Ramirez valued at €25m

Bologna have several offers on the table for their Uruguayan attacker Gaston Ramirez, but are holding out for €25m, says his agent.

The 21-year-old has caught the attention in his two seasons so far in Serie A with Emilia-Romagna outfit Bologna and rumours are strong that he will be moving on this summer.

Confirming a change in the player’s representation situation, his agent has suggested that it is a matter of discussing the bids to have come in with the Felsinei.

“Now begins a new story for Ramirez - the boy has signed under the management of a company run by my cousin, FIFA agent Oscar,” revealed Pablo Bentancurt of his client to

“We have signed an exclusive contract with Bologna, which runs from today. The only agent for the guy is now me and I want to specify that other agents speaking on Gaston’s situation do so without knowing anything.

“We must meet with Bologna to understand his situation - there are offers for him and we must see what the Rossoblu want to do.

“From Germany, Wolfsburg have offered €15-18m, whilst from Russia, Zenit St Petersburg have shown up. With Liverpool, however, the situation is at a standstill because the Reds are just choosing their Coach.

“Bologna want €25m, but an agreement can be found - it is obvious that Bologna would do well from his sale. They would receive 70 per cent, whilst 30 per cent will go to Penarol, as agreed earlier. Thus, the higher the price, the higher the proportion of cash that will be.

“Gaston is a very young player with a broad spectrum of prospects - he has done well in Italy, both in a qualitative and quantitative way. It is normal that many clubs now want him.”
