Gaston Ramirez: Agent is in England for talks with a Premier League club
Bologna winger Gaston Ramirez looks set to leave Italy, with his agent in talks with an unnamed Premier League club.
The 21-year-old Uruguay international is believed to be a target for Liverpool and Tottenham and is currently in England as part of his country's Olympic squad.
"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."

There is also interest from Inter Milan as well as Bundesliga club Wolfsburg but agent Pablo Betancur does not believe either will be willing to pay the asking price for his client.
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 scored eight league goals for Bologna last season as the club finished ninth in Serie A.
