Calvin Ramsay’s impending transfer to Liverpool offers a fantastic personal success story after a season of so much heartbreaking sorrow at Aberdeen.

Ramsay’s move to Liverpool is a major event. Not just in terms of the club record cost that will be paid—£4.5 million upfront plus a further £3.5 million in possible add-ons—but also in terms of the size of the buyer.

Jurgen Klopp has been persuaded that Ramsay has the potential to fill a need in his future plans for the Champions League finalists after one season of consistent first-team play and 39 appearances for his local club.

All of that is not meant to imply that the 18-year-old is a better player than any of the seasoned Scotland internationals named above. He isn’t. At least not yet.

Although Ramsay has the potential to succeed Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool is paying for potential despite having one of the most inventive and successful hiring processes in the world. That is an undeniable honor in and of itself.

According to reports, Liverpool hasn’t decided whether to loan Ramsay out or give him a backup position in the first team for the upcoming season. But now that a five-year deal is about to be finalized, the adolescent essentially controls what happens next.

In Klopp’s team, making a real breakthrough is really difficult. especially if one of England’s most talented players is playing the position you favor. Alexander-Arnold was mentioned by Ramsay as an inspiration when he was named the SFWA Young Player of the Year in April.

The larger issues with Ramsay’s adaptation to the English Premier League are further highlighted by a view across Stanley Park. After moving to Merseyside for £12 million from Rangers, Patterson, who is two years older and has already earned a senior Scotland cap, played just 45 minutes of first-team action last season.

Additionally, Everton’s team is at least one level behind those of its competitors.

The adolescent has so far demonstrated a propensity to take things in stride, but Ramsay will need to continue developing at a high rate to genuinely excel.

He attended Hazlehead Academy for four years before earning his first professional deal with Aberdeen. Like Patterson and Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour, he is a product of the SFA’s performance school system. When he was eight years old, he first joined the club after being given a tryout after being noticed playing for Cove Boys Club.

Both sides have benefited from a ten-year affiliation with the Dons that began with coach Steven Sweeney.

But he didn’t begin as a right-back. Ramsay remembered, “I was actually a center midfielder from the Under-10s up till the Under-15s, so I feel comfortable with the ball at my feet.
Growing up, he supported Aberdeen. Graham, his postal worker father, played football at the Highland League level and is a devoted Dons fan. He stated, “My dad has had a great influence on me. His only goal for me was to play for Aberdeen.

He was also persuaded by his father to play both football and middle-distance running at school. His talent was demonstrated by podium finishes over 2.5 kilometers at the Run Balmoral events, but athletics was never going to replace his main sport.

Ramsay’s standout performances for Aberdeen at the youth level earned him recognition with the Scotland Under-17s and gave him his first taste of the top team when manager Derek McInnes selected him for the substitutes’ bench for a match against Hearts on the first day of the 2019–20 Premiership season.
In March 2021, Ramsay made his professional debut at the age of 17 under interim manager Paul Sheerin, coming off the bench in a 1-0 defeat against Dundee United.

Ramsay made five further appearances after Stephen Glass took over as manager before beginning the 2017–18 campaign as Aberdeen’s starting right-back.

Nine assists and one goal, including eight in the first half of the season, attracted attention from all across Europe. In January, Bologna’s approach was turned down, but Europa League champion Eintracht Frankfurt was interested.
Leeds United provided an English option, but once Liverpool started to compete seriously, there was only ever going to be one plausible place.

Anfield is now waiting. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Ramsay. A chance for Aberdeen to reinvest in a team that is in desperate need of improvement.

Ramsay’s abilities have benefited greatly and quickly by promotion.
