Pedro Gonçalves remains in the Premier League’s sights

Even with the market closed, player surveys continue. Aston Villa is the most persistent, but Tottenham, Liverpool and Newcastle know the Leo midfielder/forward well. Olympic goal against Arsenal increased his share in the Premier League.

Pedro Gonçalves renewed his contract until 2027, the market window has now closed, but the Sporting player continues to be on the shopping list of several English teams. According to O JOGO, surveys and contacts continue and, although the midfielder/forward has a high release clause, 80 million euros, he continues to deserve special attention from some Premier League clubs. Especially from Aston Villa (Tottenham, Liverpool and Newcastle also keep an eye on the player), who recently, directly, expressed interest in signing the player, having even sent a proposal to Alvalade, insufficient, however, to convince SAD leonine to free him.

Pedro Gonçalves is satisfied at Sporting, he enjoys a good financial situation, especially after agreeing the new contract with the Lions, and remains focused on the team’s objectives, which include winning the national championship. Pote was already well known in England, but his “price” rose after scoring an Olympic goal against Arsenal, in the second leg of the round of 16 of the Europa League. This move went around the world and, naturally, Pedro Gonçalves gained another dimension in the main European leagues. Faced with this scenario and constant approaches to the player, Frederico Varandas moved to renew his contract until 2027, in mid-August, allowing the lions another security in future negotiations.

In Alvalade since 2019, Pote has already won a championship, a Super Cup and two League Cups.

In the title year, in 2020/21, Pote was the league’s top scorer with 23 goals. The Leo player beat Seferovic, then Benfica’s top scorer, in a sprint.

This season, he has four games and one goal, scored in Braga in the last round of the Betclic League. The National Team continues to be Pote’s objective. The player was once again left out of Roberto Martínez’s options in the last call-up for the double commitment to qualify for Euro 2024.
