Liverpool: Calvin Ramsay could be Andy Robertson 2.0

Liverpool have been heavily linked with Calvin Ramsay ahead of the summer transfer window, and now a new update has emerged that may encourage the club to step up their pursuit.

What’s the latest?

According to Scottish news outlet The Scotsman, Serie A club Bologna are set to reignite their interest in Ramsay following a £4.8m bid falling through in January.

As per the report, the publication understands that the Italian club are set to return to negotiations for a second time this summer to secure Ramsay’s signature over Liverpool and Leeds United who are both named as potential suitors for the defender.

Andy Robertson 2.0

Andy Robertson was a major coup for Jurgen Klopp back when he signed him from newly relegated Hull City back in 2017 for £10m, and since then, he has gone on to be a Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Premier League title winner over the last five seasons and Ramsay could be the second coming of the full-back.

Labelled an “unbelievable” player by sports journalist Ryan Taylor, the 18-year-old recently won the SPFL Young Player of the Year award after an impressive season for Aberdeen which has obviously caught the attention of the powers at Anfield.

Think you know all about Liverpool's title winners and where they came from? Test your knowledge... First, from which club did the Reds sign captain Jordan Henderson?

The £6m ace who was tipped for a “massive future” by Brian Rice, has scored one goal and contributed three assists, creating three big chances, making 1.8 key passes and 1.3 clearances on average per game, whilst winning the majority of his duels (51%) combined in 24 league appearances this season, proving he is showing huge potential.

In total this term, he has racked up a supremely impressive nine assists so it’s easy to see why Klopp wants to add the full-back to his options.

There are many comparisons capable of being drawn between Robertson and Ramsey, with the Liverpool left-back winning the same SPFL Young Player of the Year award back in 2014 when he was at Dundee United and have both been discovered as upcoming talents during their time playing Scottish football.

In terms of similarities on the pitch, despite playing on opposite sides of the backline the pair offer similarities in their ability to not only offer consistent defensive performances but also pose a deadly attacking threat that can cause all sorts of problems for their opponents.

Should Liverpool sign Calvin Ramsay?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The youngster has even claimed that he looks up to the Liverpool star in an interview back in April (via The Scotsman):

“Andy Robertson at Liverpool and Tierney at Arsenal, they’ve all been brilliant and they’re players I look up to, especially as they are full-backs like me.”

With that being said, Liverpool should do everything they can to get the signing over the line as the player can not only learn a lot from the influence of Robertson but can also be a great back up for Trent Alexander-Arnold in the future when the side are competing for multiple trophies.
