Speaking at his press conference on Friday, Giovanni van Bronckhorst stated that he wanted to keep Jorgensen but also confirmed that they are looking for a new forward should he depart.

He said when asked if he was hoping to sign a replacement, “Yes, how do you do that?” You have a list of possible successors, but you are dependent on many factors, and I now wait for information from Martin (Van Geel). “
