That’s according to 90min, who claim that the Benfica forward has been attracting huge amounts of attention and could be set to follow Darwin Nunez in a move to the Premier League.
With Christian Benteke having finally departed Selhurst Park after a wholly underwhelming six-year spell, whoever should come in to replace him will not have the toughest of tasks matching his goal tally.
To sign this young Portuguese starlet for just £3m more than what Palace first spent to sign the Belgian from Liverpool would prove a huge coup, and he would only have to outscore 37 goals in 177 appearances to mark him as more successful.
It will therefore be music to Eagles fans’ ears that they are in for a talented forward who has been dubbed “incredibly prolific”, supported by his blistering start to the new season with three goals and three assists in three games.
Last season, despite scoring seven, he still missed a further 12 big chances. He clearly has the poacher’s instinct to be in the right spot for clear chances, which is more promising than damning as the finishing ability will come with more experience.
This season could mark a breakout one, so Patrick Vieira may want to invest early in the 21-year-old before his value skyrockets.
Benteke did often impress with his hold-up play, using his brute strength to hold off defenders and bring in teammates.
Standing at 6 foot tall, Ramos is not exactly small, but still possesses enough physicality to do that job whilst still having the technical ability to link play in a different way to how the departed 31-year-old would.
He could very much represent Benteke’s dream heir both in terms of goals and link-up play, and would mark a shrewd piece of business that does not attach the youngster to an astronomical price tag to weigh him down.
