Bologna ace linked with Reds
Liverpool are reported to have launched a £16.3million bid for the Bologna midfielder Gaston Ramirez.
Reds boss Kenny Dalglish will once again be backed in the transfer market and a new midfielder is high on his wanted list despite signing Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson last summer. Ramirez is being targeted by a number of Europe's top clubs but it looks as though Liverpool have stolen a march on their rivals by making an offer for the 21-year-old. The player's agent Pablo Bentancur has confirmed an offer has been made but has refused to identify the club, despite reports claiming it has come from Liverpool. "Bologna have received an offer near to 20million euros from an important club in the Premier League," he revealed. "Bologna will decide at the end of the season what they are going to do." The Uruguayan has impressed in a struggling side this season when scoring six goals and Dalglish wants him at Anfield next season.
