Reds Zero in on Gravenberch: Bayern Star Wants Out
Ryan Gravenberch’s patience seems to be wearing thin as he implores Bayern Munich to reconsider their position on his potential departure this summer. From what 90min has gathered, the young midfielder is keen for the club to entertain offers that come their way.
Since signing from Ajax last summer, Gravenberch has found himself playing a marginal role at the Allianz Arena, failing to make an impact under both Julian Nagelsmann and Thomas Tuchel.
Despite his diminished status within the team, sources have informed 90min that Bayern have made it clear they are not planning to let him go. Undeterred, the 20-year-old has demanded that the club at least contemplate the possibility of allowing him to seek a fresh start after a disappointing debut season in Bavaria.
Liverpool have been on the lookout for alternatives to Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, after deciding against pursuing his signature this summer. They are now pushing to secure Gravenberch, either on loan or through a permanent deal that could potentially see Bayern double their initial investment of €18m, with a further €5m in add-ons yet to be paid.
Bayern’s current stance has not deterred Liverpool, as they believe Gravenberch is determined to leave, particularly with Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka being preferred in midfield and the impending arrival of Konrad Laimer from RB Leipzig.
Arsenal and Manchester United are also monitoring the situation, but at this juncture, it seems Anfield could be the most probable destination for Gravenberch.
