Winger set to leave Italy, as agent confirms talks with unnamed Premier League club.
Liverpool are favourites to sign Bologna winger Gaston Ramirez after the star’s agent confirmed talks with an unnamed Premier League club.
The Uruguayan is set to leave the Serie A this summer and has been linked with a move to Anfield, with Tottenham Hotspur mooted as another possible destination.
There is also interest from Internazionale and Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg but the 21-year-old’s agent Pablo Betancur does not believe either will be willing to meet Bologna’s asking price.
Betancur told calciomercato.com: “Inter like the player but we are very far off from what Bologna are asking for him – nearly €25million (£19.5m).
“I think it’s always been more likely that Gaston says goodbye to Italy. So much so that now I’m in London to talk with a Premier League club.
“The Wolfsburg interest? They were the first to move on Ramirez, but some of the figures are impossible for them too.
“I think Ramirez will leave. He is one of the best players and so there are many offers and, again, I think it’s unlikely he will remain in Italy.”
Ramirez is currently in Manchester with the Uruguayan squad preparing for the London Olympic Games.
He is rated as one of the most talented prospects in Italy and scored 8 league goals last season as Bologna finished ninth in the Serie A.
