Gibbs-White to Forest £42.5m transfer deals potential Newcastle United blow in target race

Could Wolves reinvest their money in Newcastle United’s target?

Wolves’ decision to sell Morgan Gibbs-White to Nottingham Forest could throw a spanner in the works of Newcastle United’s pursuit of Benfica attacker Goncalo Ramos.

Bruno Lage’s side have also been linked with the Portugal youth international and could have some serious money to play with soon.

According to a report by Sky Sports, the Midlands club are letting Gibbs-White head out the exit door to the City Ground for a fee worth up to a mouth watering £42.5million.

Ramos latest

Wolves and Newcastle are both said to be keen on luring Ramos to England to bolster their respective attacking options.

In a latest update by talkSPORT though, Southampton are said to be in the race to sign him now and are ‘exploring’ a potential move.

The 21-year-old has been on the books at Benfica since 2013 and has risen up through the youth ranks of the Portuguese giants.

He broke into their B team in around 2019 before he started to enjoy some more first-team minutes on a regular basis last term.

Ramos has now made 64 senior appearances to date and has chipped in with a useful 19 goals.

Wolves are no strangers to delving into the Portuguese market for talent and after loaning out Fabio Silva to Anderlecht earlier in the window, they have a vacancy to fill up top.

They have a big decision to make on who to sign when their funds for Gibbs-White are received and they will certainly find themselves in a much stronger position on the transfer front, which could be a blow to Newcastle’s hopes of signing Ramos before the end of the month.
