Liverpool all but guaranteed windfall after source's reveal on new 'Andy Robertson' - pundit

Noel Whelan has suggested Liverpool are all but guaranteed to make money on Calvin Ramsay after agreeing a £6.5million deal with Aberdeen.

The former Dons striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted the 18-year-old could become “another Andy Robertson” at Anfield.

A recruitment source told Football Insider on Friday (17 June) that Liverpool have agreed a fee worth £4million plus £2.5m of add-ons for Ramsay.

He will now undergo a medical before finalising the move.

Whelan suggested Liverpool would, at worst, break even on the young right-back.

However, he insisted the teenager could become a first-team star on Merseyside.

Whelan told Football Insider’s Russell Edge: “It’s a win-win for everybody. For Aberdeen, who need the money, for the young player, who has come through the academy and for backup at Liverpool as well.

“They’re looking to get two players in each position. They’ve done this nice and early, they’ve got that longevity of a player.

“You’re looking at a price tag. It’s not much for a young player with the longevity of what he’s going to have and the coaching that he’s going to get. Whether he plays 10 to 15 games, you know that you’re going to get that money back.

“You’re not going to lose on a player like that. What you might get from a player like that is another Trent Alexander-Arnold or another Robertson. That is invaluable.”

Ramsay has played 39 times for Aberdeen to date.

He has also turned out three times for Scotland’s under-21s.
