"All is positive." - Klopp praises new addition, former Bayern midfielder Ryan Gravenberch Team

After the departure of a large number of midfielders, including James Milner, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, and Fabinho, Liverpool has been reinforcing its midfield in the summer transfer window.

After acquiring Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Wataru Endo, the club continued its pursuit of more midfielders. Then, as the transfer deadline approached, they pointed the team toward Dutch midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who had had a disappointing time at Bayern Munich.

Jurgen Klopp, who had continued to show strong interest in the player during his time at Ajax prior to his move to the Bundesliga, highly praised the player’s experience and ability in an interview with “Liverpoolfc.com”.

“Really happy to bring him in because he’s an exceptional talent. Everybody knows that. He is 21, played over 100 games for Ajax already.”

“Had a, I wouldn’t even say difficult season at Bayern because in that age group it’s completely normal; you go into a world-class team and he had his minutes and stuff like this. But how Thomas Tuchel said today in the press conference in Munich I think, the position he is best at, they don’t really have in their system. We have that – that’s good. “

“We have a lot of games to play. We will see how long he needs now because I don’t know, we need to have a look at that. He had a full pre-season, that’s good. The medical was as clear as it can be pretty much, looks really fit. That’s all positive.”

“Unfortunately we have now an international break and cannot work directly together, he is I think with the U21s for Holland.”

“But when he is back we start it. Very excited about it. He is a smart boy. When I talked to him I realised that pretty quickly. And he loves to be here, it’s a good thing as well.”
