Gravenberch latest, Phillips loaned & fitness updates – Latest LFC News

Liverpool look to be closing in on a fourth midfield signing this summer, but it looks as though it could go to the wire.


Gravenberch “ready” for move

As the clock ticks closer towards Friday’s transfer deadline, Ryan Gravenberch remains a Bayern Munich player for the time being.

News broke on Wednesday evening that the Reds were holding “talks” with the German champions over a deal to bring the midfielder to Anfield.

The Dutchman was absent from his side’s training session on Thursday as the two clubs continued to work towards a deal, although it is believed that “no total agreements” have been made.

Sky Germany‘s Florian Plettenberg has indicated that Gravenberch is “ready to join Liverpool” but it appears we may be forced to wait until late in the day to see whether the deal gets done.

Plettenberg has also reported that Bayern have reached a “verbal agreement” to sign Joao Palhinha from Fulham, which could pave the way for Gravenberch’s exit.
