Thomas Tuchel hints where Ryan Gravenberch will play at Liverpool after Bayern Munich transfer

Thomas Tuchel hints where Ryan Gravenberch will play at Liverpool after Bayern Munich transfer

The Netherlands international is poised for a deadline day switch to Anfield.

Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel has spoken on Ryan Gravenberch's upcoming exit from the Bundesliga club - and where the midfielder is likely to play for Liverpool.

The 21-year-old midfielder landed in the UK on Friday morning - transfer deadline day - after Liverpool agreed a deal worth around an initial £34 million with Bayern.

Gravenberch has been at the German giants since last summer after moving to the Allianz Arena from Dutch side Ajax but looks set to head to the Premier League after only a year in Bavaria.

His signing will complete a central midfield transformation at Liverpool, with an engine room now vastly different from the options available to Jurgen Klopp at the end of last season.

Gravenberch will form part of a central midfield quartet acquired this summer, which also comprises Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo.

Several midfielders have waved goodbye to Anfield in recent months, including Naby Keita, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, who have either been sold or departed following the expiry of their contracts.

Gravenberch has several shirt numbers from which to choose from within the Liverpool squad, with a dream selection still available.

During Klopp's time at Liverpool, he has often opted for a 4-3-3 formation at Anfield, allowing his side have numbers in central midfield and deploy fearsome attacking trios to pose a threat to opposition teams.

And discussing his midfielder's impending exit, Bayern boss Tuchel has spoken on why Gravenberch is departing the Allianz Arena - and explained the Netherlands international's desire to operate in a 4-3-3 formation at Anfield as among his motivations to move to Klopp's side.

Tuchel said: "He wasn't happy with his situation here as he sees the chance in Liverpool to fight for a place in a 4-3-3.

"He's wanted to go for a while. An offer came in, we discussed it.

"The outcome is clear."
