Former Everton striker Kevin Campbell believes that the signing of Rangers’ Alfredo Morelos would be a smart move for the club.
Morelos is set to leave Rangers this summer when his contract expires and has been linked with a move to Everton.
Campbell thinks that Morelos’ style of play would be appreciated by Everton fans as he has an “edge” to his game.
Campbell further explained that Morelos would have a point to prove if he joins Everton, which could benefit the team.
The Colombian striker has faced criticism for his discipline and behavior on and off the pitch, but Campbell thinks that he could channel this energy in a positive way at Everton.
He added that Morelos has shown his ability to score goals and would be a valuable addition to Everton’s attack. With the right guidance and management, he could be a success at the club.
While there is no official confirmation of Morelos’ transfer to Everton, Campbell’s endorsement of the potential move could sway the opinion of some fans who may have concerns about his past disciplinary issues.
Overall, it seems that Campbell believes that Morelos could be a good fit for Everton and that his style of play and desire to prove himself could make him a valuable asset to the team.
“The key is can you create opportunities for him? If you can then he looks like he could take chances.
“That one might be a little bit more of a longer shot, but someone like him it’s going to be difficult to just go to anywhere.
“That might be a smart shout to be honest, it might just be a smart shout because he likes to prove himself and he’s got that edge.”
In light of Everton’s need for a new striker and Morelos’ search for a new team, the speculation around his personal preference was fueled by his recent appearance in an Everton shirt.
Morelos is departing Rangers after a lackluster season, having received mixed reviews in Scotland, but he could benefit from having a point to prove in his next destination.
Furthermore, his aggressive style of play could be exactly what Everton needs to fill the void left by Richarlison’s departure, as it hasn’t been replaced in their attack.
If the price is right and he ends up in the appropriate division next season, the potential match could be a perfect fit.
