Report: Liverpool have now approached 'elite' player, he could sign before Nunez arrives
Liverpool are close to sealing a deal to sign Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen, with Sky Sports reporting this morning that an approach has been made.
Ramsay has been tipped to join the Reds for some time now. The impressive defender has been a stand out performer north of the border and has attracted admiring glances from the likes of Leeds and Tottenham. However, it is Liverpool who appear to have won the race for his signature.
Sky Sports reports this morning how a deal is close to being signed off by both clubs which would see Liverpool pay an initial £4m for Ramsay, rising to £6m+ in add-ons. That deal would make it a record sale for Aberdeen, who will be delighted at such a figure for their man.
For Liverpool, the signing of Ramsay represents yet another young player choosing Anfield over others. The Reds have already seen success when it comes to defenders from Scotland in the form of Andy Robertson, who has been exceptional since arriving.
If the deal is closed in the coming days, Ramsay could even arrive before the much-anticipated arrival of Darwin Nunez from Benfica. Liverpool are said to be close to sealing an £80m+ deal for the striker.

We’ve seen this already with players like Harvey Elliott moving to Anfield and how squad players stay put at the club due to Jurgen Klopp’s management. And it seems the Reds are doing it again with Ramsay here.
Despite interest from elsewhere, Ramsay has opted to join Liverpool and it’s a testament to how the club has become one of the go-to places in recent times.
