Liverpool fans are hoping for more movement in the transfer market. The Reds have only made the one signing this summer in Ibrahima Konate despite moving on a number of first team squad members. According to a report, if Liverpool do make a late signing it could be Ryan Gravenberch or a player like him.
Who is Ryan Gravenberch?
19-year-old centre midfielder Ryan Gravenberch plays in the middle for Ajax.
Most often used as a holding midfielder, the Dutchman stands at 190cm tall and was a mainstay of the Ajax starting XI last season.
Known for his long passing, strength and press resistance, he is every inch the modern midfielder.
Meanwhile his height also makes him useful in the air.
Brian Tevreden, a former coach of the teenager’s, described the youngster to Goal:
“Technically, I would say he’s a better version of Pogba in his best days at Juventus, in terms of his technique and his presence on the pitch.
“He’s very dominant like Pogba was, and that’s what I see in Ryan.”
Liverpool could move for Ryan Gravenberch
The Reds have only signed Ibrahima Konate this summer.
Meanwhile the club has been busy moving on a myriad of fringe players.
Marko Grujic was sold to Porto whilst Harry Wilson joined Fulham.
The biggest departure has been that of Gini Wijnaldum, the Dutchman joined PSG on a free transfer.
The Liverpool ECHO has shed some light on potential moves.
A report by the outlet has stated that if Liverpool do make a late move then Ryan Gravenberch is most likely or a player of his ilk, i.e a youngster who would develop within the squad.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Gravenberch would be an ideal move.
However, we can’t see any midfield arrivals being on the cards.
A forward is much more likely given the lack of options in the final third and the looming AFCON callups.
Fingers crossed we’ll see another option added to the attack before the window closes and Gravenberch can come next summer.
