The Telegraph reports that Ryan Gravenberch, who will be leaving Bayern Munich, will be the final summer signing of Liverpool. Gravenberch, according to the article, “left Germany for Liverpool by private jet”. He is scheduled to finish the medical exams this morning. If the young Dutchman gets the approval, he will probably be the Merseyside club’s final significant transfer of the summer transfer window.
Gravenberch, who is only 21 years old, is a high-potential signing. He is a graduate of the renowned Ajax youth academy. He also won a transfer to Bayern Munich in 2022. Gravenberch participated in 24 of the 34 Bundesliga games last season, but the player has grown unhappy in recent months due to a lack of consistent playing time. Gravenberch, therefore, wants to secure a move to Liverpool in this summer transfer window.
The young player is called as “an incredible and talented midfielder”. He has drawn attention due to his tremendous potential for years. In the beginning of his career, his combination of physical and technical skill made him a formidable force. However, a lack of regular playing time in the starting lineup has led to his departure from the Bundesliga winners to Liverpool.
Gravenberch won the Eredivisie Talent of the Year and Dutch Footballer of the Year honours in the 2020–21 season. He would end 2021 by winning the Ajax Talent of the Year award.
Summer transfer window of Liverpool
The Reds have had a spectacular and challenging summer. Most notably, Chelsea outbidding Liverpool for both Romeo Lavia and Moises Caicedo, depriving them of two potential generational stars.
Despite these setbacks, Liverpool was successful in acquiring three outstanding players for their midfield. They were in severe need of replacement after losing Fabinho and Jordan Henderson.
Wataru Endo arrived from VfB Stuttgart, Alexis Mac Allister was bought from Brighton & Hove Albion, and Dominik Szoboszlai came from RB Leipzig.
Prior to seeing the outcomes of the first few Premier League weeks, it will be tough to evaluate the transfer window of Liverpool. But Gravenberch will provide the physical presence required in the middle of the park. Also, Gravenberch will be able to provide a deft touch and efficient passing abillity that will be crucial to Jurgen Kopp’s side.
