The agent of Gaston Ramirez has revealed he has held talks with a Premier League club amid reported interest from Liverpool, Man Utd, Man City and Tottenham, according to the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old has become one of Serie A’s most respected playmakers after two excellent seasons with Bolonga following his move from Peñarol in 2010.

The Mail suggest that the Uruguayan international is being tracked by Liverpool, Man Utd, Man City and Tottenham, but it’s the Anfield club who are believed to be in pole position to land the £20m-rated attacking midfielder.

New Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to improve his attacking options ahead of next season and has identified Ramirez as a main transfer target this summer.

The players agent, Pablo Betancourt, has now revealed that Ramirez is ready to try his luck outside of Italy and claims he’s in England to hold talks with a Premier League club.

‘Gaston is ready to leave Italy – so much so I am in England for talks with a Premier League club,’

‘He is one of the most important players in Uruguray, so there are no shortage of offers.’

Betancourt is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail

Ramirez is currently in the UK with the Uruguayan squad for the London 2012 Olympic Games and has already shown off his talents with a superb free kick during a 2-1 win over UAE on Thursday.

Liverpool are believed to have turned their attention to the Bolonga ace after cooling their interest in Fulham’s Clint Dempsey, but the Merseysiders could face competition from Barcelona, Inter Milan and AC Milan as well as their Premiership rivals for the South American star.

    This would be the transfer of the year, if LFC land Gaston Ramirez, we would no doubt become a force, Borini, Suarez, maybe Demba,Ba, Gerrard, Lucas, Ramirez, Johnson,Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Reina, what a line up that would be, and Subs R,jones Kelly, Coates, Aquilani, Sterling,Bellamy,Pacheco. that would be a great looking bench also, with great attacking options too, a mixture of experiance and great new tallent, would you agree?.

    Any Liverpool fan that thinks they can compete with Barcelona, Ac Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester City, PSG or Chelsea, have to be the second most deluded bunch of idiots on this planet behind United fans, don’t worry Arsenal fans for you’re in third.

      Your a knob. Even though as a Liverpool fan I hate United, I respect the way they have won titles. City have stuffed the league. Should be a cap on salaries.

      @ CiTyBlUe; i thought you were going to start with Mancity, gud to know that you know that you are the first deluded idiot to acknowledg that city cant compete with Barcelona, Acmilan and Madrid. LIVERPOOL would blowup england and city cant escape their fate.

    Money Isin`t always the biggest draw for some players, and neither is champions league football, some players look at the history of the club? what can you say about your history? and with his fellow country men ie Suarez and Coates playing for this great club with HISTORY in the past, and in the future, i think im far from being delusional, I believe his agent,flew into London to have talks with LFC officials, because Ramirez himself wants to be part of the Liverpool uprising, so whos the IDIOT now?.

    It makes me chuckly when people mention the ‘H’ word and presume Manchester City have no history?

    I’m not a Manchester City supporter but do know they are older (hence have a ‘longer’ history) than United, Arsenal and/or Liverpool, having been founded by the only woman to have formed a professional football team back in the late 1870’s- a good 10 years before the other 3 were even a twinkle in someones eye.

    Liverpool are still a huge name around the world and have the ability to attract the big names ,but if competing with a team who offers champions league football i think they may struggle unless they offer a higher wage ,much like city have when they didn’t have champions league football………….as a City fan i have loads and loads of respect for liverpool and there fans as any team with fans that hates united and fans as much as we do cant be that bad can they ?
