With the season now in its final rush, at home Roma it is already time to think about next year. Of course, he will still be leading the Giallorossi Jose Mourinho who, thanks to the help of Tiago Pinto, intends to strengthen the squad to be able to compete on even higher levels.
Lo Special One and the sporting director are looking once again in Portugal, their country of origin and a breeding ground of great talent. According to various newspapers, the latest fashion name in the Trigoria offices is that of Gonçalo Ramos2000 class striker under Benfica.
On the talent that this season has scored 8 goals between the league and Champions League there is the interest of several clubs, but the presence of Mourinho could give the Giallorossi a preferential lane. So let’s get to know Ramos better, Roma’s new goal.
Gonçalo Matias Ramos was born on June 20, 2001 in Olhão, a small village directly overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Like any self-respecting Portuguese child, he immediately starts playing football and at an early age enters theOlhanensethe local team.
There, given his extraordinary technical qualities, he was deployed above all as a mezzala. Sometimes we find him proposed as an attacking midfielder with the task of inspiring the strikers. However, his accomplishing qualities cannot be ignored and when the Benfica he hires him in 2013 he starts playing closer to the goal.
With the Eagles he crossed the entire youth sector, always making himself noticed thanks to his goals. His efforts are rewarded with the debut among the professionals: it is 2019 when Ramos is sent into the fray to decide the match between the B team of Benfica and that of Braga in a match valid for the Portuguese second series. At the same time, the 2001 class began to dominate also at a European level. In UEFA Youth League in that year he scored 8 goals, taking home the title of top scorer (on a par with Piccoli from Atalanta).
On 21 July 2020 he made his debut in Primeira Liga, taking over from Pizzi in the home match against Desportivo das Aves. The attacker takes a few minutes to score a brace in the final 4-0. As the portal writes Minute News, “The boy taught a real lesson (of effectiveness, of reading) to older strikers like Carlos Vinícius, Dyego Sousa and Seferovic”.
This year Gonçalo Ramos has experienced the season of consecration: not only has he entered on a permanent basis in the rotations of the first team, but he has also signed the renewal of his contract with Benfica until 2026. 7 league goalsbut the goal that will remain in his heart the longest is the one he scored against Liverpool at Anfield in Champions League.
At home Gonçalo Ramos is compared to another young man who showed off in Benfica: Joao Felix. Like the Atletico Madrid striker, he loves to play as a second striker and do various on the offensive front, still managing to arrive lucidly in the goal area.
Of course, given his young age, he still has to improve in the management of his forces and in his choices in crucial moments: all things that can be learned with experience. Thanks to his nose for goals, he can also be used as a first striker, but given his overall characteristics, it would be better to let him play in an offensive tandem.
But the question arises spontaneously: what can he give to Rome? Should his move to the Giallorossi take place, Ramos would play the role of vice-Abraham or, in an emergency, he could even play alongside the English striker.
