The report is pretty dubious, as it even suggested that the Magpies also want to sign Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez. That’s ludicrous for multiple reasons.
But regardless of the reliability of the source, Newcastle fans have started to discuss the possibility of the Colombian forward wearing black and white.
Morelos had an interesting season at Ibrox. Sure, he was red hot in front of goal, but he spent a lot of the time suspended. It’s fair to say the striker has got a temper that can get the better of him…
But as a pure goalscorer, Morelos has had an excellent year. He ended the campaign with 18 league goals to win him the Scottish Premiership golden boot. Imagine if he hadn’t been suspended as much!
At 22-years-old, he’s got a long career ahead of him, and surely has a higher ceiling than Rangers. This isn’t the first time he’s been linked with a move away from the blue side of Glasgow, but will this summer see him move down south to the Premier League?
Newcastle certainly need a striker this summer, and fans have discussed the possibility of signing him on Twitter. But it seems that his discipline is putting people off…
Newcastle fans think Morelos is just another Mitrovic
I don’t want Morelos anywhere near Newcastle.

Christ.. more red cards than Mitro.

He’s a liability, proper hot head

If Rafa is still in charge there’s no chance this will happen. Exactly the same reason he got rid of Mitro. Bloke is a liability.

Worse than Mitrovic as far as discipline goes, not a Rafa player at all. ⚫️⚪️
