Ramirez on Juventus radar

Juventus will reportedly consider making a January bid for Bologna sensation Gaston Ramirez.

The League leaders were linked with the Uruguayan in the summer, but they opted to sign wide players Eljero Elia and Marcelo Estigarribia instead.

However, stories in the peninsula are now suggesting that the South American may be targeted if the Old Lady make some adjustments after Christmas.

Elia's future is in doubt given that he's played for just 45 minutes so far this season, while Milos Krasic could be moved on too.

The latter has recently lost his place in the line-up after some unconvincing displays earlier this season.

Ramirez, 20, is an attacking midfielder who can be used in a wide position or behind two strikers.

Bologna are currently in talks with his agent about improving his contract seeing as he is on just €220,000 a season.

The fantasista is valued at around €15m by the Stadio Dall'Ara outfit, but Juve could pay less by offering cash and players in return for the youngster.
