Liverpool favourites to sign Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen - report
Liverpool are the favourites to sign Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen this summer in a possible club-record deal, according to a new report by Sky Sports.
The young Scottish right-back has earned plaudits for his performances in Scotland’s top flight and has attracted the attention of plenty of clubs, including sides in the English top flight.
But despite that, it’s now believed that Jurgen Klopp’s side are the frontrunners for his signature and a deal to make him the first-choice back up option for Trent Alexander-Arnold is closer to a reality.
Aberdeen rejected a deal from Bologna during the January transfer window, while Leeds United have also been credited with a serious interest in a potential deal.
But Liverpool are said to be willing to offer more than £3m for the young defender, which would make any deal a record sale for the Dons. He won the SFWA Young Player of the Year award this season too.
Losing Ramsay would obviously be tough for Aberdeen, but they will have known for a little while now that he wouldn’t be sticking around for very long if he continued to improve.
Able to play in both full-back positions, Ramsay has long been touted as one of the better defensive prospects in world football and would be a huge coup for such a small fee for the Anfield side.
Having been competing for all four trophies available to them this season, it stands to reason why they would be the most attractive prospect for any player they’re looking to sign during the summer window.
Ramsay has often cited Alexander-Arnold as one of his inspirations and the chance to work so closely alongside him would obviously only be seen as a benefit to his own game.
Now he will have the chance to make the move and become another young star wearing the famous red shirt, alongside the likes of Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones and Fabio Carvalho who will join from Fulham this summer too.
