Ryan Gravenberch not for sale despite Arsenal and Liverpool interest
Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has been blocked of a possible summer move away from the German club, despite interest from various foreign clubs, according to reports.
The Dutchman has struggled for regular minutes ever since his move from Ajax last summer, having made 27 appearances in all competitions this season, with only four of them coming as starts.
As a result, German journalist Florian Plettenberg has reported that the 20-year-old is unhappy with his situation and the club, prompting interest from the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.
However, he also states that the player has been deemed as 'definitely not for sale' in the summer, both for the club's bosses and for Thomas Tuchel.
As a result, Bayern Munich won't listen to offers, as they all believe in him.
He reports that the German club's management believes that Gravenberch will have a breakthrough season next year.
Arsenal are determined to add to their midfield options next summer, as they seek to push on from this season's title charge with more strength in depth to continue challenging for more trophies next season.
On the other hand, Liverpool are in desperate need of midfielders this summer, with the likes of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both poised to leave the club, as they seek to recover from what has been a disappointing season on all front for Jurgen Klopp's side.
Gravenberch arrived for €18.5 million from Ajax last summer, after some impressive seasons in the Eredivisie under Erik ten Hag. His former manager is reportedly still a big fan of the the midfielder, also opening up Manchester United as a possible destination.
Despite United's interest, Arsenal and Liverpool remain the favourites to land his signature, but it remains to be seen whether Bayern will be persuaded to move Gravenberch on.
