Leeds: Whites interested in Goncalo Ramos

Leeds: Whites interested in Goncalo Ramos -Leeds United News

Leeds United are thought to be interested in a move for Newcastle United transfer target Goncalo Ramos.

The Lowdown: Ramos profiled

Ramos is primarily a centre-forward who can also play in a deeper role and currently plies his trade with Benfica.

The 21-year-old has started the 2022/23 campaign on fire in front of goal, scoring once every 70 minutes. The Portuguese forward now has 18 goals in 63 Benfica appearances and has been described by broadcaster Andy Sixsmith as a player who is ‘brilliant in the air’, and it looks as if the Whites are keen on his services.

The Latest: Leeds linked with Ramos

Sport Witness relayed an update from newspaper Jornal de Noticias regarding Ramos on Tuesday.

They claimed that Newcastle are set to make a €40m (£33.6m) offer for the Benfica marksman, with Leeds, Everton, Southampton and Wolves also keen on the player.

The Verdict: Time is ticking

The Whites appear to be fairly relaxed when it comes to further incomings, but following recent injury scares involving Patrick Bamford and Joe Gelhardt, a new forward seems to be needed before the transfer deadline.

Where will Leeds finish this season?

Ramos could be a shrewd signing both in the short-term and long run as he is clearly an exciting talent who is now producing the goods on the senior stage, with a hat-trick in a recent Champions League qualifier against Midtjylland highlighting his development.

The money is there at Elland Road to rival Newcastle for Ramos following the club’s €40m (£33.65m) offer for Charles De Ketelaere earlier in the summer, so it’ll be interesting to see if they move for the Benfica star over the coming days.
