Who is Ryan Gravenberch?

There are plenty of players touted as the next best thing but this kid looks like he’s the real deal.

An undroppable member of the first team at just 18-years-old, the Dutch wonderkid looks destined for greatness.

This season the centre midfielder has scored three and assisted three in 25 appearances in the league, earning a WhoScored rating of 7.32.

An excellent passer of the ball he’s also lauded for his dribbling ability and strength in the air.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, via The Express, Liverpool want Ryan Gravenberch to fill Gini’s shoes.

The wonderkid is reportedly valued at £30m and Chelsea are also said to be interested in his signature.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Gravenberch would be incredibly exciting.

The kid is one of the first names on the team sheet at Ajax despite only being 18-years-old, he must have talent.

The youngster has more than a decade ahead of him in the game, this would be an ideal FSG move.

In six or seven years time his value will likely have skyrocketed, this should be a no brainer of a move.
