Benfica prepare new contract for Newcastle United transfer target
Benfica have reportedly made a decision to try and tie down sought-after striker Goncalo Ramos to a new long-term deal at the club.
The 21-year-old attracted interest from the likes of Newcastle United, Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers over the summer when it was understood he would be available for around £25million.
But the young forward’s impressive start to the season has seen him register eight goals and six assists in just 12 matches.
Ramos still has four years remaining on his current deal at Estadio da Luz but Benfica are keen to reward the player’s impressive form with a bumper new deal to fend off interest from across Europe.
Portuguese outlet A Bola claims Man United, Newcastle and Bayern Munich have been monitoring the player, whose release clause at Benfica is in excess of £100million.

Despite Vanderson arriving at Monaco from Gremio in January 2022 for just €11million (£9.59million), the Ligue 1 side value the young defender at €60million (£52million) – a price tag likely to deter many potential suitors.
