Liverpool are set to complete the signing of Aberdeen full-back Calvin Ramsay.
Football Scotland claim that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sees Ramsay as the ‘long-term successor’ to Trent Alexander-Arnold.
It’s claimed that the teenager will be signed for the first-team at Liverpool and will challenge for his place during this summer’s pre-season.
Romano adds more colour
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has also weighed in on The Reds reported move for Ramsay.
Posting on Twitter, Romano claimed that Liverpool had been to scout the right-back during Aberdeen’s 1-0 win over Dundee last weekend.
According to Romano, talks over a fee and a contract are still ‘ongoing.’
More smart business from Liverpool
Having just won the SFWA Young Player of the Year award in Scotland, Ramsay is hot property going into this summer.
His talents look to have outgrown the Scottish Premiership already. As well as Liverpool, Leeds United are said to be keen admirers of the full-back.
According to the report in Football Scotland, Aberdeen also turned down a bid from Serie A side Bologna in January.
If Liverpool can secure one of the most promising British players around for just £4m, it would represent excellent business.
Ramsay has already claimed that he tries to model his game on Alexander-Arnold. In Scotland captain and fellow full-back Andy Robertson, he would also have another prominent role-model to learn from at Liverpool.
With 19-year-old Fabio Carvalho all set to arrive at Anfield this summer too, The Reds future-planning is well underway.
