so potentially world beating? Who's he on par with his current ability?
Potentially,yes. But it will take time, and patience from our fans.
I think there are others of similar,if not bigger talent, in Serie A. Notable two being Lamela and Coutinho, but also Luis Muriel who has talent to get whatever he wants from football (though he plays in a different position).
But Ramirez is a big talent as well. Of course it's wrong to say he's the new Kaka or what have you (even though there are plenty of footballing similarities)as he'll make his own path, but like Ricardo he's got the talent to become a household name for all te right reasons.
I thought he was about 6' and pretty solid/tough footballer
Yes, and to an extent. Physically he has no problem dealing with the uncompromising defenders in Italy, but mentally he has to learn that it happens in football, and not to be so petulant towards refs. So long as he can focus himself to avoid those unnecessary battles (similar to Luis) then once he's settled I think he could thrive in England as there is more space between the lines.
