Europa League giants line up shock swoop for Southampton outcast

Sevilla are chasing Southampton outcast Gaston Ramirez ahead of the expiration of his deal on the South Coast, report the Daily Mail.

The La Liga outfit are understood to be plotting a summer swoop for the 25-year old, who is currently on loan at Championship hopefuls Middlesbrough.

While at the Riverside, he has scored three goals in his opening eight games.

Despite earning a big reputation at former club Bologna, the Uruguayan attacking midfielder has struggled to adapt to English football.

After becoming the record signing for the Saints in 2012, he went on to make only 48 appearances while at St. Mary’s.

Prior to his season-long loan move to Hull City in 2014, the southern Spanish club are believed to have been keen on signing him.

Though he reportedly has offers to return to his native South America, he could soon be in line for a move to the Europa League winners.
