Southampton: Journalist ‘surprised’ by Ramos transfer news

Southampton: Journalist ‘surprised’ by Ramos transfer news -Southampton News

Journalist Dean Jones has been left ‘surprised’ as Southampton eye a move for Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos this summer.

The Lowdown: Saints keep busy…

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has been backed with an array of summer signings as new owners Sport Republic kickstart a new era at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Saints fans! Do you remember who scored your first goal of the 2021/22 season?

Southampton have sealed arrivals for six players in the form of Gavin Bazanu, Sekou Mara, Romeo Lavia, Armel Bella-Kotchap, Joe Aribo and Mateusz Lis with the Premier League season now underway.

These additions bring vast potential but arguably little experience given the eldest of them, Aribo and Lis, are both just 25-years-old.

The Latest: Jones ‘surprised’ as Saints eye Ramos…

Now, given the latest news with Southampton holding talks over Ramos, reporter Jones has been left ‘surprised’ as the south coast side seemingly eye yet another young starlet.

He explained, speaking to GiveMeSport:

“It’s a really interesting option and he is one they’re looking into.

“I don’t know if he’s exactly what they need, to be honest. I’m surprised they’re not looking at people that are more established in the league or even in Europe.”

The Verdict: Get it done?

Scoring just seven Primeira Liga goals in 17 starts last year for Benfica, we believe Ramos could come with potential but he’s not exactly a prolific figure – so his signing could turn out to be a gamble.

That being said, he averaged 1.9 attempts at goal per 90 domestically over 2021/2022, which is more than almost every Saints player managed in the English top flight bar Adam Armstrong (WhoScored).

If Southampton can bring him through the door, it will be interesting to see whether he can really upgrade Hasenhuttl’s options.
