Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is on red alert after the latest comments coming out from Gaston Ramirez's representatives.
According to reports on Insidefutbol.com, Liverpool have been monitoring Uruguayan international winger Ramirez for sometime now and it is believed the Anfield club are plotting a move when the January transfer window opens.
La Liga side Sevilla is also interested in the 20-year-old, but it is felt Liverpool are leading the chase for Ramirez.
The Uruguayan is currently with Serie A side Bologna and it is believed they will be willing to part with their prized asset if their £13million valuation is met.
Speaking about Ramirez, his agent Vincenzo D'Ippolito said: "The directors of his team know that if not in January, he will leave next summer because there are many clubs interested."
