Reportedly, Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has expressed his interest in joining Liverpool.
Gravenberch had rejected interest from other major European clubs last summer and chose to leave Ajax for Bayern.
However, the 20-year-old has been struggling to develop at Allianz Arena as he has been frequently seen on the substitutes’ bench.
Out of his 24 appearances in the Bundesliga and Champions League, he has been a replacement in 21 of them, getting only 584 minutes of game time.
Recently, Thomas Tuchel took over the Bayern dugout, and it is believed that Gravenberch could have more opportunities under him.
However, he has only played 27 minutes under Tuchel in three of his five games in charge.
His future has been subject to speculation due to the lack of progress, and it has been reported that Liverpool has tried to initiate talks for a potential deal.
Sky Sports News claims that Gravenberch is “enthusiastic” about joining the Merseyside giants, and he appreciates the level of interest they have shown in him.
Jurgen Klopp plans to refresh his midfield before 2023-24 due to Liverpool’s below-par performance in the Premier League, with the contracts of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain expiring this summer and James Milner’s potentially following the same fate.
Although Liverpool had been interested in signing Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, they withdrew from that chase last week, and Klopp and the club’s owners prefer signing multiple players rather than spending more than £100m on the English player.
Despite the planned arrival of Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig, Bayern is currently against selling Gravenberch.
