Chelsea are back to pursuing Benfica star Gonçalo Ramos, according to reports from Portugal.

Newspaper Correio da Manhã today features a story saying the Blues ‘will advance’ to sign the striker in the next summer.

The striker has 19 goals scored by Benfica this season, besides those from the World Cup, and that’s why Chelsea ‘promise’ to try to sign him at the end of the season.

Correio da Manhã claims that the Blues already tried to get the ‘preference’ over Ramos when signing Enzo Fernandez from the Eagles in January, but the Portuguese club denied that at the time.

Either way, the Stamford Bridge side are set to be back for him.

Ramos is protected by a €120m release clause, but unlike with Fernandez, Benfica are set to demand less for him, as the minimum amount for the negotiation is of around €100m.

The newspaper highlights that other Premier League clubs such as Manchester United and Newcastle are also interested in the player.

They claim the striker was ‘close’ to leaving to the Premier League last summer, but with only €30m on the table, that was not enough to take him.
