Bologna midfielder Gaston Ramirez is likely to exit Bologna this summer, after his agent admitted the Uruguayan is likely to have played his final game for the Serie A club.

Ramirez has spent two seasons at Bologna, however his tenure appears close to being over with a deluge of interest in his signature.

Liverpool are reportedly one of those clubs who have expressed an interest, and if true, are likely to be alerted by Vicenzo D'Ippolito's revelation that the midfielder has played his final season for the Italian side.

Ramirez has played his last game for Bologna.

"Ramirez is a player who has had an important season and can look to end this on a high at the London Olympics," he said.

"We will begin to speak with his club after 1 June. It is very likely that this was his last year at Bologna."

The 21-year-old has scored eight goals in 28 games this season for Bologna, who finished 9<sup>th in Serie A.

Ramirez made the move to Italy from Penarol in 2010 and has since built a reputation as one of Uruguay's hottest properties.

The 21-year-old could be tempted to make move to Liverpool, with fellow countryman Luis Suarez and Sebastian Coates having endured short term success since their moves to Anfield in 2011.

Despite serving an eight-match ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra early this season, Suarez has been the shining light for Liverpool this season, the highlight being his brilliant hat-trick against Norwich City during the twilight of the season.

The limited success of Liverpool's transfer dealings last summer means the club are likely to tread carefully in the window, despite owners Fenway Sports Group likely to be armed with substantial funds.

Liverpool's managing director Ian Ayre said despite being without a manager, following Kenny Dalglish's sacking, the club will continue to look at potential targets.

"It's a big machine that works around the acquisition of players at Liverpool and the fact that today we don't have director of football or a manager, doesn't mean any of that stops."
