Daily Echo.

The Uruguayan playmaker arrived at St Mary’s Stadium with a reputation as one of the most talented emerging players in European football, but has struggled to produce the sort of form to back up his billing on the South Coast.

Despite his Premier League struggles, Ramirez’s reputation in Italy remains high, which has led to rumours that Napoli are considering a move to bring him back to Serie A.

The 22-year-old has shown glimpses of his talent for the Saints, but is thought to be ready to leave the club.

The Naples-based giants’ new boss, Rafael Benitez, is said to be keen to bolster his squad this winter, and is ready to make a move for Ramirez.

The Spaniard witnessed the playmaker’s talents last term during his spell at Chelsea, and believes that he can help to get him back to his best.

The opportunity to play in the Champions League and compete for leagues and cups may appeal to the South American.

Southampton fought off interest from Liverpool to secure Ramirez’s services last year.

Should Southampton fight to keen Gaston Ramirez?
