Juve interest in Ramirez is real

Juventus are one of numerous clubs interested in Gaston Ramirez, the Bologna player's agent has stated.

The Turin giants were linked with the Uruguayan fantasista earlier this week and their admiration for him has been confirmed.

"There have been some important enquiries made, but not only by Juventus," Vincenzo D'Ippolito told calciomercato.it.

"Roma made contact before they signed Erik Lamela, while Udinese have tabled an interesting offer.

"They are very keen on him and if they go forward in the Champions League then they could come back for him."

Ramirez is an attacking central midfielder, but he's been mentioned as a possible solution to Juve's left midfield problem.

"He's played a number of times on the wing," the representative continued. "Therefore, I consider that he can play in Antonio Conte's 4-2-4."
