NEWCASTLE are reportedly set to make a bid for Benfica star Goncalo Ramos.
The 21-year-old forward came onto the scene with eight goals in 46 games last season.
And journalist Pedro Sepulveda claims Benfica are ready to sell Ramos for just £25m this summer.
Eddie Howe is on the hunt for a new striker after seeing Hugo Ekitike join Paris Saint-Germain.
Newcastle have also been linked with Benjamin Sesko before his move to RB Leipzig was confirmed yesterday.
And Ramos has now moved to the top of Howe’s shortlist with three goals in as many games this season.
The exciting striker is considered one of the best attacking players in Europe.
He has scored an incredible 14 goals in just 18 games for Portugal U21s.
And at 6ft 1in while still being mobile, Ramos’ profile fits perfectly with the type of forward Howe wants.
Newcastle should now prepare an offer for the killer.

But Toon will need to act quickly as reports say no one else is keeping an eye on PSG.
Despite having already signed Ekitike, the French champions are trying to sack Mauro Icardi and want to ensure they have four forwards to fit Christophe Galtier’s new system.
But despite the talks with Benfica, they are yet to make a formal approach.
