Goncalo Ramos has been a revelation in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, with the Benfica striker catching the eye of many top clubs across Europe. Arsenal are one such club, with the Gunners reportedly interested in the 21-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window, according to a report from Football.London.
Ramos’ Impressive Campaign With Benfica So Far This Season
Ramos has already shown that he can make a difference for his team, scoring seventeen goals and providing three assists in 39 appearances this season across all fronts. His impressive form has earned him much attention from many European clubs seeking his services.
The Olhao-born talent has been consistent and reliable in the final third after averaging 3.1 shots, 1.1 clearances, 0.6 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game in the Portuguese top flight. Nevertheless, his coordination with other players in the attacking third needs improvement, as reflected in his pass accuracy of 73% in the Primeira Liga. (stats via whoscored).
Should Arteta Bring Him To Arsenal?
Ramos is a clinical finisher with a keen eye for goals and the ability to score from a variety of positions. He is also a tireless worker, constantly pressing and making the opposition defenders uncomfortable, which is a nightmare for any backline to deal with.
Ramos has excellent movement off the ball and is capable of finding space in tight areas, making him a real asset to any team that plays with a possession-based style of play. Arsenal have felt the absence of a dedicated goal scorer as the team has missed several opportunities to score throughout the season, making the Portuguese international a perfect fit for Mikel Arteta.
At just 21 years of age, Ramos still has a lot of room for improvement, but he has already shown that he has the potential to become a top striker. Arsenal would benefit greatly from his presence in their squad. If the North London club can secure the signature of Goncalo Ramos this summer, they will have added a young, hungry and talented striker to their ranks who has the potential to become a real star in the Premier League.
