Bologna's highly rated midfielder Gaston Ramirez has played down talk that he is leaving the Rossoblu, amid reports Liverpool are leading the chase for his signature reports

The 20-year-old Uruguayan international is the latest South American starlet to be linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League.

Sources indicated last month, that Ramirez was on Reds boss Kenny Dalglish's radar, and the Merseysiders could look to tempt him into a move to Anfield to link-up with fellow compatriots Luis Suarez and Sebastian Coates.

Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has been instrumental in improving club liaisons in Uruguay, having recently announced a partnership with club Nacional.


Speculation linking the Reds with a January bid for Ramirez continues to gather pace, but the player remains unperturbed by the constant rumours, insisting he is happy in Italy.

"This summer there was talk of many things that are not true," he told local Italian press. "There are just journalists who invented things.

"I have never spoken, and if I did it would have fed what they said. I want to be here in Bologna - I'm fine and they are nice to me."
