Liverpool are poised to sign Calvin Ramsay with West Ham now officially set to miss out on the young Aberdeen right-back.
That’s according to a report from highly-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano who claims that Liverpool signing the teenager is a ‘done deal’.
Romano claims that Aberdeen accepted a bid from Liverpool last week after the Merseyside giants changed the structure of the add-ons.
Press and Journal had claim that Aberdeen wanted around £10 million for Ramsay. So Liverpool have presumably met that valuation.
West Ham boss David Moyes wanted to bring the 18-year-old right-back to the London Stadium, according to a report from The Scottish Sun.
It appears as though we’ve missed the boat though…
Liverpool to sign Calvin Ramsay
The 18-year-old right-back is seemingly heading to Anfield from Aberdeen this summer.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp appears to have beaten Hammers manager David Moyes in the race to sign the talented young Scot.
Fabrizio Romano took to Twitter this afternoon regarding the future of the teenager.
Romano suggested that Ramsay’s move to Liverpool is a ‘done deal’:
And that’s bad news for West Ham United.
Ryan Fredericks has been released from the London Stadium whilst Ben Johnson seems to be better when playing at left-back or centre-back.
Meanwhile, Vladimir Coufal will be 30 in August and Harrison Ashby is totally unproven at Premier League level.
Ramsay would have been a very strong signing for the Hammers. He seems to have the talent needed to go on and become a real star in the game.
Ramsay has made 39 senior appearances for Aberdeen already and has chalked up nine assists in the process (Transfermarkt).
The 18-year-old is an attacking right-back in every sense. He is full of energy, stamina, determination and drive. He’s been described as ‘outstanding’ by Aberdeen Live.
£10 million will surely end up being sensational value for the young right-back.
And if Liverpool do sign Calvin Ramsay, it will be very much be their gain and West Ham’s loss.
