Liverpool has signed a new right-back Calvin Ramsay who received a personal call from Jurgen Klopp, MySportDab reports.
This is coming a few days after the Reds have officially announced the arrival of Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
Jurgen Klopp is particularly bent on fortifying the Reds against an anticipated tough 2022-23 Premier League campaign.

Calvin Ramsay is an 18-year-old Aberdeen right-back and will now play alongside defenders such as Alexander-Arnold.
The Scottish side has bagged £6.5m from the deal, which has landed Ramsay at Anfield.
Ramsay has been identified as one of the most talented and promising defenders in the Scottish league.
He has won the SFWA young player of the year in the just-concluded 2021-22 Scottish Premier League season.
MySportDab understands that Liverpool is paying £4m with £2.5m add-ons.
According to Sky Sport News, Ramsay had jetted into England to finalise personal terms with the Merseyside club.
He is also set to complete his medical at the club with a five-year contract package ready for the youngster.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to feature the 18-year-old in his preseason tour, and the Reds are not ready to loan him out.
Ramsay made 33 appearances in all competitions last season, for Aberdeen scoring one goal and recording nine assists.
With the £6.5m fees agreed by the Scottish side, Ramsay is Aberdeen’s record sale.
The deal surpasses the £3m they sold Scott Mckenna to Nottingham Forest.
Ramsay is Liverpool’s third signing of the season after the arrival of Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez.
Several clubs were said to be at the beck of the youngster, but Ramsay made Liverpool his preferred destination.
