Liverpool midfield target ‘has told’ teammates he wants to leave, Reds willing to offer £200, 000 per week

Liverpool could be getting closer to landing their second midfielder of this summer transfer window.

Liverpool have been eyeing a number of other midfield targets following their acquisition of Alexis Mac Allister. Ryan Gravenberch of Bayern Munich is one man topping the priority list and there’s been another promising update in the Reds’ pursuit of his services.

It has already been reported that Jurgen Klopp’s wishes are to bring the Dutch talent to Anfield, and the club management is ready to back him. Liverpool have also agreed to match his current salary if a move is actualized, which is £200,000 per week.

Now, the latest update has made it very clear where Gravenberch stands in terms of a potential move this summer. According to reporter Kerry Hau, the midfielder has confided in some of his teammates over his frustration as a result of lack of playing time.

Gravenberch only joined the German champions last year, but is already unhappy with his present situation, having made just 24 appearances, with the majority coming from off the bench.

“Last year he joined Bayern because they promised he would be a starter, to start matches and to gain confidence, also the possibility to go with the Netherlands to the World Cup and in the end, he didn’t play for Bayern Munich and didn’t go,” Hau told RedMenTV.

“He became frustrated, he already told some teammates that he is not happy at Bayern and would like to leave. It’s always a sign as a player if you speak in public that you are not happy. It was not one interview, it was now five, six interviews.”

Gravenberch rose into the spotlight with boyhood club Ajax and commanded a lot of attention after establishing himself as a key player in the Eredivisie. Bayern signed the 21-year-old for £16 million last summer and he is now valued at £25.6 million by Transfermarket.

Liverpool have made it clear that their priority this summer is to reinforce their midfield and with interest in Gravenberch accelerating, they could be inches closer to their next signing.
