Liverpool will allow Fabio Carvalho, Calvin Ramsay and Caoimhin Kelleher to leave the club on loan next season.
That’s according to 90min, who claim that the trio have been deemed surplus to immediate requirements by Jurgen Klopp. As a result, all three are said to have been informed that they can leave on a temporary basis.
In Carvalho’s case, it’s claimed that a move away will purely be to find regular first team football. The 20-year-old has fallen out of favour under Klopp, but he’s reportedly ‘determined’ to have a long-term future at Liverpool.
The Reds would seem to be leaving the door open in that respect, with a permanent transfer said to be off the table this summer.
Liverpool are claimed to be looking to find a ‘Premier League landing spot’ for all three players.
Disappointment for Reds trio
Of this trio, it’s arguably Calvin Ramsay who holds the most intrigue. On paper, it’s probably wise to send the 19-year-old away having barely played at all this year. But it may leave Liverpool a little short.
If Klopp pushes forward with his Trent Alexander-Arnold experiment, it could mean that a space opens up at right-back in the Reds’ squad.
Theoretically, this would be great news for Ramsay. Nominally brought in as Trent’s back-up for this season, he would more or less be next in line to grab that spot permanently.
Joe Gomez is also an option, but you don’t get the impression that Klopp trusts him to play there on a full-time basis. And nor should he, really, he’s a centre-back.
So, if Liverpool choose to also send Ramsay away, it will say much about his current prospects of making it at Anfield. Namely, they’re not very good. He’s still young though, and a season of regular football – especially in the Premier League – will put him back in the frame.
For the other two, it’s hardly a surprise to see them put up for loan. News had already filtered out that Carvalho was to be shipped out and after an underwhelming season, that’s probably fair enough. For Kelleher’s part, a permanent sale would surely make more sense, but a loan could be productive too.
