West Ham keeping tabs on Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay

West Ham United are keeping tabs on Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay ahead of January, according to The Scottish Sun.

The 18-year-old Scotland under-21 international was watched by Everton on Saturday and his performance shot him to the top of their winter transfer watch-list after blowing away a top Goodison Park scout.

Leicester City and Southampton are also said to be interested in recruiting his services.

The Hammers made three outfield additions to their squad in the summer and appear to be already preparing for the next transfer window.

One for the future?

West Ham currently have Vladimir Coufal as their first-choice right-back, with
Ryan Fredericks providing cover and competition.

However, the Czech Republic international is 29, while his English counterpart is 28, and David Moyes needs to start preparing for the future as far as a long-term successor in the position goes.

The Scot is known for getting shrewd and quality additions for his squad in recent transfer windows, and a move for his fellow countryman could be on the cards.

Despite his tender years, Ramsay has already established himself as a key player for Aberdeen, with 10 appearances across all competitions to his name this term.

The teenage sensation has an assist in five Scottish Premiership games so far in 2021-22, and he could soon be plying his trade in the Premier League if he keeps impressing in the coming weeks and months.
