Liverpool Newsnow: The Times reports that Liverpool is scouting Ryan Gravenberch in preparation for the next season. The team from Liverpool needs to get several new midfielders this summer. They’ve given up on making a strong play for Jude Bellingham and are instead putting their energy towards Gravenberch.
Jurgen Klopp, the manager of the Merseyside club, had nothing but praise for the 20-year-old. The German manager is also quite interested in hiring him. In 2010, Gravenberch enrolled in the Ajax youth program. Before joining the German powerhouses, he rose through the ranks of the club and became an important part of their first team setup.
Unfortunately, his debut season with Bayern Munich has not gone as planned. He has played in 27 games and is just 20 years old. In the Bundesliga, he has played 18 times but has only started once.
The Dutch international has made 27 appearances, logging slightly over 700 minutes of playing time, and contributing to the score twice. Gravenberch is unhappy with his playing time at Bayern and is considering leaving the club.
Liverpool, however, has had a rough season so far. Some of their most reliable midfielders are showing their age. Their play has suffered as a result. So, the team from Merseyside has begun preparing for the next summer transfer window.

Liverpool Newsnow: Ryan Gravenberch, a sensational 20-year-old midfielder for Bayern Munich, is a target for Liverpool
After losing interest in Jude Bellingham, Jurgen Klopp’s squad wants to add numerous midfielders this summer. Gravenberch is a part of his intentions to completely revamp the team’s midfield. This week, club officials travelled to the Netherlands to meet with his father for preliminary negotiations.
A potential move may hinge on the advice of Gravenberch’s father, who has been an important figure in his life. Therefore, the team from Merseyside has already begun negotiations with him. Liverpool will spend about £25 million to get the services of the former Ajax midfielder. It remains to be seen, though, whether Bayern Munich would let their wonderkid depart.
Gravenberch will not be 21 until May, but he has been a senior player for five years already after breaking out at Ajax as a 16-year-old. In 2018, he made his Eredivisie debut for Ajax against PSV Eindhoven, becoming the club’s youngest player in league history. The previous record holder, Clarence Seedorf, had held the title for 26 years.
Gravenberch is a product of the Ajax Academy. He has been a mainstay for the A’s since he transferred from AVV Zeeburgia in 2010. Over the course of four years and 103 games, he recorded 12 goals and 13 assists before signing a £21 million agreement to play for Bayern Munich. He made his debut for the Netherlands national team in 2021 and is of Surinamese heritage like Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum.
