Benfica’s Gonçalo Ramos is one player that could fill the No. 9 role at Paris Saint-Germain. The French giants’ name is in the rumor mill in connection with the Portugal international.
According to Correio da Manha (h/t AS), Benfica president Rui Costa believes the interested clubs will escalate their offers in pursuing Ramos. The 22-year-old’s impressive performances have attracted attention from several top clubs.
The outlet notes that Manchester United, PSG, and Newcastle United have their eyes on Ramos this summer. Ramos’ prolific goal-scoring ability and intelligent movement in the final third are likely why these clubs are interested.
Benfica’s young striker had a breakout 2022-23 seasons, scoring 27 goals and registering 12 assists in 47 appearances in all competitions.
Manchester United, seeking to bolster their attacking options, views Ramos as a long-term investment for their squad. The Red Devils want to add a young, talented striker to their ranks. As a result, Ramos perfectly fits the profile they are looking for.
Similarly, PSG, known for their ambition in the transfer market, have identified Ramos as a promising prospect for their attack. The allure of playing alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappé, should he stay, could be a factor in PSG’s pursuit.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United’s newfound financial resources following a recent ownership change have put them in contention for high-profile signings.
