Transfer latest: Liverpool chase Calvin Ramsay, Juventus confident on Pogba | Transfer window

Liverpool are in talks to sign the 18-year-old right-back Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen. The Scotland Under-21 international is open to the move and the Premier League club hope progress can be made in negotiations over a fee.

Ramsay played 24 league games for Aberdeen in the 2021-22 season, after breaking into the first team towards the end of the previous campaign, and is regarded by Liverpool as having the talent to compete for a place in the immediate term as well as being one for the future.

Ramsay, born in Aberdeen, won the Scottish Football Writers’ Association’s Young Player of the Year award at the end of April.

Juventus are increasingly confident Paul Pogba will rejoin them. With Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid focused on different targets, the Serie A club aim to finalise a deal with the midfielder, who is leaving Manchester United at the end of his contract.

Pogba has been offered a net salary of about €8m (£6.8m) a year, plus potentially lucrative bonuses, by Juventus and final details are due to be discussed by the club with his agents. Pogba played for Juventus from 2012-16.

Juventus are also waiting for an answer from Ángel Di María after offering the Argentina international the chance to sign when his PSG contract expires at the end of this month. Di María’s agent has held talks with Barcelona as well.

Another former United player, Nemanja Matic, is poised to join José Mourinho at Roma on a one-year deal with an option to extend for a further season. The midfielder played under Mourinho at Old Trafford and Chelsea.

Napoli are in advanced negotiations to sign the centre-back Leo Östigard from Brighton. The Premier League club want more than the €3m offered but Napoli are confident of securing the Norway international, who has not played for Brighton’s first team but has had a series of loans, most recently at Genoa.
