Liverpool report: Reds accept record fee for Trent Alexander-Arnold understudy

Liverpool are in talks with Aberdeen over a £6million deal for teenage defender Calvin Ramsay, according to reports.

The 18-year-old has attracted a lot of attention after breaking into the Dons first team this season, and he could earn his club a club-record fee.

A report of Sky Sports News (opens in a new tab) claims Reds will offer £4m fee and an additional £2m in add-ons.

The right-back has suitors in England, Germany and Italy but a switch from Anfield is his preferred option and personal terms are unlikely to be a problem.

The report adds that Scott McKenna’s £3million move to Nottingham Forest is currently the highest amount the Dons have ever received, which rose to £4million following their promotion to the Premier League.

Ramsay has produced nine assists in 33 games since right-back last season, and the Scot’s attacking ability would certainly be appreciated by Jurgen Klopp, who is likely to use him as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s understudy.

Bologna also showed interest in the youngster and saw a bid rejected in January.

Since then, Ramsay has won the SFWA Young Player of the Year award.

The Scotland Under-21 international will turn 19 at the end of July, but he has already racked up 39 senior appearances for Aberdeen.

The 2021/22 campaign was a disappointing one for the northeastern club, however, as they finished ninth, just six points above the relegation play-off spot.
