City target Ramirez given £20m price tag

Bologna have put a price tag of over £20million on coveted playmaker Gaston Ramirez, according to the player's agent.

Two goals up before the break.

The Uruguay international has been strongly linked with a move away from Bologna this summer and is a reported target of top European clubs including Manchester City, Liverpool and Juventus.

"Bologna want 25m euros (£20.2m) for Ramirez but an agreement can be found," said Ramirez's agent Pablo Betancourt to

"It is obvious that Bologna would do well from his sale. They would receive 70% whilst 30% would go to (Ramirez's former club) Penarol, as previously agreed.

"German club Wolfsburg have offered 15-18m euros for Ramirez whilst Zenit St Petersburg have expressed an interest.

"With Liverpool, however, the situation is at a standstill because the Reds are just choosing their coach."

The 21-year-old Ramirez joined Bologna from Penarol in 2010 and scored eight goals in 33 league appearances this season to help the Rossoblu finish ninth in Serie A.

"Gaston is a very young player and he has done well in Italy," said Betancourt. "It is normal that many clubs now want him.

"We must meet with Bologna to understand his situation - there are offers for him and we must see what Bologna want to do."

Ramirez is under contract with Bologna until June 2016.
