It is an open secret that Liverpool need to sign a midfielder.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Liverpool are monitoring Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch.
The 19-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Gravenberch has been at Ajax since 2010 when he joined from Zeeburgia. The 19-year-old’s contract at Ajax is set to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.
The midfielder registered 5 goals and 6 assists in 47 appearances across all competitions last season.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 19-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
The Ajax midfielder has also represented the Netherlands at various youth levels before going on to secure 7 senior caps for his country thus far.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
The Reds are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 19-year-old as potential transfer target.
Jürgen Klopp has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He is a long term admirer of Gravenberch and believes he can get the most out of the Netherlands international.
Liverpool are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The Netherlands international will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Liverpool are keeping watch on the situation of Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch. The Reds have been tentatively linked with the talented teenager in recent months, as have a host of other clubs across Europe. Goal says Liverpool are “certainly fans” of Gravenberch, who is currently away with the Netherlands national team at the Euros. The report goes on to say that, while Liverpool are admirers, it does not translate into transfer interest, with many other clubs likely to to be fans of the midfielder. Liverpool are weighing up buying a midfielder after losing Gini Wijnaldum to PSG.”

Ajax are reluctant to let Gravenberch go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
Ryan Gravenberch ideal fit for Liverpool?
If Ryan Gravenberch is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Liverpool.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Given Gravenberch’s talent and potential, he would be a very good signing for Liverpool in the long run.
If Klopp sees him as the right man for his side, Liverpool should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
