Chelsea make promise to move for Goncalo Ramos

Chelsea make promise to move for Goncalo Ramos - Chelsea News

Chelsea have made a promise to bring Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos to the Premier League this summer, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Aubameyang replacement?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is currently facing an uncertain future having been heavily linked with an exit in January, so Graham Potter needs to bolster his attacking ranks should the forward depart at the end of the term.

Ramos, a Portugal international, reportedly emerged as a target for the Blues last month, and despite a deal failing to materialise, it sounds like Todd Boehly has since vowed to make a serious approach.

The Latest: Chelsea eyeing Ramos

According to Correio da Manha (via Sport Witness), Chelsea ‘will advance’ on a deal for Ramos this summer and have made a ‘promise’ to attempt to secure his services.

The Stamford Bridge outfit tried to get the ‘preference’ over the 21-year-old when signing his former teammate Enzo Fernandez, but Benfica declined the move.

The 6 foot 1 forward has a €120m (£105m) release clause included in his deal, but it’s claimed that his club would only demand a minimum fee of €100m (£88m) to let him go.

Should Chelsea sign Goncalo Ramos?

Yes, he'd be perfect!

The Verdict: Splash the cash

Ramos has been dubbed a ‘lethal’ striker by talent scout Jacek Kulig and Chelsea should definitely splash out should the opportunity to sign him arise in the months ahead.

The Nike-sponsored star has had a remarkable return so far this season having recorded 13 goals and four assists in just 17 Liga Portugal appearances.

The Olhao native is also averaging a whopping 3.5 shots per league game and ranks in the 98th percentile for non-penalty expected goals and non-penalty expected goals plus assisted goals.

Ramos is the exact profile of clinical centre-forward that Potter has been missing so would be the perfect candidate to put pen to paper in SW6 ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.
