Fiorentina will step up their interest in Gaston Ramirez after Bologna netted Alessandro Diamanti last week.
Attacking midfielder Diamanti plays in a similar role to the Uruguayan sensation which has led to suggestions that the 20-year-old could be sacrificed.
Ramirez has openly asked for a move away from the Stadio Dall'Ara outfit amidst interest from Roma and Udinese.
However, Fiorentina seem to be in the middle of rebuilding the squad and Ramirez is rated highly by the Viola.
Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino could make an enquiry regarding Ramirez by the end of this week.
