The question today is: ‘Will Newcastle buy a striker who will score more goals next season than Aleksandar Mitrovic for Fulham?’
The Serbian international at last completed his transfer to Craven Cottage on Monday for a reported £22m, that is claimed could rise to £27m if hitting certain targets.
This isn’t a debate about whether or not Mitrovic should or shouldn’t have been sold, or whether he could/would have scored goals if staying and playing at St James Park.
What it is, is whether you are confident Newcastle United / Rafa Benitez will be able to bring in a striker in these next nine days, who is capable of scoring more goals than Mitro will for Fulham this coming season?
Last season, Newcastle’s top Premier League scorer was Ayoze Perez with eight, then Dwight Gayle on six.
So will Yoshinori Muto be able to outscore Aleksandar Mitrovic, once his work permit clears.
Alternatively, will Salomon Rondon (or whoever else comes in – if anybody…) be able to outdo Mitrovic in the goals department in 2018/19?
So how confident are you that the amount of money available and/or Rafa’s expertise, will give Newcastle a good enough goalscorer for the season ahead?
