Liverpool tipped to agree signing of £21.9million star player before deadline
Liverpool has wasted time during the January transfer window despite knowing how much the team needs a dynamic midfielder.
Paul Robinson, a former goalkeeper for Tottenham, believes the Reds should sign Ryan Gravenberch, a Dutch international, on a late-season loan from Bayern Munich.
The retired England international told Football Insider:
“Gravenberch has not played much this year. He has been a bit-part player at best for Bayern Munich. He has so much potential. Let’s not forget he is still just 20. I think he is a good player from what I’ve seen of him.”
“Perhaps he needs a new manager. He could flourish under somebody like Jurgen Klopp. If Liverpool can get him on loan, why not? It is an area that we all know they need to look at. I would not be against that move.”
Gravenberch is a talented central midfielder, who won multiple league titles with Ajax under the management of Erik ten Hag.
The 20-year-old made direct contributions to 9 goals in all competitions last season, including 7 (2 goals and 5 assists) in the league-championship campaign.
The Dutch Eredivisie giants sold him to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window for a fee of £21.9 million (25 million euros).
However, the youthful midfielder has primarily served as a bench warmer since going to Germany. The Netherlands player has only played 221 minutes in the competition and has yet to start a league game for the Bavarians.
The 11-cap international was unable to secure a spot in Louis van Gaal’s World Cup roster without regular football.
