Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay could be set for a medical at Liverpool later this week.
That’s according to The Mirror, who claim that a deal to take the 18-year-old to Liverpool is now ‘close to completion.’
The Reds have reportedly agreed a £4m fee with the Scottish side, as they look to make Ramsay their second signing of the summer after Fabio Carvalho.
A medical hasn’t been confirmed, but it’s claimed that it could happen this week.
Liverpool busy in the market
As Liverpool fans, we’ve come to simply accept that summer transfer windows will come and go without too much action.
The Reds are usually reserved in the market and have usually made just one, or perhaps two first-team additions.
That looks to be set to change this summer. Having already snared Carvalho from Fulham well ahead of time, they now look like wrapping up another deal for a highly rated teenager.
With things hotting-up in the chase for the £85m rated Darwin Nunez, there looks like being further action on the way, too.
Sadio Mane’s willingness to try a new challenge may have somewhat forced Liverpool’s hand. But they have numerous players who are either aging, running out of time on their deals, or both.
A mini rebuild is needed now ensure trouble doesn’t occur further down the line. With Ramsay, Nunez and Carvalho all aged between eighteen and twenty-two, Liverpool are proofing for the future.
Elite potential on the way to Anfield
Liverpool look to have headed off some quite serious competition for Ramsay. Both Leeds United and Bologna were reportedly interested and he’d have surely seen much more first-team football at either.
But The Reds look to have got their man. He’ll initially serve as back-up to Trent Alexander-Arnold as he beds in.
Beyond that though, there’s every chance he could take over from the Scouser when the time eventually comes.
Having just won the SFWA Footballer of the Year, he has been labelled as having ‘elite potential’ by Aberdeen chairman Dave Cormack via Press and Journal.
