Calvin Ramsay is a Scottish right-back who plays for Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen. The 18 year old has impressed for the Scottish outfit in both the league and the UEFA Conference League qualifiers.
Liverpool have now identified him as the backup for Trent Alexander-Arnold. According to reports, the Dons rejected a bid from Bologna for the player.
The offer was an £830,000 loan move, with an obligation to buy for £3.3m at the end of the season. However, we hear that the Reds are prepared to break Aberdeen’s club record to bring Calvin Ramsay to Anfield.
Ramsay has revealed his admiration for Liverpool’s full back in an interview. “There are some great players who have won the award and it’s a massive achievement for me. As a full-back, watching Trent and his crosses and his technical ability – if I can get to that level then it would be a bonus.
“Andy Robertson at Liverpool and Tierney at Arsenal have been brilliant and they’re players I look up to, especially as they are full-backs like me. I feel I could go on to do that as well,” said Ramsay.
Aberdeen manager Jim Goodwin has commented about his full-back. “Prior to January, Calvin was probably one of the best young full-backs in the world to be perfectly honest. That is not an over-exaggeration.
“His stats, his data in terms of his attacking numbers, putting crosses in the box were incredible.
“He had a little dip in form,” Goodwin said.
“Whether that was because his head was turned in January with whether he was moving or not moving.”
