After losing James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as well as Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, Liverpool has been moving around in the transfer market with a priority on strengthening its midfielders.
As originally intended, they signed Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai before the start of preseason. However, the Saudi Arabian push resulted in a renewed search for a midfielder, and the team welcomed Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo to the squad.
The search for a new midfielder continued until the last minute of the transfer window, with Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch the most realistic target, and a move for the big midfielder who has been a focus of attention since his days at Ajax before moving to the Bundesliga could be on the way.
According to The Athletic, Liverpool are negotiating with Bayern Munich for the player’s permanent transfer. The deal is still far from settled, and it is not even certain that it will be completed. Nevertheless, the two clubs are still working out their respective valuations.
If Bayern’s demand is at a level that they can pay, Liverpool is expected to make a formal offer as is. The Dutch midfielder has been frustrated by the way he has been treated by the German champions and is said to be open to playing at Anfield.
However, even if an agreement is reached between the clubs as well as the player’s side, the transfer will not move forward until Bayern can secure a replacement. Other media outlets are reportedly interested in Fulham’s Portuguese midfielder João Palhinha, who could replace the 21-year-old midfielder in midfield.
In any case, it is true that negotiations are underway, and Liverpool will not hesitate to sign him, depending on the price.
Will everything be cleared up and the former Ajax midfielder be officially announced as a Reds player by the transfer deadline?
