Gravenberch stands on the verge of a move to Liverpool, putting an end to a miserable season in Germany with Bayern.

Having arrived with a reputation as one of the most promising young midfielders in Europe, plenty was expected of the former Ajax man in Bavaria.

But having played just 568 minutes of Bundesliga football he’s once again on the move. And according to The Athletic, sources at Bayern were disappointed with the 21-year-old.

Speaking anonymously, one source claims that the German champions didn’t see enough determination from Gravenberch.
