With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, the agent of Gaston Ramirez reveals Premier League talks.
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.
