Wolverhampton Wanderers new manager Bruno Lage is keen on a deal for Benfica youngster Gonçalo Ramos, but the club are eyeing alternative strikers.
That’s according to A Bola, who say Benfica have ‘received offers’ for the 19-year-old despite his lack of first-team action.
Earlier today, we covered a report from O Jogo that stated Wolves were in the picture for Ramos, who they said was ‘being attacked by English clubs’ this summer.
Benfica president Luís Filipe Vieira was said to have already received several proposals, but none of them were considered high enough for a player with a €120m release clause.
A Bola now back this up and say Benfica have offers on the table for the 19-year-old, who worked under Jorge Jesus last year but was rarely used in the first-team.
The Portuguese side will only sanction an exit if they receive a ‘very high-value proposal’, certainly over €30m.
New Wolves boss Lage ‘likes the young forward very much’ but the club are in the market for a ‘spearhead with a different role’ and reports in England have linked them to Diego Costa.
Like the previous report, this very much feels like Benfica letting the world know they have another gem on their hands and hoping someone will come in for him.
At the minute, it seems they think their best hope is someone in the Premier League, and obviously that’s led them to Wolves, given their links to Jorge Mendes.
