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.
