Wolves transfer news: PSG join hunt to sign Goncalo Ramos

Wolves reportedly now face competition to sign Goncalo Ramos from PSG.

Fabrizio Romano has this afternoon reported that the French giants have expressed an interest in the Benfica striker.

He’s on their shortlist, alongside Hugo Ekitike of Reims.

Gianluca Scamacca is their priority, but PSG have no intention of paying Sassuolo’s £42.3 million asking price.

Ramos was recently linked with a move to Molineux.

UOL Esporte journalist Bruno Andrade reported that Wolves were set to reopen negotiations with Benfica, having been interested in the player a year ago.

The player is seen as ‘negotiable’ by Benfica.

Lage knows the youngster well having named him on his bench several times during his time as Benfica’s head coach.

The 46-year-old would leave the club, with Ramos eventually making his first-team debut a short while after.

The Wolves-Ramos links emerged after reports suggested Fabio Silva was set to join Anderlecht on loan.

The 19-year-old – who is apparently valued at £34 million by Benfica (Record) – has been left out of Wolves’ pre-season squad, presumably to finalise his exit.

If Wolves see Ramos as Silva’s replacement, then the club may now need to get a move on with PSG registering their interest.

Wolves would surely be a much better move for Ramos than PSG

Ramos would surely be better served joining Wolves this summer than a club like PSG.

The Parisians have Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar as forward options, as well as Mauro Icardi, Julian Draxler and Pablo Sarabi in reserve.

Ramos’ potential for minutes would be much less there than at Molineux.

Assuming Silva leaves Wolves, that leaves Raul Jimenez as the only centre-forward.

He would get plenty of game time, which is obviously crucial for a player his age.

And then there is the Portuguese contingent at Molineux. Being among so many fellow countryman is bound to help Ramos thrive.
