Ryan Gravenberch signs for Liverpool as the defensive midfielder seeks an exit from Bayern Munich due to limited game time.
Liverpool and Bayern Munich have agreed on a deal worth €40 million plus €5 million in add-ons, and the player has signed a five-year contract with Liverpool. Medical care for the player is arranged. The main part of the document for Ryan Gravenberch is exchanged between clubs, and if all goes well, including the medicals, the defensive midfielder will play for Liverpool this season.
The 21-year-old midfielder joined the German side from Ajax in 2022 for $20 million and only started three Bundesliga games. His lack of game time has led him to prefer a move to another top club, Liverpool. He was a key player at Ajax and was valued as a top-talented player, but he played a total of 24 Bundesliga games and only started three games. He averaged 24 minutes per game and has scored zero goals for Bayern.
Ryan Gravenberch will have his medicals on Friday and will look to complete his potential move to Anfield. Bayern Munich head coach Thomas Tuchel would love to replace Ryan with a more defensive-minded player who can play as a lone six. A negotiation is ongoing with Fulham for Joao Palhinha, with whom the player has agreed to a five-year contract. It all looks smooth on the player side, but an agreement with Fulham is presently not close. As the deadline approaches, Bayern Munich is still expected to complete a deal for a new defensive midfielder.
