Liverpool could make move for 'disillusioned' Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch

Liverpool could make a move for 'disillusioned' Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, according to fresh reports.
Hopes of a place in next season's competition have all but diminished too, with the Reds currently 12 points adrift of the top four.
Their form has left Klopp with an eagle on the summer transfer window, as he looks to freshen up his ageing midfield.
Among the names linked with a move to Anfield is 20-year-old Gravenberch, who they missed out on signing last summer.
Gravenberch to Liverpool?
Gravenberch joined Bayern from Ajax in a deal worth around €18 million (£16m) last June but has only managed 17 appearances in the Bundesliga, with 16 of those coming off the bench.
While he was an unused substitute during their 3-0 Champions League defeat to Manchester City on Tuesday.
The report states that should he not be given assurances over his playing time at the Allianz Arena, the Dutchman will try his luck elsewhere.
Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy reckons it is a sensible position, believing the Merseyside club would be better served looking elsewhere.
“The noises from Anfield suggest the decision [to end their pursuit of Jude Bellingham] is practical, which if viewed in isolation, is a fair stance," said Reddy.
"The scale of work needing to be done means spending in excess of £100m on one talent - regardless of how phenomenal he is - would not be wise for a business that operates within its means.”
Reddy also suggested Liverpool could reignite their interest in Gravenberch, believing the Netherlands international has become 'disillusioned' in Germany.
“Liverpool could return to Gravenberch, who is disillusioned with his lack of minutes at Bayern, and have been assessing Salzburg's Luka Sucic as well as Teun Koopmeiners from Atalanta,” she added.
