According to a report from Mirror, Earlier this year, representatives of Ryan Gravenberch held discussions with Liverpool, and the talented Dutch midfielder has now expressed his thoughts on the potential of leaving Bayern Munich for a transfer.
Gravenberch’s Underwhelming Season In German Football
Gravenberch has struggled to secure a regular starting role at the Allianz Arena throughout the current season. The talented Dutch midfielder has appeared in 32 matches for Bayern Munich, contributing with one goal and one assist across all competitions.
Despite his limited game time, the 21-year-old has managed to maintain a respectable level of performance, averaging 0.7 tackles, 0.3 interceptions, 0.3 clearances, 0.5 shots, 0.3 key passes, and 0.5 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. He has also showcased his precision in passing, completing 89.6% of his attempted passes in the German top flight. (stats via whoscored)
Should Klopp Bring Him To Liverpool?
Gravenberch showcases his abilities as a proficient tackler and an adept interceptor when he is given consistent playing time and confidence on the field, particularly in the centre of the park.
The Dutch prodigy possesses exceptional vision, allowing him to create scoring opportunities for his teammates, and his impressive dribbling skills make him an exciting player to watch. While primarily known as a box-to-box midfielder, Gravenberch can seamlessly adapt to a defensive midfield role if required.
Bringing Gravenberch to the Reds would inject additional energy and dynamism into Jurgen Klopp’s midfield. His arrival would undoubtedly intensify competition for places within the squad and bolster the Reds’ pursuit of major silverware in the upcoming seasons.
Under Klopp’s guidance, Gravenberch would have been the ideal mentor to unlock his full potential. Regular first-team starts are crucial for his development, and the Merseyside club could provide the perfect platform for him to flourish.
