Gonçalo Ramos: The Rising Star of Benfica Football Club

Gonçalo Ramos has been making waves as a striker for Benfica Football Club, and the rest of the football World is taking notice. The young Portuguese player has not only enjoyed a successful stint in the World Cup, but he has also made a name for himself in Liga Portugal, leading the league with 15 goals in just 19 games.

At just 21 years old, Ramos has shown a maturity beyond his years, taking on the challenge of being the undisputed starting striker for Benfica and delivering remarkable performances week after week. His work rate and finishing ability have been praised by the likes of Benfica expert Adrian Sousa, who notes that Ramos is not just a striker who waits for service; instead, he utilizes his pace to make dynamic runs and works hard in the press when out of possession.

Furthermore, Ramos has shown versatility in his style of play, being able to feature as a second striker or attacking midfielder when paired with Darwin Núñez last season. His ability to drop deep and impose himself on the ball more shows his control, passing ability, and vision, making him a central figure in Roger Schmidt’s attacking strategies.

However, one question mark on Ramos’ productivity is his performance in the Champions League this season, having scored only one goal and two assists in seven games. Sousa notes that Ramos sometimes struggles to make the easy finishes, and although he has showed remarkable performances in the past, his ceiling has yet to be determined.

Despite the uncertainties, Ramos’ market value has continued to increase, currently standing at €40m, with an exit clause of €120m. Sousa believes significant interest from Man United and Bayern Munich could spark potential bidding wars for Ramos’ services, making him an attractive asset for any team in need of a reliable striker.

As he continues to impress and make his mark in the football World, Ramos’ potential is undeniable, and his rising star status is an exciting prospect for Benfica and Portuguese football.
