Wolves: Bruno Lage denies offer for Goncalo Ramos

Wolves: Bruno Lage denies offer for Goncalo Ramos -Wolves News

During his latest press conference, Wolves manager Bruno Lage denied rumours suggesting that the club had made an offer for Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos.

The Lowdown: Ramos rumours

According to a report by newspaper Jornal de Notícias (via Sport Witness), the Old Gold are one of the Premier League clubs interested in signing the 21-year-old forward.

Wolves reportedly join the likes of  Newcastle, Southampton, Everton and Leeds in the race to secure Ramos’ signature.

The Portugal under-21 international is in strong demand after netting four goals in three Champions League qualifiers this season.

The Latest: Lage’s comments

Contrary to reports, Lage has dismissed the rumours linking Wolves with an offer for the Benfica striker.

Speaking during Friday’s press conference, the 46-year-old claimed (as quoted by The Athletic): “We’re still looking for a striker. In the last few days I have received so many messages about (Ramos).

“People send me videos on Portuguese TV that I call the player and Wolves make the offer, but I didn’t talk with him. I ask my chairman and no offer for him.

“Of course, who doesn’t want to have this kind of player, but we have our own profile and we have more targets for that position.”

The Verdict: Sign him up

While Liverpool summer signing Darwin Nunez was the main goal threat for Benfica last season, having impressively netted 26 times in the league, Ramos was still able to contribute seven goals and two assists.

The 21-year-old averaged 1.9 shots and 0.8 key passes and dribbles per game last term (via WhoScored), illustrating his importance to the Portuguese giants as their second striker.

Is Ramos the striker that Wolves need?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Last year, football talent scout Jacek Kulig hailed Ramos’ 14 goals over a period of nine Benfica B appearances as ‘outrageous’, highlighting the player’s clinical nature in front of goal.

Therefore, if Wolves do end up making a move for the striker, he could be a great addition to Lage’s goal-shy squad.
