Liverpool have completed the signing of Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch.

The Reds have sought to strengthen their options in midfield during the summer transfer window, particularly following the departures of experienced duo Fabinho and club captain Jordan Henderson to Saudi Arabia.

Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo have all come through the Anfield door, and they have now been joined by Netherlands international Gravenberch.

90min first reported back in April that Liverpool were monitoring Gravenberch’s situation at Bayern Munich. He was a bit-part figure during his first season at the Allianz Arena following last summer’s move from Ajax.

Later that month90min revealed that Gravenberch had asked Bayern Munich to be allowed to at least look at potential exit routes during the summer window.

Liverpool maintained their interest throughout the summer before finally making a firm push to sign the 21-year-old in the final days of the window.

They agreed a fee with Bayern Munich on Thursday before wrapping up Gravenberch’s signing late on deadline day.

Liverpool fans feared that Bayern Munich’s inability to sign Joao Palhinha from Fulham earlier on Friday would have scuppered their plans to bring in Gravenberch, but the German champions were still happy to sanction his move to Merseyside.
