Wolves: Ramos and Neto can form exciting duo

Wolverhampton Wanderers are plotting a move for Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos this summer, a player who manager Bruno Lage knows very well.

According to claims made by one Portuguese-speaking journalist on Twitter recently, Wolves re-opened talks for the player who they initially were interested in signing last season.

Should Wolves sign Ramos?





He’s seen as “negotiable” by Benfica who would be willing to let him leave for a fee of €40m (£34m), and Wolves are one of several clubs interested in his services along with Paris Saint-Germain and Nottingham Forest.

Ramos is a player that the Old Gold manager Lage has worked with before, during his spell as manager of Benfica he appeared on the bench a number of times.

This might give them an advantage, but if Wolves are really serious about signing him then they need to move fast or they risk missing out.

Throughout his career, the 21-year-old has scored 44 goals in 114 appearances and has earnt praise from many, including Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig who has dubbed him “incredibly prolific.”

If he could replicate his goalscoring form for the Old Gold then just imagine the firepower they would have up front. One of the players he could partner with would be his compatriot Pedro Neto, and they could form an exciting duo.

Neto didn’t feature too many times for Wolves last season due to injury, but in the games he did play he proved exactly why they would work well together.

The 22-year-old created three big chances in just 13 games which is the same as Ramos created all season. Their similar age also means that they would be able to develop together and lead the line for Wolves into the future.

At what football club's academy did Wolves captain Conor Coady graduate from?

Neto scored an impressive pass accuracy percentage of 85% per game and he could link up well with Ramos who averages 1.9 shots per game.

It’s a transfer that makes a lot of sense, and with rumours circling that the out-of-favour striker Fabio Silva could leave Molineux in a bid to rejuvenate his career, Wolves could need depth going forward.

They should look no further than Ramos to provide that.
