'Lage has already made the call': Wolves could follow Nunes signing with 'prolific' £29.5m striker - journalist
Wolverhampton Wanderers are seemingly closing in on the signing of Matheus Nunes.
Bruno Lage’s side will reportedly pay an initial £38m plus £4.2m in add-ons for the 23-year-old.
But there may yet be more good news for Wolves fans, according to Pedro Sepulveda.
The Portuguese journalist told Sky Sports today that the Molineux outfit is pushing to sign Goncalo Ramos.
“Lage has told Ramos he wants him at Wolves”
Sepulveda also revealed that Wolves boss Bruno Lage had spoken to the Benfica star about a move to Molineux.
He began by speaking about Southampton’s interest in Ramos before moving onto Wolves’ pursuit of the player.
“I can tell you Southampton were in Denmark when Benfica played against Midtjylland in the Champions League [earlier this month],” said Sepulveda.
“And Southampton had a meeting with Benfica president Rui Costa to know the price of the player and find out Benfica’s conditions to make this deal.
“Wolves want the player too and some weeks ago they made an offer to Benfica and that offer was a loan, worth €5m (£4.2m) with an obligation to buy around €30m (£25.3m).
“I can also reveal that Wolves boss Bruno Lage has already made the call to Ramos to know if he wants to join Wolves because they’ve already worked together and Lage has told Ramos he wants him at Wolves.”
‘One of Europe’s top attacking prospects’
Wolves recently signed Goncalo Guedes from Valencia.
However, it is thought that Lage would like to add a natural centre-forward to his squad before the window closes.
Ramos is an ‘exciting forward rated as one of Europe’s top attacking prospects’, according to The Sun.
The 21-year-old burst onto the scene last season with eight goals and four assists from 46 games.
And this term, Ramos already has three goals and three assists from three games.
He has also impressed at international Under-21 level, with 14 goals in just 18 games for Portugal’s U21s.
Football talent scout Jacek Kulig lauded Ramos in 2020, calling him “incredibly prolific” on Twitter.
As well as Wolves, the likes of Crystal Palace, Everton, Leeds, West Ham and Newcastle have been linked with Ramos.
