Liverpool are expected to pip Leeds United to the signing of Aberdeen youngster Calvin Ramsay, according to reliable journalist Phil Hay.
The Lowdown: Ramsay heading to England
The 18-year-old has emerged as one of the Scottish Premiership‘s brightest young players in the last 12 months or so, shining with his performances for the Dons.
The teenager has been linked with a move to Liverpool a number of times and a fresh update has now acted as a further boost.
The Latest: Liverpool favourites for move
Writing for The Athletic, Leeds journalist Hay claimed that the ‘high likelihood’ is that the Reds will pip the Whites to Ramsay’s signature this summer.
He has made 39 appearances for Aberdeen in total, scoring once and registering an impressive nine assists.
The Verdict: Great long-term prospect
Bringing in emerging talent is vital for Liverpool in the coming years, allowing Jurgen Klopp to build another great squad and ensure that the team doesn’t all go past their primes at once.
Ramsay fits the bill to perfection and he could come in as an ideal understudy to Trent Alexander-Arnold, learning from arguably the world’s best right-back.
It would also mean Liverpool would be able to offload Neco Williams permanently, bringing in more funds for new signings in the summer window.
