Italian journalist and transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has taken to his Twitter to reveal more detail about Liverpool’s progression in completing the signing of Ramsay.
Romano tweeted: “Liverpool are progressing in talks with Aberdeen for Calvin Ramsay. Personal terms agreed as fullback wants LFC move, work in progress to get it done with add-ons in the agreement.”
The news comes amid the Merseyside outfit’s swoop for Benfica forward Darwin Nunez.
Jurgen Klopp will be delighted that talks are progressing to sign the young right-back from Aberdeen, as he has proven he has the potential to be a great back-up for Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The 18-year-old has been impressing this season in the Scottish Premiership scoring one goal, delivering four assists and creating three big chances. He’s also made 1.3 clearances and 1.8 key passes on average per game, as well as winning the majority of his duels combined (51%) over 24 appearances.
Ramsay received high praise from Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack this season (via Scottish Daily Express): “There are not many right back at his age like him, doing what he does.
“He is in the elite upper bracket, right up there, for a young right-back in Europe.”
Although the youngster will be unlikely to play a consistent starting role in the right-back position at Anfield, he will become a great option for Klopp to deploy in the team when he is needed to take the place of Alexander-Arnold and will have the opportunity to develop his craft at the club, with the potential of playing Champions League football.
Liverpool could be set to sell their current back-up right-back Neco Williams who has been attracting attention from Premier League clubs due to his loan spell at Fulham in the second half of last season, with Nottingham Forest the latest to register their interest in the player who has been reportedly valued at £15m.
With that being said, if Liverpool can get a deal done for Ramsay it would be a great signing for the future and would certainly add depth to the club’s already highly rated back-line giving him the opportunity to work with the likes of Virgil van Dijk to continue to fulfil his potential.
