Liverpool have future world beater on hands in Calvin Ramsay
Liverpool have a future world-beater on their hands in the shape of teenage sensation Calvin Ramsay after he made his Anfield move.
The former Aberdeen defender played 22 times in the 2021/22 Scottish Premiership campaign, bagging six-goal involvements along the way.
He has been tipped as a future star after setting Scotland on fire, winning the SWFA Young player of the Year last season.
Despite still only being 18 years old, Jurgen Klopp has no plans on sending the teenager out on loan and rightly so as he signs a five-year deal on Merseyside.
Nobody knows when he might break into the Liverpool team but it could be sooner rather than later if he continues to shine as bright as he has done in the last two seasons.
It is a big loss for Aberdeen but one that was inevitable it seems. However, they are to receive a club record £6.5million for the youngster which will soften the blow – £4million upfront and potentially £2.5million in add-ons, as per Sky Sports.
At such a young age, he already has experience in Europe, albeit it the Europa Conference League and at the international level with Scotland’s under 21 side which will undoubtedly help him at Liverpool.
Ramsay is an incredibly versatile and talented player who can play anywhere but having fellow right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold – one of the best in the world in their position – and Scotland captain Andy Robertson and full-back influences could see him knuckle down as a defender.
Klopp being able to play him in a plethora of positions is great for the German and could allow him to feature more regularly which will help him progress quicker in England.
This is a really exciting signing but everyone needs to be careful not to put too much pressure on the kid because he still has a long way to go.
You can’t help but see him as a future world-beater though, especially if he reaches his full potential which he very much could do at Liverpool under Klopp.
