Everton must swoop to sign Goncalo Ramos

Everton will have been one of plenty of Premier League teams that welcomed the World Cup-enforced break, having lost their last three in all competitions.

They sit just one point from safety, in a position that will feel eerily familiar to Evertonians who suffered last season as they narrowly avoided the drop.

Many have their theories as to why the Toffees are underperforming once again, considering their vast summer overhaul that welcomed eight new faces to Goodison Park.

However, most would come to agree that the lack of a focal point up front has hindered them heavily.

It was common knowledge that Dominic Calvert-Lewin was an unreliable option given his injury history, so the addition of Neal Maupay seemed like smart business.

But with just one goal and an invisible physical presence has seen the transfer questioned already, with calls for extra reinforcements this January.

Perhaps Frank Lampard could consider moving in for an exciting young talent with which they spent most of the summer interested in, as Goncalo Ramos looks to gear up with Portugal for their World Cup campaign.

90min noted their interest alongside a host of Premier League clubs, with the report detailing Crystal Palace, Leeds United, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

More recently, Benfica were noted to value the youngster at €40m (£35m).

Although this would mark a significant outlay for a club renowned for their financial issues, it could be an incredible investment as he jets off to Qatar.

1. Starting off, can you guess the career path of this former Everton star?

The 21-year-old is currently enjoying a blistering start to the season for his club, with 14 goals and six assists across 21 games in all competitions.

He actually boasts more goals than every single Everton player put together this season, which truly outlines how clinical he has been this season.

Although he will likely play second string to Cristiano Ronaldo, there will likely be chances for Ramos to show why Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulik dubbed him “incredibly prolific”.

He can surely be the surprise package at this World Cup, and Kevin Thelwell should definitely consider another move for this talented finisher who justifies his price tag with consistency in front of goal.
