Liverpool have identified the 18-year-old Calvin Ramsay as a long-term rival for Trent Alexander-Arnold with Aberdeen aiming to bank a club-record fee for the talented defender.
The Dons have been locked in talks with the Champions League finalists over the 18-year-old right-back after Liverpool made an initial £4m offer, with £2m in add-ons.
However, it is understood Aberdeen are holding firm and want at least £5m up-front, with £5m in add-ons.
Sky Sports News revealed last week that Ramsay’s preferred choice is to join Liverpool, out of a number of interested clubs in England, Germany and Italy.
In January, Aberdeen rejected a bid for the .er from Bologna – understood to be an £830,000 loan offer, with an obligation to buy for £3.3m.
Their current record sale is £3m from Nottingham Forest for Scott McKenna. The Dons have also received an extra £1m for the centre-back this summer after Forest were promoted to the Premier League.

Liverpool have identified Ramsay as a long-term right-back rival for England star Trent Alexander-Arnold – a .er Ramsay has highlighted as one of his biggest influences.
“As a full-back, watching Trent and his crosses and his technical ability – if I can get to that level then it would be a bonus,” he said.
“Andy Robertson at Liverpool and (Kieran) Tierney at Arsenal have been brilliant and they’re .ers I look up to, especially as they are full-backs like me. I feel I could go on to do that as well.”

Speaking during the season, Dons manager Jim Goodwin wasn’t surprised by the growing interest in the teenager.
He said: “Prior to January, Calvin was probably one of the best young full-backs in the world to be perfectly honest. That is not an over-exaggeration.
“His stats, his data in terms of his attacking numbers, putting crosses in the box were incredible.
“He had a little dip in form. Whether that was because his head was turned in January with whether he was moving or not moving.
The youngster was one of the shining lights for Aberdeen as they endured a tough season in the Scottish Premiership ultimately finishing 10th in the table.
