After suffering the unexpected departures of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, Liverpool secured a defensive midfielder by acquiring Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo, despite twists and turns.
Since then, Liverpool has been searching for a type of midfielder who can play at the bottom of midfield or as an inside half.
Liverpool have been linked with various players, including Fluminense midfielder Andre and Crystal Palace midfielder Cheick Doucouré, but just before the transfer window closed, the club wrapped up negotiations with Bayern and were successful in landing Dutch midfielder Ryan Gravenberch.
Finally, an official announcement was made by the club. The club agreed on a fee of €40 million, and he went to Liverpool to undergo a medical check and sign contract documents, signing a five-year contract until 2028, giving him the opportunity to play at Anfield in a clear-cut deal. He will wear the number “38”.
In the transfer market last summer, he moved from Ajax to Bayern Munich. He was unable to secure a starting spot at the German champions and spent a lot of time on the bench, complaining about his lack of playing time. Initially, the club evaluated the player’s potential and ruled him non-releasable, but had a change of heart in the final stages of the transfer deadline.
He will be involved in a fierce battle for position at Liverpool, but he must not be corrupt and must perform hard not only in the games he plays in, but also on the training ground.
The big midfielder, who is also attractive at 21 years of age, will be making a fresh start at a new club. How will this talented player, who is highly regarded by Jurgen Klopp, perform in his new club?
