Brazilian midfielder Ramiro on radar of Italian clubs

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 6: Brazilian midfielder Ramiro is reportedly being sought by four Italian Serie A clubs.

Lazio, Roma, Parma and Torino have shown interest in the 20-year-old after his impressive debut season for Gremio in Brazil’s top-flight last year, Xinhua quoted Brazilian football news website Sambafoot as saying.

Ramiro made 29 league starts last season, scoring a goal and creating three assists as Gremio finished second in the standings.

He has predominantly been used as a holding midfielder but is also capable of a more attacking role.

The left-footer joined Gremio from the youth ranks of Brazilian Serie C club Juventude.
