Bologna coach Stefano Pioli insists winger Gaston Ramirez could still stay.

Ramirez has been linked with a big club move away this summer.

"Ramirez is one of our players. I think he's very strong and is growing," Pioli told Sky Sport Italia.

"I hope he stays with us. In any case the club has assured me that if he leaves, an important player will be brought in to replace him.

"He will stay until there are offers worthy of his value."
