Exciting signing

In our view, Goncalo Ramos would be a very good and exciting singing for Leeds United or Newcastle United in the summer transfer window.

Ramos is 21 now, which means that the Portugal Under-21 international striker can only improve and get better in the coming years.

The striker made 17 starts and 12 substitute appearances in the domestic league last season.

Ramos scored seven goals and gave one assist in those matches

The attacker has also given one assist in one Portuguese league appearance for Benfica this campaign.
