Gaston Ramirez’s agent has revealed that the Southampton attacker could return to Italy in January.
The former Bologna man has found opportunities hard to come by this season under Coach Mauricio Pochettino.
And his representative has confirmed that the playmaker would welcome a move back to Serie A.
“[Southampton] President Cortese likes Gaston a lot,” Pablo Bentancur told tuttomercatoweb.
“He’s always treated us very well, but there is a problem – the Coach does not play him.
“We respect the choice of Pochettino, because it’s up to him to choose who plays.
“But Gaston is a great player and wants to feel comfortable.
“You’d have to talk to Cortese to see if they’re going to sell. But can he return to Italy? Yes, I think he can.”
