Benfica’s Gonçalo Ramos strong candidate for Roma’s attack

Andy Mattioli

Roma are eying Benfica attacker Gonçalo Ramos in this summer window after initial talks between the two clubs were initiated earlier in the year.

According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla’ – given the Giallorossi’s on-going negotiations with Juventus over Nicolo’ Zaniolo – the capital club are already thinking of replacing the 22-year-old with several other names.

Among those is Ramos, 21-year-old forward from Portugal, who last season scored eight goals and collected one assist across all competitions. Ramos is well liked by Mourinho due to his versatility, and could represent a cheaper alternative to Roma’s priority for the attack – Valencia’s Gonçalo Guedes.

Pedulla’ reports that Roma have resumed contact with the player’s entourage and Benfica’s demands for Ramos amount to €18-20 million.
