Southampton’s summer signing Gaston Ramirez has admitted that he would be open to a move back to Italy in the future and that Fiorentina would be his preferred club, as reported by Sky Sports.

The Saints paid Bologna a club record £11.8million for the Uruguayan this summer and the talented midfielder is starting to come good at St Mary’s. However, with Southampton clearly facing a relegation battle this season, Ramirez is clearly already thinking about his long term future.

“In Bologna I was fine, but now I think about Southampton,” Ramirez told Tuttomercatoweb.

“Coming back to Italy? In England I discovered a fantastic football.

“But in life never say never, in Italy, as well as in England, there are many important teams.

“Me to Fiorentina? It would be nice, they are playing very well and I like coach (Vincenzo) Montella.

“In every game the team are having fun, they have great quality. Why not? I’d come back in Italy, I like it and I was fine there.”
