Newcastle are preparing a proposal for Gonçalo Ramos as new top target. Discussions are ongoing on the player side and talks will continue with Benfica.

Paris Saint-Germain have Ramos in their list since June but there’s still nothing agreed – Newcastle, on it too.

However, Benfica understands a move could be on the horizon and are open to the idea of the sale for Ramos. Moreover, Ramos could flourish a lot under more considerable management such as that of Newcastle if a move goes through.
