Report: Southampton want to sell Gaston Ramirez this summer

Gaston Ramirez has struggled to make an impact at Southampton recently.

Southampton are hoping to permanently offload Gaston Ramirez this summer, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The Saints loaned Ramirez out to Hull City this season, but he has not done enough while there to convince Ronald Koeman that he is worth bringing back into the frame.

As a result, the Uruguayan midfielder is set to be sold in the coming months, but Southampton may struggle to find a suitor.

The South Coast club paid £12 million for the creator back in 2012, according to the Mail, but he has never really gone on to fulfil his potential.

That means that they may struggle to recoup much of that fee should they sell him now, and that will be a disappointment.

Southampton's recent record in the transfer window has been virtually impeccable, but Ramirez's addition has been a rare mistake.

Ramirez has just one year left on his contract at St. Mary's and this summer could be Southampton's last chance to get any money for the attacking midfielder.
