Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has heaped praise on Benfica's rising star, Goncalo Ramos, urging his club to sign the young striker.
Fernandes believes that the 21-year-old has the potential to become one of the best strikers in world football.
Ramos has had a remarkable breakthrough season with Benfica, scoring an impressive 26 goals in 46 appearances across all competitions for the Portuguese side.
His performances caught the attention of national team coach Fernando Santos, who handed him a start in Portugal's World Cup last-16 match against Switzerland. In that game, Ramos delivered a stunning hat trick, demonstrating his prowess in front of goal on the international stage.
'He surprised me in the national team, not only me but the rest of my team-mates. He's physically strong, he's still young and he's going to get better.
'If he continues to work as he has been doing, I think he has the potential to be one of the best strikers in the world, but he needs to go to a more competitive league to prove it.'
Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has made signing a striker a top priority for the upcoming summer transfer window, with several high-profile names linked to the club, including Tottenham's Harry Kane and Napoli's Victor Osimhen.
However, Fernandes believes that his compatriot Ramos possesses all the qualities required to thrive in the Premier League and has urged the club to consider his acquisition.
"The best always come in handy, be it Goncalo or another player," Fernandes stated. "He has all the qualities to play in the Premier League, and when I say Premier League, I also mean Manchester United. I think he could become a great reference in the coming years."
