Championship is the slightly better league. But Che Adams isn't as good as Morelos.

Similar ages, Morelos born in June 1996, Che Adams in July 1996.

Che Adams- 30 goals with 7 assists in 5400 minutes in the last years

Morelos-58 goals and 19 assists in 6800 minutes

Considering that, maybe, through negotiation, you could get Morelos for a similar fee to that of Che Adams, Morelos seems like the better buy. I'm not sure how he'd get a work permit though, as he's not an starting international for Colombia.

Various team from the PL want to take him, so there might be a way

The Championship is a much better standard than Scotland, not slightly

The Queen supports Crystal Palace. Perhaps she'll buy the club then legitimately all the money in England shall be ours. Plus all the swans.

Irrespective of the league they play in, there are always a couple of really good players in the Scottish league.

Moussa Dembele went for £20m last year to Lyon and scored 15 goals for them and he and Morelos have very similar stats in Scotland with the exception of the disciplinary record. If anything, the fact Morelos has missed loads of minutes in games after getting sent off into the first half make his goal tally even more impressive.

When players like Ayoze are going for £30m, £20m for him is a gamble that could pay off massively if he can be kept under control.

He also has the temperament to knock someone out 15 minutes into a game and be banned for half a season.

Depends on if you're the kind of person that sticks or twists on 16.

I disagree. It was until 5-6 years, but with recent financial successes of Celtic, which sold Wanyama for 14 million, Fraser Forster for 12 million, van Dijk for 16 million and Moussa Dembele for 22 million, they were able to bring in talent like PSG's center forward O. Edouard for 10 million, Marvin Shved of Ukraine, Olivier Ntcham, Charly Musonda from Chelsea, Scott Sinclair, Simunovic etc.

This meant that all the players who were playing for Celtic and were not good enough anymore went to sides like Aberdeen and Motherwell etc (Ryan Christie, Kriss Commons, Efe Ambrose etc). This meant that players from Aberdeen or Motherwell were sent to even poorer, relegation threatened squads and so on. There's also been a reduction of the teams in the Scottish league, so the talent is more concentrated.

Celtic absolutely trumped Rosenborg of Norway in the Europe League (check the statistics box):
Away: [Link]

And at home:

They even met twice (once in UCL qualifiers and once in the Europa League):

And they even managed to beat RB Leipzig of Germany, their 3rd place in the Bundesliga: [Link]

Yep - he’s far to much of a loose cannon

He’s skilful enough but he’s a raving nutcase. He’d spend a lot of time suspended.

He has started an International and has 3 or 4 caps but I suspect he may have married a Finnish national whilst playing there

Lots of people on here question VVD’s ability whilst at Celtic and doubted his ability for the Premier League when we were interested in him.

Southampton took a punt and the rest is history!

I could be wrong, but I don't believe this story at all. Makes no sense so I'm guessing it's an agent stirring for a move anywhere or journalists are twiddling thumbs for new transfer rumours

I agree, as bigger clubs have enquired and been rebuffed. They would want a massive wedge as he is essential to their side - and we wouldn't take the risk. Think more bargain basement - the Huddersfield guy or Babacar or some loaner.
