Newcastle United are set to be boosted by the return of their star striker, Callum Wilson, amid the final few games of the season.
Do NUFC need a new main striker for next season?
On Tuesday, Wilson posted a compilation video of some of his goals from this season and captioned the post with a ‘charging emoji’ and ‘hourglass emoji’.
Eddie Howe’s men only have three games remaining of the 2021/22 campaign with very little to play for now other than a spot in the top half of the table.
So we will be interested to see what role Wilson may play in the upcoming games with Chris Wood dropped to the bench in their recent game against Liverpool on the weekend.
TIF Thoughts on Kennedy’s tweet…
This will obviously be good news to everyone involved at Newcastle given Wilson is still their top goalscorer this season despite missing a huge chunk of the season.
However, it does raise the question as to whether Wilson will be Howe’s main striker next season given he has proven unreliable in terms of availability throughout the season?
There is no doubting his ability given he was the top scorer last season, too. But missing large chunks of the season on a regular basis has made him an unreliable member of the squad when planning ahead with big targets set by the new owners.
