Bologna forward Gaston Ramirez, who has been linked with Chelsea and Liverpool, could reportedly be closing in on a move to Juventus.
Ramirez has been on Liverpool's radar for some time, while Chelsea, Man City, and rivals Manchester United are all believed to have sent scouts to Italy earlier this year to watch him in action.
Earlier this month, Bologna's sporting director, Roberto Zanzi, had told clubs wanting to sign the 21-year-old that their €20million valuation must be met if a deal is to go through.
Agent Pablo Bentancur last week revealed that his client was more likely to join Juventus or Wolfsburg than move to the Premier League, and according to Goal.com, the Italian champions are keen on making Ramirez their next summer signing.
Juve are said to be hopeful of convincing Bologna to agree to a cash-plus-player deal for the Uruguay international and could offer Marco Motta and or Simone Padoin as part of the deal.
When asked if it was true that a meeting with Juventus officials had taken place earlier this month, Bentancur recently told Calciomercato: "No, it is not, though I must admit that Juventus are interested in the player."
Bentancur also claimed Ramirez could leave Bologna for less his valuation, despite Zanzi's recent comments.
"I don’t like to talk about figures. The valuation placed on the boy is very high and do not forget that 30 per cent of his rights belong to Penarol," he said.
"But I think that if someone seriously wants him, then an agreement can be found with the Rossoblu."
