According to Liverpool journalist Paul Joyce, the Reds are closing in on signing Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay. The club have been tracking the 18-year-old for some time now, as a possible replacement for Neco Williams (who is expected to leave this summer) or as an understudy to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The price to get the young Scotsman is touted to be around £4m, which is a bargain considering Liverpool have placed a price tag of £15m on Williams. So if things go as planned, they can enjoy a £11m profit on selling an academy right-back to get a back-up for Alexander-Arnold (who himself is an academy product). Leeds United have also kept a close eye on him, but it seems as if Liverpool are favourites to get their man. (figures from this Times article).

Having come through Aberdeen reserves, 2021/22 was the first proper breakthrough season for Ramsay playing in the Scottish top-flight league. Fair to say, he has impressed one and all with his performances, maturity, technique and consistency.

Below, we take an in-depth look at the player, his numbers, his playing style, how he could fit in at Liverpool and much more.
