Liverpool are pushing for Ryan Gravenberch and now it is a close deal for them. He was signed by Bayern the last summer but hasn’t been provided with much game time.
The 20-year-old has been provided with just four starts and 20 substitute outings. He has accumulated a total of 684 minutes in all competitions.
It seems that he had a frustrating first season at Bayern since departing Ajax.
Liverpool are ready to take the advantage of the current situation and sign the Netherlands international.
However, with Matheus Nunes and Jude Bellingham being Liverpool’s priority targets, they have to find backups if they fail to land any of them.
Career so far
The midfielder is known to be an exciting talent for the world of football. He joined Ajax Youth Academy in 2010 and worked his way up through the junior levels.
However, he made his senior debut with Ajax on 23 September 2018 and became the youngest Ajax player to play in the Eredivisie at 16 years and 130 days.
From 2018 to 2022, he played for Ajax and had an impressive stint. In 2022, he signed for Bayern Munich on a five-year contract. Ajax received a reported fee of 18 million, with an additional 5 million in variables.
Although Gravenberch has done nothing to increase his price tag, Bayern will look out to make a profit from the sale, citing the player’s potential.
The relevant parties are in advanced talks over the deal but it doesn’t states whether it would be permanent or temporary.
In conclusion, the midfielder would now be focusing on Bayern for the rest of the campaign, looking to earn more game time.
