Liverpool should sign him! Twitter reacts to Saints swoop for Ramírez
Reports claim Southampton's €15m offer for Gastón Ramírez is accepted by Bolonga, prompting a flurry of activity on Twitter
Southampton have reportedly had a €15m (£11.8m) offer for Gastón Ramírez accepted by Bologna.
The 21-year-old winger scored eight goals in 28 appearances for the Serie A outfit last term, and Liverpool supporters expressed their dismay on Twitter at seeing their long-term target seemingly edge towards a move to St Mary’s.
Here are some of the Tweets that caught our eye.
Aimee Holland (@AimeeHBx) is excited by the prospect of signing Gastón Ramírez: “Oooo Southampton have agreed a club record deal with Bologna for Uruguay international Gastón Ramírez. Come on you Saints :D!!”
Liverpool fan Harry Hesp (@HarryJHesp) wanted Liverpool to sign the Uruguayan: “Southampton signing Gastón Ramírez a real coup, saw him at the Olympics and was hoping #LFC would move for him, linked well with Suarez.”
Mike Anderson (@TheMikeAnderson) hopes Ramírez can repeat his performances for Bologna at St Mary’s should he move: “Really excited about Gastón Ramírez to Saints. He’s been brilliant for Bologna. He’ll be a big player for us too, I hope.”
But Alex Forrest (@Alexforrest91) questions the reported £12m fee: “Gastón Ramírez to Southampton!? They will be going down at the end of the season if they blow their entire budget on one player!”
Stefan Anderton (@stefananderton) believes Ramírez is too good for Southampton: “Gastón Ramírez on his way to Southampton, he is far too good for that sort of deal! City once gave him a looking at should be at a top six club!”
Liam is my name (@LiamRees1996) is shocked by the reports: “I can’t believe what I’m hearing about Gastón Ramírez going to Southampton?! WAY too good for them!”
But Craig Taylor (@Cragswfc) doesn’t reckon Ramírez will be a success: “Gastón Ramírez will be rubbish in the Premier League – he needs loads of time on the ball!”
Jules (@julesdavidr) believes the midfielder will be a big hit: “Annoying that Saints seem to be getting Gastón Ramírez. Will be a cracking signing.”
Mersey Reds (@MerseyReds1) is sceptical about the deal: “Gastón Ramírez to the Saints is a good deal for them. My opinion is his agent is looking after himself and not the player on this deal.”
Musa (@Waynealiyu) can’t fathom why Ramírez would choose Southampton ahead of Liverpool: “If Southampton get Gastón Ramírez ahead of Liverpool then something must be really wrong at Anfield!”
Tottenham supporter Paul Drain (@pauldrain) wanted the winger at White Hart Lane: “Gastón Ramírez to Southampton! Big signing by them. Spurs should have snapped him up!”
Finally, James Rimmer (@JamesWRimmer) doesn’t think Ramírez would be able to help prevent Southampton from being relegated this season: “Gaston Ramirez will join another club from Southampton next season as he doesn’t want to be playing Championship football – come to Liverpool!”
