Leeds United are in a ‘market duel’ with Bologna for Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay after the two clubs made their move for the 18-year-old.
That’s according to Gianluca di Marzio, who says there is a ‘real market challenge’ between the two clubs for the youngster’s signature.
He reports that both clubs have made ‘similar’ offers for the defender, but there is one major difference, Leeds have offered to leave him on loan at Aberdeen for the remainder of the season.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side have reportedly bid €3.5m, plus bonuses and a high percentage on a future resale of the Scottish full-back.
Bologna, meanwhile, are offering €1m for a loan with a buy-back fee of €4m. They have proposed a lower percentage on the future sale than Leeds and would like the player to move to Italy right away.
Unfortunately for Leeds, Ramsay has given them ‘priority’ as he would like to play alongside compatriot Aaron Hickey and sees Bologna as a better route for his career.
Aberdeen will decide what to do in the next few hours, with Leeds seemingly needing to do work to convince Ramsay to move to Elland Road.
