In a recent report, The Sun stated that Leeds United are to compete with Liverpool in an attempt to Hijack Calvin Ramsay, a teenage sensation who has become a regular in the Scottish Premiership this season but looks set to head south this summer.
Ramsay, who is contracted to Aberdeen until 2024, is said to be available for just £3 million and would be a huge bargain for any team which eventually manages to sign him.
Ramsay’s Impressive Run Of Form At The Pittodrie Stadium
The 18-year-old has been a prominent feature for Aberdeen during this campaign and has performed well at the centre of their backline. Ramsay has featured in 27 matches for the Scottish club since 2021 across multiple competitions.
The talented teenager has proven himself to be a rock at the back for Aberdeen based on his average of 1.3 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.1 clearances, 0.5 shots, 1.6 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per game in the Scottish Professional Football League. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after making 75.4% of his attempted passes in the Scottish Premiership (stats via whoscored).
Should Jesse March Bring Him To Leeds United: Is He A Prospect For The Future?
Ramsay is a decent tackler of the ball and he can time his challenges well to earn the ball back on the defensive end of the field but needs to improve on other aspects of his game. He can clear his lines when needed and is proficient at playing his way out from the right back. The youngster is adept at holding the ball and creating chances from the wide areas with the use of crosses and penetrating through-balls.
Hence, there is no doubt that Ramsay is a prospect for the future. He is good enough to earn a regular starting spot at Elland Road over the coming years with Luke Ayling still in his prime despite being 30 years old.
However, there are some concerns over whether Ramsay will be able to maintain his impressive run of form in the Premier League. The road to top-flight football can be highly intense and could demand a lot of work day in day out.
At 19, the future remains bright for the Scottish youngster as long as he continues to improve with each season. Therefore, Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch should think about making a move to land him in the summer as he will be a prominent signing for the Whites in the long run. Plus, he could be developed and then cashed in for great value in the future as long as he goes on to fulfil his true potential.
