Calvin Ramsay could cost Liverpool more after Aberdeen saw the Reds agree to pay as much as €100million to sign Darwin Nunez.
A deal to sign Nunez was officially announced and unveiled by Liverpool on Tuesday, with the Uruguayan signing a six-year contract.
Liverpool have paid (£64m) upfront with (£21m) in add-ons taking the cost of the deal to €100million (£85m).
The 22-year-old is the most expensive signing in Liverpool history.
However, Nunez isn’t the only signing Liverpool have been actively negotiating to complete as they are locked in advanced talks to sign Calvin Ramsay.
The Scotsman has agreed personal terms and is expected to join Liverpool but until a fee is agreed with Aberdeen, nothing is official.
According to Sky Sports, Aberdeen have increased their asking price for Ramsay to £10million in total with £5m up front and £5m in add-ons.
It’s still a good deal for the 18-year-old but with Liverpool flashing the cash, it’s no surprise that the Scottish outfit is looking for their piece of the pie.
Ramsay is an exciting young prospect but will play little more than a squad role next season as he has arguably the toughest job in world football to oust Trent Alexander-Arnold from his spot at right-back.
Only with England’s national team is Trent not appreciated properly although Reece James recently came to his club rival’s defence.
Jurgen Klopp is bound to be delighted with the work his transfer gurus have conducted this summer to snap up Carvalho and Nunez with Ramsay set to follow suit shortly.
If Liverpool can add a high-quality midfielder to their ranks then this summer has already been a huge success.
