According to journalist Rudy Galetti, the German coach as originally not sold on the 21-year-old as a signing this summer, though Klopp has now changed his mind about Liverpool moving for Gravenberch.

Reportedly valued at £43m, the Dutch international is one of a handful of players Liverpool are eyeing as their fourth and potentially final midfield signing of the summer.

And it now appears that Klopp is sold on a move for Gravenberch, with Bayern fighting hard to keep hold of the youngster despite his wishes to leave.

Galetti said: “Gravenberch on his side is climbing position in the preferred list of Liverpool. The Dutch midfielder could leave Bayern Munich in the next two weeks.

“Jurgen Klopp was not convinced by him in the past, but is now changing his mind about Gravenberch. I’m told he is becoming a concrete solution for the Liverpool midfield.”

Klopp’s influence at Liverpool needs no introduction, yet the boss changing his mind on signing Gravenberch could now be the key to the midfielder heading to Anfield.

Signings this summer have been made with Klopp’s vision in mind, and Gravenberch now winning the German manager’s approval could soon lead to the youngster making the move to Merseyside.

Indeed, Klopp is a manager who can take Gravenberch’s game to a new level, and the Dutch youngster can flourish at Liverpool if a deal can be done in the coming days.
