Will Davie Selke's possible contribution be beneficial or would it be better for the New York Red Bulls to invest in another type of player?

The New York Red Bulls are eyeing FC Köln striker Davie Selke as a potential addition to their squad. With 21 appearances and six goals in the 2023/24 season, Selke brings the experience of playing in a competitive league like the Bundesliga, which could be an interesting asset for RBNY.

RBNY's top scorer is currently Lewis Morgan, with nine goals in 16 games, followed by Emil Forsberg with six in 14 games. Selke could offer a central option, capable of complementing these players and adding depth to the attack. Although RBNY boasts the second-best offense in the Western Conference, trailing only Inter Miami, Selke’s addition could further elevate the team’s offensive performance.

However, the question remains: is Selke the best signing to make? With a goal average that, while respectable, is not stellar, RBNY needs to consider if he is the player who can take the team to the next level. Selke has the experience of a competitive league but would need time to adapt to the MLS style of play.

On the other hand, his arrival could provide more minutes on the field and the opportunity to establish himself as a consistent scorer in the league. If utilized well, Selke could become a valuable asset in the New York Red Bulls' attack, bringing not only goals but also experience from a tough league like the Bundesliga.

The New York Red Bulls need to decide whether they want to bet on an established player like Selke or seek an emerging talent that can grow and evolve with the team. Either way, Selke's inclusion in the squad would be an interesting and potentially beneficial addition.
