Liverpool and Tottenham target Gaston Ramirez's agent has told the Italian press that he is currently holding talks with a Premier League side in London.

The 21-year-old Bologna & Olympic hopeful had also been linked with a host of clubs including Inter Milan, Wolfsburg, Napoli and Juventus, but it now looks like an English club have moved to the top of the list.

Pablo Bentancur (the players agent) told Calciomercato that a Premier League side's financial muscle had priced out Italian giants Inter.

"Inter like the player, but we are very far off with regards to the valuation, since now Bologna ask for nearly €25million" he said.

Bentancur also revealed "the player is very likely to say goodbye to Italy, so much so that now I am in London to talk with a Premier League club"

‘He is one of the most important players in Uruguray, so there are no shortage of offers.’

Ramirez - capable of playing on either flank or behind the main striker - is Liverpool's No 1 target after they cooled their interest in Fulham's Clint Dempsey.
