Liverpool target Aberdeen defender as Trent Alexander-Arnold cover

Liverpool are thought to be preparing a move for Aberdeen defender Calvin Ramsay as they search for cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold in the summer transfer window.

The Reds have improved their squad depth immeasurably in the past two seasons, but right-back is still a position in which they could do with backup, with Joe Gomez the current option should Alexander-Arnold find himself sidelined for any reason.

Gomez is a fine defender, but is a centre-back by trade and his future at Anfield is unclear with the Englishman having made just 9 starts across all competitions this season following his return from serious injury.

With two years left on his current deal come the end of the season, a decision will have to be made on his future one way or another, and it is looking increasingly likely that he could depart.

Calvin Ramsay in the crosshairs

Now, as per the Sun, Calvin Ramsay is the man that Jurgen Klopp has identified as a suitable backup for their creative right-back, with the Aberdeen man having turned in a series of impressive performances for the Scottish side.

The 18-year-old has grabbed a goal and five assists this season in an impressive Scottish Premiership campaign, and as per the report, ‘Ramsay has been attracting interest since his breakthrough and the Anfield giants see him as a player to sign and bring through for the first team’.

It would likely spell the end of both Gomez’s and Neco Williams’ time at Anfield, but could prove another shrewd pickup by the Reds.
