Gravenberch Expresses Desire to Join Liverpool, Bayern Weighs Options


Ryan Gravenberch, the 21-year-old midfielder from Bayern Munich, has been vocal about his desire to leave the club and join Liverpool in the upcoming summer transfer window, according to reports. Despite the ongoing speculation surrounding Gravenberch’s potential move, there has been little progress in finalizing a deal thus far.

German journalist Kerry Hau shed light on Gravenberch’s current sentiments during an interview with Liverpool fan site RedmenTV. Hau emphasized that when a player gives numerous interviews expressing their discontent with their current situation. It raises doubts about their commitment to their current club. Hau revealed that discussions between Liverpool and Gravenberch’s representatives had already taken place back in February. It indicated the player’s strong interest in joining the Premier League and Anfield.

Gravenberch had joined Bayern Munich last year with the expectation of being a regular starter, gaining confidence, and potentially representing the Netherlands in the World Cup. However, he faced disappointment as he didn’t receive the desired playing time at Bayern Munich. And he missed out on international opportunities. Frustrated with his situation, Gravenberch has reportedly expressed his unhappiness to some of his teammates, indicating his desire to leave Munich.

Gravenberch in Discontent due to Lack of Game time

The player’s public statements about his discontent, through multiple interviews, have caught the attention of Bayern Munich. The club is aware of his eagerness to explore new opportunities if he is not considered a starter by manager Thomas Tuchel. However, the abundance of competition in Bayern’s midfield makes it a challenging decision for the club.

From Liverpool’s perspective, the club has the opportunity to acquire a top-quality player. However, it remains unclear why Bayern Munich is determined to retain him. Considering his unhappiness and the strong interest shown by Liverpool. Bayern Munich may need to evaluate the potential benefits of keeping a player who desires a move and could fetch a significant transfer fee.

Bayern Munich has already signed Konrad Laimer and expressed interest in Declan Rice and Moises Caicedo. It indicates the manager’s intention to strengthen the midfield further. Moreover, this situation poses a challenge for Gravenberch, as his chances of securing a starting position in Munich next season seem uncertain, despite club president Herbert Hainer’s claims.

For Liverpool, it is crucial to assess their options and take decisive action. If they believe that Bayern Munich will be reluctant to let go of Gravenberch. They must explore alternative candidates and initiate discussions. Conversely, if there is a genuine possibility of securing his transfer, the club should act promptly. The coming weeks will prove pivotal in determining the outcome of this potential transfer saga.
