Bruno Lage is plotting a raid on his former club Benfica to bolster his Wolves attack, according to a report from Portugal.

O Novo report that the Old Gold are interested in forward Gonçalo Ramos.

The report claims that another Premier League club is keen on him too, but they are unnamed.

Ramos is still just 19 but performed well at the UEFA Under 21 European Championship.

He scored and set up another goal during the tournament as Portugal made it to the final, where they were beaten by Germany.

Ramos has a 120 million euro (£103 million) release clause but of course Wolves would be looking at paying a lot less than that.

Lage had a reputation for bringing through young players while he was at Benfica, such as Joao Felix.


He’ll be aware of Ramos’ capabilities and as a former youth coach, would back himself to develop him effectively.

Is another starlet what Wolves need?

Ramos may well have a huge future in the game ahead of him, just like Fabio Silva.

But Wolves fans may well be asking themselves if another raw, young forward is what Lage really needs this summer.

You’d think that an experienced centre half and central midfielder would be the priorities.

But Lage will know a lot about Ramos and if he thinks he’s a worthwhile signing, then so be it.
