Liverpool and Bayern are now in talks over a deal for the £200,000-a-week (The Mirror)Netherlands international midfielder.
Bundesliga champions Bayern are looking for £20 million in transfer fees for Gravenberch, and Liverpool are confident that they will complete a deal before Friday’s deadline.
90min has added that there is interest in Gravenberch from Manchester United, but it is Liverpool who are in pole position now for the 21-year-old.
Gravenberch is one of the best young midfielders around, and we believe that he would be a very good signing for Liverpool.
The Netherlands international is only 21 now and can certainly develop and improve in the coming years.
That Bayern signed Gravenberch from Ajax in the summer of 2022 shows just how good he is.
Manchester United’s reported interest in the Dutchman is also a testimony to his talent.
The youngster struggled to make an impact at the Allianz Arena last season, but he is just 21 now and will get back to the level he showed at Ajax.
The midfielder made three starts and 21 substitute appearances in the Bundesliga and made two starts and four substitute appearances in the UEFA Champions League for the Bavarian giants last season.
