Ryan Gravenberch is experiencing a disappointing debut season for FC Bayern. For this reason, a farewell to the central midfielder is already being discussed. An exciting option could arise in the Premier League.
As “Sky” reporter Florian Plettenberg reports, Arsenal FC is monitoring Gravenberch’s situation. The table leader from London is said to have not yet started talks or even concrete negotiations.
Most recently, the 20-year-old was traded again and again at Liverpool FC. The Dutchman’s name has “been mentioned more often” on Anfield Road lately, reported chief reporter Kerry Hau in the podcast “Die Bayern-Woche” for “Sport1”.
Gravenberch switched from Ajax Amsterdam to FC Bayern last summer for around 18.5 million euros. In Munich, however, the eight has so far not gone beyond the role of a supplementary player. In the Bundesliga, Gravenberch has not yet played the full 90 minutes.
Gravenberch farewell from FC Bayern not excluded
“So far it hasn’t gone as expected,” the Oranje professional analyzed his first few months at FC Bayern on the Dutch portal “Ajax Showtime”, but reassured: “It’s a shame for me, but I’m dealing with it well.”
In his career so far, he “never really had a setback up to this season”, but in Munich the development of the midfielder from the Ajax youth team now seems to be faltering. After all: Gravenberch is willing to “turn this experience into something positive”, he wants to “stay strong”, he emphasized.
“Ideally, I would like to be successful at Bayern,” said Gravenberch, adding: “But if that doesn’t work and I don’t get a chance, then I might have to look around.”
