Liverpool are paying an initial £4million, which will be increased by a further £2.5million in add-ons linked to appearances and trophy success for the 18-year-old defender.

Scotland Under-21 international Ramsay is close to signing a five-year contract and is expected to travel to Merseyside at the weekend.

Ramsay will be Klopp’s third signing of the window after signing Benfica striker Darwin Nunez for a potential £85m fee and Fabio Carvalho, the 19-year-old Fulham midfielder, for £7.7m.

And that will be it for the window if Klopp is happy his strengthened squad can once again challenge on four fronts next season.

The Reds were thought to be interested in adding a new midfielder up front but that was parked until next year.

England star Bellingham is the man Klopp really wants but Borussia Dortmund will not approve another big-name exit following Erling Haaland’s move to Manchester City.

And next summer the Anfield club will likely have time to strengthen that department as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita enter the final 12 months of their current contracts.

The Reds are awaiting a third offer from Bayern Munich for Sadio Mane, while Monaco and Lyon are interested in Takumi Minamino.

But Klopp is happy his new purchases will offset those losses.

Ramsay is one for the future after making his breakthrough in the Scottish Premiership last season.

The full-back made 33 appearances and his impressive performances won him the Scottish Football Writers’ Young Player of the Year award.

Ramsay’s fee tops the previous best the Scottish Premiership side received for Scott McKenna when he joined Nottingham Forest for £3million in September 2020.
