Liverpool sign Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay 

Jurgen Klopp-Liverpool

Liverpool have completed the £6.5m signing of Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay.

The Scottish teenager becomes Liverpool’s third summer signing, following the signings of Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez from Benfica.

Liverpool secured the 18-year-old for an initial £4m up front, with a further £2.5m coming as add-ons.

Ramsey has signed a five-year deal at Anfield and will link up with Jurgen Klopp’s squad for pre-season. The Reds have no plans to loan Ramsay out.

Speaking after putting pen to paper, Ramey told Liverpool’s official website;

“I’m just buzzing, and it’s a dream come true really to be here.

“It was a dream come true to play for Aberdeen, and now to be at one of the biggest, if not the biggest club in the world. It’s a massive achievement, and I’m looking forward to trying to show the fans what I’ve got.

“Hopefully, I can come in in pre-season, show everyone at the club, the staff, players what I’ve got and then we’ll see what happens from there.

“There’ve been a lot of young players that have played–the likes of Trent and Harvey as well. There’s a lot more. 

“There’s obviously a pathway here – that’s one of the reasons I chose it as well. It’s not just a massive club. They give young players chances in the first team.

“So if I can come in in pre-season, put my mark down, then there’s no reason why I can’t push to get in the first-team squad.”

Ramsay broke into the Aberdeen first team in the 2020/21 season. He made 33 appearances for the Scottish side last season, scoring one goal and registering nine assists across all competitions.

His performances earned him the SFWA Young Player of the Year Award, while he also has European experience through the Europa Conference League, along with U21 international experience.

Jurgen Klopp sees Ramsay as a long-term right-back rival for England star Trent Alexander-Arnold.
