Liverpool worked to rebuild its midfielders with the acquisitions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. Then they were hit by the financial power of the Saudis and the unexpected departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, forcing further reinforcements.
Liverpool is serious about Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia, but is also re-focusing on Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who has been a candidate for signing since the season, according to Christian Falk, a German journalist.
The former Ajax midfielder was briefly linked with a move to Anfield during the summer transfer window, but rumors of a move slowly died down as the German champions and coach Thomas Tuchel believed in his potential.
With strong rivals such as Joshua Kimmich, Konrad Laimer, and Jamal Musiala, and still uncertain whether he can become a regular, it is not surprising that Liverpool continues to be interested.
Bayern’s stance, however, remains the same and will be difficult to persuade. He is only 21 years old and has potential that is too good to give up after only one year, and with the background of acquiring him with a medium- to long-term view, it is not realistic for him to head to Liverpool.
Only Liverpool, which pursues defensive midfielders, would not give priority to a player whose main job is not the bottom of midfield. On the other hand, we cannot rule out the possibility of acquiring another midfielder in addition to a midfielder whose strength lies in winning the ball.
The Dutch midfielder is likely to spend his second year in the Bundesliga, as most believe, but with the start of the domestic league season approaching, could this be an unexpected reinforcement…?
