Pioli hopes to keep Ramirez, but...

Stefano Pioli has conceded that Bologna are likely to listen to offers for Gaston Ramirez this summer, but he still holds hopes of keeping the youngster.

Ramirez is attracting attention this summer from the likes of Liverpool and Napoli and is expected to move, should an offer from an interested party come in.

“I think there will be some movement in the market, mainly because our team is not yet complete,” began Pioli on Sky Sport 24, before turning his thoughts to the possible departure that might fund that movement.

“I can only say with Ramirez that he is technically a player of great prospect, with great ability, but also still on the rise.

“If an offer were to come in that was economically important then it is only normal that the club would take it into account, but for now he is our player and I hope that he remains here so I can train him again.”
