LONDON — Calvin Ramsay said the examples of how young players Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harvey Elliott have flourished at Liverpool persuaded him to join them from Aberdeen for an initial fee of £4.2 million ($5.1 million) on Sunday. اضافة اعلان

The 18-year-old had been linked with several European clubs but opted for Liverpool signing a five-year deal that also includes £2.5m of potential add-ons and a 17.5 percent sell-on clause.

The Scottish under-21 international will join up with Jurgen Klopp’s first team for pre-season training.

“There’s obviously a pathway here,” said Ramsay about the potential for young players to establish themselves in the first team.

“That’s one of the reasons I chose it as well. It’s not just a massive club, they give young players chances in the first team.”

“So if I can come in in pre-season, put my mark down, then there’s no reason why I can’t push to get in the first-team squad.”

Ramsay was named young player of the year by the Scottish Football Writers’ Association after an impressive season.

He played 33 times for Aberdeen, scoring one goal and providing nine assists.

Klopp said he was delighted to have secured another young player with plenty of potentials.  

“He has bags of potential. He is only 18 years old at the moment, although turns 19 soon and already have a decent number of first-team appearances for a defender of his age,”  Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com.

Ramsay is Liverpool’s third arrival this summer following £64m Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica and £5m Fulham forward Fabio Carvalho.
