Liverpool have confirmed their third and reportedly final summer signing as Scottish defender Calvin Ramsay has joined from Aberdeen in a deal worth up to £6.5m.
The right-back, who has been brought ostensibly as cover to Trent Alexander-Arnold, is not expected to be loaned out this season, raising further questions over the future of fellow defender Joe Gomez in Liverpool colours.
Ramsay appeared 39 times in total for the Scottish side, helping them to avoid relegation from the top flight by contributing one goal and five assists from right-back.
Still just 18 years old, he is expected to signal the end of Liverpool's summer transfer business, joining Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho as new additions to Jurgen Klopp's ranks.
The hunt for a midfielder, perceived as necessary by many on Merseyside, is expected to wait until next summer, when the likes of Jude Bellingham are expected to become available.
"A dream come true"
Speaking to Liverpool's official website, the teenager has given his first interview in Liverpool red, claiming that it is a dream come true to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“I’m just buzzing and it’s a dream come true really to be here”, Ramsay revealed.
“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.”
