Liverpool plot move for Ramsey after recommendation by both Gerrard and Carragher

Liverpool plot move for Ramsey after recommendation by both Gerrard and Carragher

It would be a coup for Liverpool.

Liverpool are plotting a move for a midfielder recommended by both Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard.

A 3-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday saw Liverpool’s top-four hopes receive a major boost.

The Reds have picked up successive wins since claiming a dramatic point against Arsenal a fortnight ago, and with Tottenham Hotspur still to play at Anfield and Newcastle stuttering of late, a Champions League spot may be achievable.

Should Liverpool claim a place in the top four, they would be able to afford more ambition in the summer transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp has been tipped to undergo a major rebuild of his squad with the midfield, in particular, a position that needs recruits.

The Reds are no longer in the race to sign Jude Bellingham, due to the price the England international will likely command,

However, they have been linked to the likes of Mason Mount, Conor Gallagher, Alexis Mac Allister, Moises Caicedo and Ryan Gravenberch in recent weeks.

Ramsey to Liverpool?

According to Goal, Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey is another player on Liverpool’s radar.

The 20-year-old has been a standout performer for Villa this term. Indeed, in his 25 Premier League appearances this term, he has claimed three goals and two assists.

Ramsey has also been endorsed by two Liverpool legends - Gerrard and Carragher.

Gerrard, who managed the youngster in his ill-fated spell at Villa, said Ramsey was a “top talent” while it was “only a matter of time” before he receives an England call-up.

Speaking in February 2022, Gerrard said: “I want him to make his own headlines with his football. He is a top talent, I’m loving every moment of working with him.

“He is getting stronger with each game because we’re giving him the platform to express himself. He is in a wonderful place.

Gerrard added: “He will be a terrific player. It won’t be long before the whole country is watching him I’m sure. He is right up there, let me tell you.”

Meanwhile, in a tweet from October, Carragher stressed that Ramsey will be “top class in the future”.
