualifiers and these were the only goals for Denmark since November 2016.

It has also emerged that ahead of being offered to Newcastle United once again, Nicolai Jorgensen had received death threats.

This followed his penalty miss on Sunday, he was one of three Danish players to miss in the shoot out against Croatia, but his was the final and decisive failure.

The striker endured a barrage of online abuse, to both his Facebook and Instagram profiles, and the Danish Football Association have reported the matter to the police

Statement from the Danish FA:


“Our society must never accept death threats, neither against World Cup stars, politicians or others.

“It is completely unacceptable and indecent.

“We are reporting the case to the police to end this madness.”

Very difficult to see Rafa having any interest in Jorgensen but I suppose a case of never say never, especially until we find out at what level the Newcastle boss is being allowed to shop this summer.

    A line has definitely been crossed with the death threats,bang out of order…….we still don’t want him mind you… rubbish.

    • MichaelMaximusMoose

      Him & the Hoss upfront, it doesn`t bare thinking about, does it

      • panther

        id be issuing death threats then

        • Leicester Mag

          A duel between them could last a while

          • panther


      • 1957

        A new PL record for the least goals scored in a season by any team would be worth a bet, if those two teamed up

    • Kneebotherm8

      He could possibly be an upgrade on the Hoss…………only possibly…….probably a close call between the two of them……..

      • Peaky

        I think Nutty said the other day ….six and two threes…

        • Kneebotherm8

          He’s right…

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    Not worth a chow, but online threats are out of order & whoever advocated the signing of this lad wants sacking.
    1 look at his CV was enough to say, he`s not Premiership quality

  • Dillon Tovak

    Some of his play was pretty decent, that touch for Eriksens goal was sublime.
    However his finishing looks horrific.
    I hope to god we get a striker better than him, I would say he’s marginally better than Joselu though.

    • Peaky

      The way Fatso & Penfold are valuing our players at the minute they would probably expect at least £12m for The Hoss…

    • Kneebotherm8

      If Joselu is worth £5 million……….then Jorgensen is worth about………£5 million…….

      • Peaky


        • Kneebotherm8


        • Kneebotherm8

          Do you think Ashleys had his name thrown into the hat just to wind us all up?……………he’s good at that like…….

      • 1957

        No… as much as it grieves me to say it the Hoss is worth more

        • Kneebotherm8

          I wouldn’t argue…….

    • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

      It was, I could see why he’s a Rafa type of player because of that goal but he’s no threat without either a fast striker (by that I mean someone who gets his shot away quickly as well as having pace) or three very strong attacking midfielders who also can get their shot away.

      word is that Rafa is keen.

  • Leazes.

    Pretty poor, not a step in the right direction at all.

  • Peaky

    FFS….Ronnie has got its transfer countdown clock up and running…

  • SuperDesHamilton

    😂😂😂 who would waste time doing that on this bloke

  • Wezza

    Discount? That’s what Charnley wants!

  • Peter C

    Going by his performances at the World Cup, don’t want him at Newcastle.
    He’s not worth the money, it’s totally uncalled for, for him to be threatened in any manner.
    Hope the idiots how’ve made these threats, get caught, and the full power of the law is brought to bear on them.

  • Brazilian John

    We could threat him not to come!

  • 1957

    I can’t see why anyone would want to buy him, he was woeful in the league games I watched on tv never mind at the world cup… you have to seriously question the judgement of any scout who thought this is a PL player

  • robbersdog

    Stéphane Guivarc’h, a World Cup winner, was useless, but this guy’s a lot worse.
    There’s no point in selling Mitro and replacing him with a big lump who couldn’t hit a cow’s a*se with a banjo.

    • Kneebotherm8

      Jorgensen is Stephane Guivarc’h……….minus a World Cup winners medal…..

      • Geordiegiants


  • HarryHype59

    The odd cove Clarko argued he was worth £18m in the Jan window. This was based upon his goals per minute ratio in the weak Dutch league. I would sooner play the Hoss, never mind Mitro, ahead of this guy.

    • Clarko

      And my argument was valid, your counter was that Afonso Alves was bad which means that Jorgensen is bad 😂

    • Geordiegiants

      Judging off what I’ve seen I couldn’t agree more.

  • Mxpx

    I think that it’s unfair to judge him on the world Cup I mean raheem sterling would be the worst player in the world if we judge people this way not sure how he’d do at Newcastle but to suggest that joselu is as good is ridiculous scored 21/32 the season before granted in the Dutch league but does anyone believe joselu would even manage that many shots on target

  • X,WHY,Y MAN.

    I think he would end up flopping in The Premier League like the De Jong brothers did so it’s a no from me.

  • MadMag83

    I wouldn’t worry, if their shooting is as bad as his they’ll never kill him.

  • Foggy

    Unimpressed with him. Looks slow with poor control. Take a pass Rafa.

  • Paul Patterson


  • Ram Kishore

    The limit is criticism.. anything beyond that is completely unacceptable..
    It would be hard for any striker to score goals for us unless players around him create a lot of chances..

  • Wor Lass

    Some sad tosser leaves off from fiddling with his sister long enough to tell Jorgensen he`s going to kill him and the media immediately builds it up into some sort of credible threat. It`s pathetic and should be given all the attention it deserves – none whatsoever!
