In the wake of the David Turnbull news, Motherwell are going after fresh attacking outlets. According to the Scottish Sun, the Steelmen are targeting Celtic wide duo Michael Johnston and Lewis Morgan.
The report claims that Stephen Robinson wants to bring one of the already mentioned Celtic wingers to Fir Park next season.
Motherwell desperately need a couple of reinforcements out on the flanks, and in attacking areas in general.
Out of both Johnston and Morgan, who fits the North Lanarkshire side best?
The winner? It has to be Johnston
Lewis Morgan is a decent talent. He shined whilst in the Championship with St Mirren and it earned him his big move to Parkhead.
He never done much when he eventually appeared though, making nine league appearances with no goal contributions. A loan spell to Sunderland proved to be an inconsistent one, failing to get properly going in Wearside.
Perhaps Morgan is more experienced overall than Johnston is, but it is the latter who Motherwell should target.
Johnston is a great young talent. He’s quick and skillful, proving on the final league day against Hearts he has what it takes to make it in the Scottish top flight, by notching a brilliant double.
In 14 matches last season in the league he scored five goals from 14 games, whilst only making seven starts. That’s more than Connor Sammon and Curtis Main scored collectively last term in claret and amber.
Incredibly quick and nimble, Johnston is a similar player to former Well loanee Gboly Ariyibi. The only difference is that Johnston actually has end product. They could be getting the full winger package with him.
Johnston needs consistent first team minutes and Motherwell need a winger. It would only be a loan deal , but Johnstone would be a brilliant loan signing for the Steelmen.
