The lowdown: Reds’ interest
Despite his tender years, the 18-year-old marauding right-back has already made 39 senior domestic outings in Scotland and has represented the nation at the Under 21 level.
As Jurgen Klopp attempts to build a squad fit for another tilt at all four trophies available next season, Ramsay is very much on Julian Ward’s radar at Anfield…
The latest: Ready to move
As per The Athletic, Liverpool are ‘looking to complete’ a move for the Scottish teenager in the upcoming transfer window.
It’s claimed that the Reds will have to pay just £4million for the talented starlet, who was hailed as a ‘superb young talent’ and the ‘real deal’ by journalist Sean McGinlay.
Unsurprisingly, the report explains that Ramsay is expected to arrive on Merseyside as an ‘understudy’ to Trent Alexander-Arnold, putting the future of Neco Williams in increased doubt.
The verdict: Future-proofing
Should Liverpool complete the swoop for Ramsay, it would be yet another clear indication of the mantra from FSG affecting transfer strategy as the club looks to stockpile some of the finest youngsters beneath the current first-team crop.
Recent captures of Fabio Carvalho, Marcelo Pitaluga and Kaide Gordon have all caught the eye in one way or another and the Reds appear to have the next generation already ready and waiting to step up.
During 2021/22, Ramsay earned an impressive 6.92 Sofascore rating which included making 1.8 key passes, completing 1.3 clearances and successfully finding a teammate with 1.3 accurate long balls on average per game – highlighting a well-rounded game, perfect for the modern-day full-back and to shadow Alexander-Arnold.
Boasting an array of superb attributes both in a defensive and attacking capacity (WhoScored), signing the exciting hot prospect for the mooted fee would be a wholly worthwhile move from the Reds.
