Wijnaldum's hours with Liverpool's red elastic have an expiration date. On June 30 the contract ends and the agreement seems chimerical at the moment. Klopp still considers him indispensable, but the future of the 30-year-old midfielder is close to Barcelona. Thus, set net prepares to find his replacement. If Teun Koopmeiners appeared days ago, now it is Ryan Gravenberch's name that is gaining strength.
At 18, Gravenberch has become a fundamental piece in Erik ten Haag's schemes at Ajax. Compared for his way of playing and his physique (he measures 1.90m) with Paul Pogba, La Gazzetta dello Sport It puts you on the radar of reigning Premier League champions, as well as putting a price on you: 35 million euros. Despite his age, the midfielder has already been a top international three times. with the Netherlands and this season has been the one of its establishment in the elite.
Tuchel also has something to say
But it will not be an easy battle, since the Italian newspaper slides another name: Chelsea is also interested. The Blues, with Tuchel at the helm, they do not lose sight to one of the brightest projects in Europe and the economic potential that sustains them, in addition to an exciting sports project, they appear as a fearsome rival for Klopp when it comes to removing Ryan from Amsterdam.
The player is represented by Mino Raiola, an expert in juicing operations, so it will be interesting to see how this war ends. And it is that, in the past, Juventus, Barça and United have already knocked on his door. Much high-sounding name in the battle for a midfielder who is more and more disgraced by the day. Gravenberch is tireless and this year he has already accumulated 3,146 minutes (37 games). A lung that both Klopp and Tuchel hope to direct the next course.
