Liverpool have shifted their focus on Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch after losing out to Chelsea in the race for both Moisés Caicedo and Roméo Lavia.

On August 21st, De Telegraaf stated the 21-year-old is flattered after the Reds showed interest in him. Later that day, Sky Deutschland journalist Florian Plettenberg said Jürgen Klopp’s side would be the favourite to sign the midfielder if Bayern decide to let go of him.

TuttoMercatoWeb now state Liverpool have taken further steps to bring the former Ajax man to Anfield.

It’s said the Bavarian club have received an ‘important offer’ of €48m from the Premier League side.

The Bundesliga winners have ‘rejected’ the bid as they don’t intend to part ways with the Netherlands international this summer.

Thomas Tuchel has already admitted the player, for now, will have a substitute’s role this season.

This hasn’t pleased the Dutchman and is keen to leave the Allianz Arena, but despite this, TMW say Bayern want to retain Gravenberch at all costs.

This is a clear warning to Liverpool, who might have to look elsewhere to help Klopp find a new midfielder as the transfer window clock slowly ticks towards closure in a week’s time.
