Liverpool: Man United could scupper Ryan Gravenberch move

Liverpool: Man United could scupper Ryan Gravenberch move -Liverpool

Liverpool may have suffered a blow in their quest to sign Ryan Gravenberch next summer, with Manchester United linked with snapping him up.

The Lowdown: Reds linked with Gravenberch move

The Reds are eyeing up new signings ahead of next season, with exciting centre-back Ibrahima Konate already joining from RB Leipzig.

One player who has been linked with a move after the 2021/22 campaign is Gravenberch, with the 19-year-old catching the eye for Ajax and being seen as one of Europe’s most exciting young players.

The £29.7million-rated midfielder scored three goals and chipped in with five assists in the Eredivisie last season, making 32 appearances in the competition.

The Latest: Man United could scupper deal

According to Anfield Central, United are also interested in signing Gravenberch, with Liverpool’s bitter rivals keen to talk to his agent, Mino Raiola.

It is stated that the youngster would hopefully prefer working under Jurgen Klopp than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though.

The Verdict: Potential big blow

Gravenberch is a player of immense potential, so Liverpool should do all they can to pip United to the Dutchman’s signature.

With Jordan Henderson and Thiago both 30, and Fabinho also not getting any younger at 27, Klopp needs to plan for the long-term in midfield.

Curtis Jones looks a likely regular well into the future and Gravenberch could be a great foil for him, averaging 2.2 tackles and interceptions apiece in the Europa League last season, showing how effective he is off the ball.

To lose such a prospect, and to a direct rival no less, would be a big blow to the Reds.
