Liverpool’s decision to sign Alexis Mac Allister has led to interest in young midfielders such as Khéphren Thuram and Manu Koné in an effort to further strengthen the midfield. Bayern midfielder Ryan Gravenberch is another candidate, a talent they have been eyeing since his days at Ajax.
His first season with the German champions was not a satisfactory one. He failed to gain the trust of former coach Julian Nagelsmann, and although things improved a bit under new coach Thomas Tuchel, he never became a regular.
However, Bayern’s executives and coaches value the player as a long-term talent and have no intention of letting him go after only one year of playing. The Dutch midfielder, who has been complaining about his current situation, admitted that he will likely stay in Germany next season, and was positive that he is aiming for success at the club.
“I am assuming that I will still be at Bayern next season. That is how I am really in it,”
“I am at a top three club in the world. I think that’s beautiful and special. I am not giving up just like that. My goal is still to succeed at Bayern.”Liverpool Echo
Liverpool has been in contact with the agent of him, and the player’s interest has been conveyed. It has been reported that he may apply for a transfer to his club, but in reference to his latest comments, it appears that his mind is set on competing with Bayern.
However, anything can happen in the transfer market. Will the Dutch midfielder, whom Liverpool is keen on, leave Germany after only one season?
