Report: Liverpool hope to sign Calvin Ramsay in £4m deal this week

Liverpool hope to sign Calvin Ramsay this week, with The Times reporting that the £4 million-rated teenager has told Aberdeen that he wants to move to Anfield this summer.

Ramsay has been heavily linked with a Premier League move for a little while now. In fact, it appeared that his future would lie with one of two sides in England’s top-flight.

Reports claimed that both Leeds and Liverpool wanted the 18-year-old. However, the Whites have apparently accepted that Ramsay is likely to move to Anfield.

And it seems that a deal may be imminent. The Times is now reporting that Ramsay has informed the Dons that he wants to join Liverpool this summer. And Jurgen Klopp’s men hope to conclude a transfer worth around £4 million this week.

It is noted that the price could rise a little higher based on certain add-ons.

Liverpool to sign Ramsay this week

Liverpool have made some amazing first-team signings in recent years. But they have also kept their eye on some of the best youngsters around and wasted little time getting them in.

Fabio Carvalho is the latest through the door. But they have also landed Harvey Elliott and Kaide Gordon amongst others in recent years.

Ramsay has been described as an ‘elite‘ right-back while at Aberdeen. And Liverpool have had a good experience when signing a young, Scottish full-back during Klopp’s tenure.

It will be interesting to see how Liverpool use Ramsay from next season. There is an opportunity for the teenager to immediately become an understudy for Trent Alexander-Arnold – if Neco Williams leaves in some capacity.

Liverpool have a number of other options who can play there if Ramsay is not quite ready. So Klopp may have little concern about fast-tracking the starlet straight into the first-team fold.
