Benfica star Goncalo Ramos certain to leave this summer amid interest from top clubs

Benfica’s young striker Goncalo Ramos is destined to leave the Portuguese giants this summer, as per a report from Diario AS.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a stellar rise to prominence following an eye-catching 2022/23 campaign.

The Portuguese striker racked up a total of 27 goals and 12 assists across all competitions, while his most defining moment was his sensational hat-trick against Switzerland in the 2022 World Cup.

Several clubs are on his trail. He has a contract running until 2025, and Benfica will be looking to extract a hefty fee as they previously did with Joao Felix and Enzo Fernandez.

Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are all in the market for a new striker and have Ramos on their list.

Man United are currently focused on a deal for Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund, who has been earmarked as a top target this summer.

The Red Devils have been locked in talks over the transfer of the Danish striker, and will only turn to Ramos if they fail to secure his services.

Tottenham would need to delve into the market for a new centre-forward if Harry Kane parts ways with the club this summer amid heavy interest from Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians are hellbent on luring the English international to Germany, while the talisman striker is also open to the move in the quest for a new challenge.

Kane’s transfer would entail a large sum of money, and Spurs could easily reinvest in his replacement.

They are also considering a move for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani.

PSG is the most realistic destination for Ramos as they have the financial sources to pull off such a big-money move.

There is also a pressing need for a new prolific goalscorer following the exit of Lionel Messi, while Kylian Mbappe could follow suit.

Les Parisiens also hold the edge over others due to their strong ties with Ramos’ agent Jorge Mendes, who brokered Manuel Ugarte’s move to the French capital earlier this summer.

PSG have been keeping close tabs on Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Kane, but both are out of their reach.
