Rafa Benitez must think about handing Elias Sorensen a chance in the first-team.
The youngster is in a rich vein of form having hit his eighth goal of the season for the U23s on Tuesday night against Notts County in the Checkatrade Trophy.
The Dane has been developing in the Newcastle academy since moving from HB Koge two years ago, and is one of the club’s most promising talents.
Last season he hit 12 goals for the U18s, and his abilities in front of goal are clear to see.
The Newcastle first-team is obviously struggling at the moment.
Especially in the goalscoring department, with Benitez’s side having only managed six goals in eight games.
Sorensen could become fan favourite
Not only does Sorensen have exciting potential on the pitch, but he also may have what it takes to prove a hit with the Magpies faithful.
The 19-year-old striker appears to be very hard working and industrious on the pitch.
These are always things that can endear a player to the home crowd.
He also appears to have developed a slight Geordie accent, which is sure to go down tremendously with fans.
It’s certainly a sign that Sorensen is now settled in England after a tricky start.
There’s a every chance Sorensen could become the second succesful Dane to feature at St. James’ Park after Peter Lovenkrands, who is something of a cult hero in the eyes of many.
The winger can certainly serve as inspiration for the exciting youngster.
