Journalist Josh Holland has stated that Wolves are more likely to sign someone like Goncalo Ramos to fulfill their striker issue this summer.
With the worst attack in the Premier League last season outside of the bottom three signing a striker will no doubt be high on Bruno Lage’s wish list this summer.
Back in May talkSPORT claimed that the club were willing to sell Mexican talisman Raul Jimenez should their £15m valuation be met but up until this point no bidders have come forward.
However, with 20-year-old record signing Fabio Silva now joining Anderlecht on a season-long loan deal Lage is in need of firepower.
They have been credited with an interest in Inter Milan centre-forward Edin Dzeko but Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade has said that Silva’s departure has led to the Old Gold reverting their attention to Ramos who is valued at £34 (€40m) by his current club Benfica.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claimed that the Molineux outfit would face competition from PSG and Holland has warned Wolves’ that their unopposed days of shopping on the Portuguese market could be over although a deal for Ramos does seem plausible.
He told GIVEMESPORT:
“A striker from the Portuguese league always seemed more likely than someone like Dzeko.
“I think the problem that Wolves are going to face is, a lot of teams are now venturing into the Portuguese division. You look at Arsenal with Fabio Vieira, PSG who got Nuno Mendes from Sporting, and PSG again with Vitinha, who Wolves should have signed.”
TIF Thoughts on Ramos and Wolves…
Could Wolves be in a relegation battle?
While Nathan Collins has been brought in to reinforce the defence at the Midlands club, securing a goalscorer will be a priority for sure and Ramos could sort out Lage’s blunt attack.
He did play second fiddle to Darwin Nunez at the Eagles last season but still weighed in with eight goals and four assists in 25 starts.
One of those strikes came against Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals but while his minutes were restricted at club level the 6 ft 1 sharp-shooter showed his class at the international level scoring 12 goals and creating another two in 10 appearances for Portugal’s U21 side during European Championship qualifying.
