Liverpool, working on a generational change in their midfielders, acquired Alexis Mac Alistair and Dominik Szoboszlai. At the same time, Bayern midfielder Ryan Gravenberch was also reportedly a target, but the deal did not move forward as his club refused to release him.
With the departure of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, Liverpool, seeking a new midfielder, remained interested in the Dutch midfielder, but since a defensive midfielder was a priority, they first brought Japan midfielder Wataru Endo into the team.
Nevertheless, they are still planning to further strengthen their midfield, and the name of Gravenberch as a leading candidate has been making the rounds in the media. Sky Sport Germany’s Florian Plettenberg reported that the club could make a serious move as the transfer window closes.
“Feeling is that Liverpool could push for Ryan Gravenberch in the next days.”
“Bayern is waiting for concrete offers as he’s the No. 4 in central midfield under Thomas Tuchel.”
“Gravenberch wants to play regularly and is unhappy with his situation. The player has not been informed of a potential swap deal so far.”
“Gravenberch, one to watch until Deadline Day.”

The lanky midfielder, who is also of interest to Manchester United, is a more attacking player and is expected to be used at inside half for Liverpool. His dynamic style of play with his long limbs is similar to that of England midfielder Jude Bellingham, who moved to Real Madrid.
With the deadline looming, will Liverpool be able to acquire the Dutch midfielder they have been interested in for some time?
