Bayern Munich may be willing to sell Ryan Gravenberch to Liverpool if they offer £26m.

The Reds have been interested in Gravenberch for the majority of the summer transfer window. But with three midfielders so far signed or set to sign, the Dutchman has remained at Bayern.

Now though, Liverpool look to be ramping up their efforts to bring Gravenberch to Anfield. There have been a flurry of reports suggesting as much today, with German outlet Bild the latest to weigh in.

They claim that the Reds – and Jurgen Klopp in particular – ‘won’t let up’ in their pursuit of the 21-year-old. So much so that they’re efforts to sign him are now ‘intensifying.’

As a result, Liverpool are said to be ready to table an offer of £20m to land Gravenberch. However, although the player is reportedly dissatisfied in Munich, this won’t be acceptable to Bayern. Rather, the perennial German champions ‘could be willing to talk’ if the Reds put down more like £26m.

We’ve got to be honest, we didn’t see Liverpool’s interest in Gravenberch still being a topic at this late stage of the window.

Earlier in the year, the Netherlands international had looked very close to a move to Anfield.

But as the has summer worn on, it’s become clear that Bayern simply don’t want to sell him. As of now, that stance doesn’t really seem to have changed much.

With that in mind, it’s hard to see why they’d accept such a lowly offer from Liverpool for a player who was labelled ‘special’ by GOAL as an 18-year-old.

Yes, Gravenberch wants to leave and so far hasn’t been granted his wish. But by now, you’d have thought that the former Ajax man had partially accepted that he may have to stay.

Bayern haven’t submitted to his demands so far, so why would they suddenly buckle and perhaps leave themselves short?

On the flip side, if Gravenberch is available for £26m, then Liverpool would be wise to take advantage of that. He isn’t the defensive midfielder they’ve been crying out for, but he is a very good player who could take over from Thiago Alcantara next season. Let’s see where this goes.
