Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has officially announced the signing of Gonçalo Ramos, a 22-year-old centre-forward from Benfica.
The deal involves a one-year loan with a quasi-obligatory option for PSG to buy Ramos on a permanent deal next summer.
The loan fee upfront is reported to be €20m, with a total package worth €80m, including performance-related add-ons.
If the loan option is triggered, Ramos will sign a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 champions.
PSG had been in search of a striker for a year and had pursued various options before settling on Ramos.
Ramos gained international attention when he scored a hat-trick against Switzerland in his first international start at last year’s World Cup.
He scored 27 goals in all competitions for Benfica last season.
PSG is also set to sign Ousmane Dembélé from Barcelona and is pushing to sign Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt.
