Liverpool are set to make a move for Aberdeen’s Calvin Ramsay, having moved ahead of Leeds in the race for the Scotsman according to reports.
Ramsay has been a long-term target for the Reds and will likely cost around £4m. He will be looking to be the understudy to Trent Alexander-Arnold next season.
It’s set to be a busy summer for the Reds in arrivals and departures. Divock Origi is confirmed to be departing, while conversations are expected over the futures of Sadio Mane, Takumi Minamino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain among others.
According to The Athletic’s Liverpool correspondent James Pearce, Liverpool are hopeful of concluding a deal for Ramsay in the coming weeks.
Liverpool’s dealings this summer have mostly been in the youth market. Fabio Carvalho has already arrived from Fulham, whilst Ben Doak joined from Celtic in April.
With Leeds likely completing the signing of Rasmus Nissen Kristensen from RB Salzburg, they have fallen down in the pecking order. As Neco Williams is likely to depart from Liverpool, Ramsay would be second in line.
Liverpool are due to return for pre-season training on July 4, with Carvalho already pencilled in to meet his new team-mates that week at Kirkby.
With Ramsay not called up to the Scotland squad for their UEFA Nations League clashes with Armenia and the Republic of Ireland, nor the U21 Euro qualifiers against Belgium and Denmark, he should be available for the first day of training next month if he does arrive at Anfield.
The dilemma of first-team football or learning from the best is clear in the fullback's mind, but which way he decides is yet to be seen.
