Sky Sports journo: Liverpool could seal Gravenberch transfer for scandalously low fee

Posted by

Liverpool’s talks with Bayern Munich over Ryan Gravenberch could be set to gather some serious pace this evening.

The two clubs remain locked in talks over the future of the Dutch international and should surely progress without a hitch given the extraordinarily low asking price of £25.7m, as reported by Sky’s Florian Plettenberg on X, set by the Bavarian giants.

With Palhinha likely to cost around the £60m mark judging by a separate update from the Sky Sports man, one might imagine that the incumbent Bundesliga champions will be particularly keen to get this piece of business with the Reds done first in order to facilitate talks with Marco Silva’s outfit.

That much remains unclear at this stage, however, and, indeed, reporting has bizarrely suggested otherwise despite Bayern’s remarkable spending spree.

An inflated market… where else are Liverpool getting value?

When all is said and done, you really can’t argue with a fee under the £30m mark for a player who very clearly still has a great deal of potential left to be realised.

Compare it to the price-tags slapped on the shoulders of the likes of Cheick Doucoure and Khephren Thuram and it does genuinely feel like we’re getting a top talent for a snip.

Fine, it’s not the young specialist No.6 many will have been crying out for, though Gravenberch has the feel of a potential signing that could be moulded to fit any role Jurgen Klopp wants.

  1. As much as there’s a dire need of reinforcements in the LFC midfield a defender is also a priority not only if LFC hierarchy are naive. Once beaten twice shy saying is an honest truth. LFC can ill afford to experience what happened when Van Dijk was seriously injured at Everton and sidelined for 9 months.It is imperative that LFC adress that department with immediate effect. Therefore LFC could be naive to ignore defence.

    1. Why are Liverpool just letting Amrabat sign for
      Probably the best value available for a tremendous, proven defensive midfielder.

  2. Ryan gravenberch? He’s fourth choice midfielder at Bayern Munich. Two different Bayern managers didn’t want him, they didn’t play him. He hardly played last season. Bayern are selling because they are looking to buy someone better. All this should tell you something.

    It also says why FSG want him. 25 million, fill the squad on the cheap with mediocrity. A 30 year old Japanese player and gravenberch for 40 million.

    Do they replace Henderson and fabinho, no. A huge downgrade in quality. That’s the truth.

    FSG will now bring in another two players on the cheap. Then on the last day of the transfer window, FSG will do what they do best. Sell our best player’s.

    Salah will be sold for 130 million.
    The white flag of surrender is at Liverpool football club. No Ambition, no chance whatsoever of champions league football next season.

    Klopp should resign, he’s wasting his time under charlatan owners FSG.

    Wage bill cut by another 15 million a season. The net spend gets even lower, who’s next to go. Alisson, va dyke. FSG selling Liverpool football club into oblivion.

    Liverpool football club in terminal decline under charlatan owners FSG.
