Liverpool news and transfers LIVE – Calvin Ramsay deal ‘finalized’, Fabinho’s wish, Tottenham’s reaction
Calvin Ramsay ‘would prefer Liverpool’
Calvin Ramsay would choose Liverpool or Leeds United in the summer transfer window, according to former Scotland manager Alex McLeish.
The Reds need top-quality defensive cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold and 18-year-old right-back Ramsay has produced a string of impressive performances for Aberdeen this season in the Scottish Premier League.
McLeish told Football Insider: “I would imagine if I was in that position right now I want to go to Liverpool. Because of the size of the club, because of the absence of any chance of relegation. Even though I’ll be Trent Alexander-Arnold’s understudy for a few years, I’m going in and out.
“You have a deadline to develop. Then if you end up cutting it at Liverpool, you’ve almost won the World Cup, haven’t you? I would expect a young player to think that. Not thinking, “Well, Leeds are about to be relegated to the Championship. Maybe I’ll play more games in there.
“It’s a tough and flourishing league, the championship. Any team can win any day. Even the bottom teams can beat the top teams. If Liverpool and Leeds are for him, I think he would choose Liverpool all day.
