Bayern Munich did an exceptional job when it came to selling players at a good price last summer. The Bavarian club is expected to shuffle the squad this summer since they need key profiles to remain competitive in Europe. Bayern is expected to sell a few fringe players, but they will also have to deal with bids for players that they don’t want to sell.
Ryan Gravenberch is generating significant interest from Premier League despite struggling for game time at Bayern this season. The Dutch midfielder has managed only one Bundesliga start this season. Bayern chiefs continued to insist that Gravenberch remains part of their long-term plans, but the Dutch midfielder may look to force a move after one season in Germany.
According to Christian Falk (via iMiaSanMia), Gravenberch will soon tell Bayern about his desire to join Liverpool in the summer. The Dutch midfielder is determined to work with Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, but Thomas Tuchel may try to convince him to stay in Bavaria.
Liverpool reportedly held talks with Gravenberch’s father to explore a summer transfer. The Dutch midfielder is one of their top targets to revamp the midfield for next season. The Ajax graduate may get more playing time at Anfield if he manages to seal a move in the summer.
Apart from Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United have also been linked with a move for Ryan Gravenberch. Manchester United’s Erik Ten Hag tried to sign Gravenberch last summer, but he had already agreed a transfer to Bayern. The Dutch manager may try to sign him once again if Die Roten agrees to part ways with the midfielder.
For now, Bayern is insisting that Gravenberch will not be going anywhere in the summer. However, things may change drastically if Die Roten manages to sign one more midfielder. Thomas Tuchel reportedly wants a ball-playing midfielder that can partner Joshua Kimmich in the center of the park. The German coach is reportedly eager to bring Chelsea’s Mateo Kovacic to Munich.
The record Bundesliga champions have already agreed a deal to sign Konrad Laimer on a free transfer. The Austrian midfielder will arrive in Bavaria at the end of the season when his contract at RB Leipzig comes to an end.

With two midfielders arriving in the summer, Gravenberch’s chances of playing regularly in Munich will be further diminished. The record Bundesliga champions may have to reluctantly grant his wish for a transfer if a concrete offer arrives from Liverpool or other Premier League clubs.
