Leeds United presenter Joe Wainman has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of the Yorkshire club making a move to sign reported target Jens Cajuste from FC Midtjylland during the current summer transfer window.
On the subject of a potential move for Cajuste this summer, Wainman had this to say on the matter.
He said: “Would I like Jens Cajuste from what I’ve heard and what I know?
“I’ve not seen him play regularly – obviously, I did the Euros watch-alongs, he’s a kid with a lot of talent and a great future ahead of him.
“For me, I think the positive thing now moving forward is we’re going to see movement from Leeds United in the centre-midfield position. Conor Gallagher’s chosen Crystal Palace, we know that we’re interested in Yangel Herrera – or we believe we are. I think Jens Cajuste is one we’re definitely interested in, so maybe we’ll see quick movement in that area.”
Since then, the 21-year-old, who is currently valued at £4.5 million according to Transfermarkt, has made 69 senior appearances for Midtjylland, scoring two goals and providing two assists in the process.
TIF Thoughts on Joe Wainman’s comments on a potential move for Cajuste…
With fellow reported midfield target Conor Gallagher supposedly deciding to join Crystal Palace on loan rather than Leeds, this could potentially push the club towards making a move to sign Cajuste before the upcoming 2021/22 season starts.
Do you think Leeds need to sign a midfielder this summer?
In our view, with Leeds only currently having four centre-midfield players in their squad that play in that position – which includes Adam Forshaw, who has been out of action since September 2019 with a serious hip injury, perhaps signing Cajuste this summer would be a good move for the club to add some extra depth in that position.
