Liverpool could agree two deals by the end of the week as they accelerate their transfer plans to reinforce their squad.
Fabio Carvalho’s signature has already been sealed and he will be officially be unveiled as a Liverpool player on the 1st of July when his contract expires.
Two other players seem quite close to becoming Liverpool players as well and if all goes well, deals could be in place by the end of the week for both of them.
Calvin Ramsay is the closer of the two and is the most likely to become a Red first as Fabrizio Romano and others report he is closing in on an Anfield arrival.
My opinion is that Darwin Nunez will soon follow as well.
Liverpool are working intensely to ensure that they have him lined up as a replacement for Sadio Mane despite rejecting bid after bid for him.

The Uruguayan may be limited in certain areas of his game but he is prolific in front of goal and will be the first natural no.9 that Jurgen Klopp signs.
So far, the German has done a wonderful job of making it work with Roberto Firmino (a natural attacking midfielder), Sadio Mane (a left-wing), Diogo Jota (played out wide for Wolves) and even Mohamed Salah has played centrally for the Reds.
Adding Darwin Nunez to Liverpool’s ranks could see a significant switch in tactics especially if Klopp decides to switch to a 4-2-3-1 with Carvalho playing as a no.10 making runs beyond Nunez.
Liverpool have rarely set up with a centre-forward playing as the focal point in attack, preferring to use his no.9s to create space for Salah and Mane/Salah to run into.
However, with Andy Robertson and assist king Trent Alexander-Arnold at fullback whipping crosses into the box, someone like Nunez would feast on their service.
