Liverpool agree deal for Calvin Ramsay as last signing this summer

Liverpool have reached an agreement with Aberdeen over the proposed transfer of Calvin Ramsay, and that, once it’s completed, will be the last incoming transfer of this summer for the Merseysiders. This is according to Paul Joyce of The Times, who adds that the Reds will pay an initial £4m fee with add-ons possibly raising the total by £2.7m more.

Liverpool have already strengthened their ranks with the arrivals of attacking midfielder Fabio Carvalho from Fulham, as well as striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica with what could become their record purchase if all the add-ons are triggered. One of the more obvious weak spots in the squad remains the backup option for Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back, and that is where Ramsey comes in.

The 18-year-old right-back is a product of Aberdeen’s academy, and for the first team of the Scottish club, he has made 39 appearances, scoring one goal and producing nine assists. Boasting fine crossing ability and a decent set-piece, it’s quite clear why he is considered a good alternative for Alexander-Arnold. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has mostly used Joe Gomez in the role in 2021/22, but the German tactician has made it clear many times that he sees the England international only as a centre-back in the future.
