Leeds United think they are set to lose out on Scottish right-back Calvin Ramsay to Liverpool this summer.
That’s according to The Athletic, who claim that Leeds are expecting Ramsay to choose a move to Anfield over Elland Road.
Leeds have reportedly been ‘closely tracking’ the 18-year-old. However, they know there is a ‘high likelihood’ of him turning them down, in favour of The Reds.
Ramsay on his way to Liverpool?
At one stage a few weeks ago, it looked as though Ramsay joining Liverpool was virtually a done deal.
There were even reports in The Athletic that Jurgen Klopp had approved the deal ‘very quickly.’
It’s still early days for transfers of course, the window hasn’t even officially opened yet. But things have gone a little quiet on that front recently.
That might just be owing to the stakes that Liverpool were still playing for during the season. Now that the dust is starting to settle on the campaign, maybe we’ll see a bit more movement.
‘Elite’ potential leaving Aberdeen
Ramsay looks like he could be an excellent piece of business for whoever wins the race for his signature.
Still only eighteen, he won the SFWA Young Player of the Year award for his displays at Aberdeen this season. That led to the Scottish club’s chairman Dave Cormack labelling him as having ‘elite’ potential via The Press and Journal.
It’s barley a year since the teenager made his debut for the club he’s been at since the age of nine. After 40 appearances for Aberdeen, he now looks to have played his last game for them.
With Liverpool potentially on the lookout for a back-up to Trent Alexander-Arnold, it’s very possible that Leeds’ expectations come true.
