Benfica set to give young striker Ramos a look

Benfica Blog
With this seasons completion still up in the air as in when and where the league may be able to finish it up due to COVID-19, it has not stopped Benfica's coaching staff from thinking of steps to improve the club for next season. Benfica look set to promote another Seixal Academy product with secondary striker Goncalo Ramos' ready to make the move to the main squad. The 18 year old would slip into a role similar to what Jonas and Joao Felix played with the squad in previous years under a 4-4-2 system. Ramos was one of 60 finalists for the recent Golden Boy award won by Joao Felix and was the golden boot winner as a member of Portugal's U19 finalist squad in the recent 2019 U19 European Championship. Ramos has also been a key member of Benfica's UEFA Youth League run to the quarter-finals scoring four goals and adding three assists in six games. Ramos has also chipped in four goals and two assists in twenty games with Benfica's B squad in the Liga Pro. Bruno Lage continues to look for a secondary striker to complement his lead striker and feels that Ramos could be that key player between the midfield to the attack that Benfica has been missing this season. Lage is hoping to find out that answer sooner then later when it comes to Ramos.
