Nottingham Forest: Goncalo Ramos bid not enough

Nottingham Forest: Goncalo Ramos bid not enough - Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest are reportedly still keen on signing Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos this summer but the Portuguese side aren’t happy with the initial offer.

The Lowdown: Forest linked with Ramos signing

It has been a summer transfer window to treasure at the City Ground, with a whopping 12 exciting signings made after the Reds’ promotion back to the Premier League.

One of several players who has been tipped to be the 13th addition for Forest is Ramos, with recent reports claiming that they have bid €30million (£25.3m) for the 21-year-old.

It looks like a transfer saga that is still alive but one with a slight glitch, following a new update.

The Latest: Bid rejected

According to both Mais Futebol and journalist Bruno Andrade on Twitter [via Sport Witness], Forest’s offer for Ramos isn’t enough to force Benfica to part ways with their player.

The Eagles are thought to be ‘a little reluctant’ to accept the bid but are keen to sell, holding out for more interest from other Premier League clubs.

Which one of these kit manunfactuers have never produced Forest shirts?

The Verdict: Look elsewhere for targets?

The Reds are seemingly shopping for a marquee big signing to round off their impressive summer, also seeing offers rejected for Morgan Gibbs-White.

And Ramos is an impressive striker with a record of 17 goals in 61 appearances for Benfica, but it does feel as though they could end up demanding too much for his services, given they are keen to sell to the highest bidder.

Would Pinamonti be a good signing for Forest?

It would require Forest to comfortably break their transfer record of £18.45m set by Taiwo Awoniyi earlier this summer and spending so much on one player could be deemed a risk.

Instead, the Reds would be better off looking at other potential attacking targets who could complement the likes of Awoniyi and Brennan Johnson, perhaps someone like last year’s popular loanee Keinan Davis.
