Southampton have reportedly set an asking price of £16 million for want-away winger Gaston Ramirez this January, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

The Saints signed the Uruguayan for £12m from Italian side Bologna just last season, but are ready to let him return to Serie A this winter as he has failed to make much of an impression in the Premier League.

Several top Italian teams are said to be interested in Ramirez, including Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli and Fiorentina, and Southampton will look to bring in a good transfer fee from his sale.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have performed above expectations in the Premier League so far this season, though Ramirez has not been a regular feature in the side as he is widely expected to depart the St Mary's Stadium.

The 22-year-old could also be joined out of the exit door by summer signing Pablo Osvaldo, who is another player struggling to settle in England after joining from Roma this season.
