Another quality striker
Dwight Gayle has definitely been brilliant, and currently tops the goalscoring charts with 19 goals.
The former Crystal Palace striker has been responsible for 37% of all Newcastle’s goals, with the 2nd highest goalscorer in the club being Yoan Gouffran – who has scored 4 goals.
Backup strikers Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Ayoze Perez have 3 each despite seeing a sizeable amount of playing time. Gayle isn’t always scoring even though he tries to, and none of the substitute centre forwards turns up just when they are needed most.
Newcastle can’t always depend on Gayle for the goals, and a quality and proven goalscorer suiting the team’s style of play must be acquired this winter in order to take the pressure and heavy work load off the English talisman.
