Liverpool the likeliest destination for £151k-p/w dynamo who wants out of current club – report

Posted by

According to reports from Germany, Liverpool appear to lead the race to sign a midfielder who wants out of his current club.

Sport1 claimed that Ryan Gravenberch is determined to leave Bayern Munich before Friday night’s transfer deadline, with his representatives informing the Bundesliga champions’ hierarchy of his desire for a move.

Anfield is cited as ‘the most likely destination’ for the 21-year-old, with the Reds having been in contact with the player’s camp ever since February, although his former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is also interested in trying to sign him for Manchester United.

If Liverpool are to sign a midfielder in the final three days of the transfer window, Gravenberch may well be the strongest candidate to come in.

Neil Jones told Empire of the Kop’s Substack that he’d have the Dutchman ‘highest on the list’ of potential midfield incomings this week, while Graeme Bailey claimed in recent days that Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel would be happy to jettison the wantaway 21-year-old.

Even with the Reds signing three midfielders already this summer, there’s still a sense that one more is needed to ensure that Jurgen Klopp has the necessary depth in that department, hence why the £151k-per-week man (Capology) remains a live target.

Similar to another Liverpool-linked engine room operator in Kalvin Phillips, Gravenberch has found himself on the periphery at his current club, starting just three Bundesliga games since his move to Munich a year ago (WhoScored).

It’s no wonder he seems determined to get out of the Allianz Arena, and considering how long he’s been wanted at Anfield, he’d surely enjoy a far greater opportunity to prove himself on Merseyside.

It’d be hugely satisfying to finally get the Dutchman through the door after months of interest, especially if the Reds can fend off United in the chase for his signature.

  1. After Virgil’s vocal abuse of the referee on Sunday he should be demoted from wearing the captain armband and his subsequent ban means we need a competent centre back more urgently than another midfielder.

  2. Yes, vvd’s behaviours towards the refs on Sunday were embarrassing and unprofessional, particularly as he’s a club captain. Should the FA punish him further for dissent/conduct unbecoming? Probably.

    But it’s not like he snotted a ref and brought shame on the club, he simply got upset and uppity. In the heat of the moment he made some rather common mistakes but as far as I know he hasn’t repeatedly acted that way in the past.

    Your call to take away his captaincy is ridiculous. OTOH it’s an absolutely brilliant idea if you wanted to destabilise and demoralise the squad straight after a fantastic win.

    Should you disown your own mam if she burned the Sunday roast?
    Show some loyalty ya brat! and YNWA.
