Gastón Exequiel Ramírez Pereyra (Spanish pronunciation: ; born 2 December 1990) is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays as an attacking midfielder for Serie C Group B club Virtus Entella.

He had spells in Uruguay with Peñarol and in Italy with Bologna before moving into the Premier League to Southampton. During his time with Southampton, he spent one season on loan to Hull City in the 2014–15 season in the same division, and the first half of the 2016–17 season with Middlesbrough before joining them permanently for one season. In 2017 he moved back to Italy signing with Sampdoria, before joining Monza in 2021.

Since 2010, he has played for the Uruguayan national team, representing them at the 2012 Olympics, 2013 Confederations Cup and 2014 World Cup.

In 2009, Ramírez played in the FIFA U-20 World Cup. On 8 October 2010, he received his first full cap for Uruguay in a 7–1 friendly win against Indonesia in Jakarta, replacing Diego Pérez at half time.

In July 2012, he was named in the Uruguay squad for the football tournament at the 2012 Summer Olympics, scoring during a warm-up match against Panama on 15 July. On 26 July, he scored from a free-kick to equalise as Uruguay won 2–1 against the United Arab Emirates at Old Trafford in their opening game, although they were eventually eliminated at the group stage.

In June 2013, Ramírez was picked by Óscar Tabárez for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup tournament. Ramírez started the first group game against world champions Spain, and the third match against Tahiti, as Uruguay eventually came fourth.

On 31 May 2014, Ramírez was named in Uruguay's squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He made his tournament debut in the last group game against Italy on 24 June, replacing Cristian Rodríguez after 78 minutes. Three minutes later he supplied the cross from which Diego Godín scored the only goal of the game, putting Uruguay through to the knock-out stages. After missing the Copa América due to a hamstring injury, Ramírez played his first game for Uruguay in a year in a 3–1 win over Trinidad and Tobago and was included in the Copa América Centenario squad, where he played all three matches.

He was named in the squad for the China Cup in March 2018. In May 2018 he was named in Uruguay's provisional 26 man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Ramírez married Micaela Duarte in the summer of 2012. In early 2016 he became a father when his wife gave birth to a daughter. Upon moving to England, Ramírez said he was taking English lessons as part of his work permit requirements.
