Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Leeds United are reportedly among the clubs keeping an eye on Scottish whizkid Calvin Ramsay.
According to Mirror, Calvin Ramsay is seemingly becoming one of the most coveted young players in Scotland. The 18-year-old Aberdeen prodigy is enjoying a great level of success in the Premiership and is on the radar of several top clubs across England, including Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United.
All of their scouts have been keeping a close eye on Ramsay, who has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence since being promoted to the Aberdeen senior side in the summer. A right-back by trade, the youngster has racked up 20 competitive appearances this season, notably bagging eight assists.
Four of those assists came in the six UEFA Conference League qualifying matches, although his contributions were not enough to help the Scottish club secure a place in the main draw of the competition. They lost to Qarabag in the final qualifying round with an aggregate of 4-1.
Nevertheless, Ramsay’s performances have caught the attention of multiple English clubs, with Manchester United, in particular, scouting him as a potential long-term fix for the right-back slot.
It is no secret that the Red Devils have struggled due to Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s lack of form and are in the market for a new right-back. They have been linked with a move for former Chelsea whizkid Tariq Lamptey but have been slapped with a staggering £40 million price tag. It has forced Ralf Rangnick to consider other options, with Ramsay appearing to be an excellent cost-effective alternative.
Another potential destination for the young Scot is Tottenham Hotspur. Much like Rangnick, Antonio Conte is looking to add a new face in the right-back slot, someone who can offer competition for Emerson Royal.
The north Londoners have been linked with a swoop for Adama Traore but are open to signing a younger alternative as well. Djed Spence is one of the new names emerging on their shortlist, and the same can be said for the talented Calvin Ramsay.
As for Leeds United, their interest in the Scot stems from a slew of injuries to senior defenders, including Luke Ayling. The club lacks a proper alternative for the right-back, and that is where someone like Ramsay could prove to be an excellent addition. However, it remains to be seen whether any of the Premier League clubs are prepared to take the risk on the 18-year-old, who is yet to complete a full season at Aberdeen.
