Chelsea linked with average striker currently tearing up weaker league

Chelsea may have spent more than a quarter of a billion on players in the last 12 months, but they show no signs of slowing down now.

The Blues still need a striker, and a new player being linked to the club is Goncalo Ramos of Benfica.

Caughtoffside are among the sites reporting on rumours in Europe that the forward is high up on Chelsea’s list, and the club made preliminary moves towards buying him when they were securing the last minute deal for Enzo Fernandez.

He’s got 19 goals in the Liga NOS this season, with the Eagles running rampant at the top of the table, even without Fernandez.

Personally, we’re not sure we buy the rumour at all. Ramos is a solid player for Benfica, who play significantly weaker opposition 9 weeks out of 10. There’s no doubt he’s a solid all round player – but we don’t envision him being a star anytime son.

  1. You may be right about the league he’s playing in, SuperFrank, but you’re also talking about a guy who replaced none other than Christianity Ronaldo and scored a hat trick for Portugal against Switzerland in the Round of 16 at the World Cup. It seems like you chose your narrative ahead of time and then left this inconvenient bit out!

    At this point anyone who reads one of your pieces has just got to assume you’ve got it wrong because you so frequently write with a slant that ignores obvious facts. I’ve been reading your stuff for at least a year now waiting/hoping that Simon Phillips’ (who’s astute and measured) will somehow rub off on you, but it just doesn’t seem to be happening. If you don’t have the time (or the talent?) to do proper analysis, why not try leaving your opinions at the door for a few weeks and just report what is happening without injecting the rubbish? We truly appreciate you bringing us new information about what’s happening around the club, but why not leave out the opinion unless you’ve really had the time to do a proper analysis?
