Newcastle fans react in mixed way to interest in Alfredo Morelos

Alfredo Morelos is a bit of a controversial character up in Scotland. For all his quality and the plaudits he receives, he has a dark side to his game too.

A red card against Celtic in Rangers’ recent win over their rivals sums that up perfectly. It was his seventh for the Gers and for all the goals he scores, 28 already this season, it casts a doubt on his ability to deliver.

Despite that, Steve Bruce is interested in the forward according to the Daily Star, and that has sparked debate amongst the Magpies’ fanbase as to whether or not he’d be a good signing.

With so many goals under his belt this term he’d surely be an upgrade on the likes of Joelinton and Andy Carroll, who have one goal between them, but many supporters can’t look past his poor discipline.

His second yellow card last Sunday was for simulation, which highlights the careless decision-making that has acted as a plague on his game, but if he eradicates that he could be a very good addition for Newcastle.

Even if he has played at a lower standard his goal record proves his finishing capability, and the confidence he must have should allow him to continue firing in the Premier League.
