The row between Gaston Ramirez and Bologna management is escalating.

Uruguayan talent Ramirez told newspapers he "felt like a prisoner" at the Stadio Dall'Ara.

The club released a statement on Saturday insisting his agents were "ruining the reputation" of the player with their tactics and no serious bids had been tabled.

However, this afternoon agent Vincenzo D'Ippolito hit back with an interview on Sky Sport Italia.

"There have been offers from Udinese and Roma," he insisted.
