Exclusive confirmed by Neil Jones as Liverpool plan to sign €33million midfielder

Neil Jones has confirmed Liverpool’s interest in signing Dutch talent Ryan Gravenberch just as Anfield Central reported on the 8th of June.

Georginio Wijnaldum is set to join PSG after the EUROs but the Netherlands skipper could make way for his compatriot to move to Anfield.

Reliable Liverpool journalist Neil Jones reported this week that the Reds are interested in the midfield monster but he did go on to say that there will be competition from ‘just about every top club in Europe.’

It’s confirmation of an exclusive published by yours truly for Anfield Central on June 8th when I wrote that although his current plan is to remain at Ajax for another year, Liverpool have the intention to open preemptive talks to get their foot in the door.

They plan on opening talks with the Dutchman after the EUROs but they are already aware that Ajax want to hold off on agreeing on a fee until next summer.

Transfermarkt values him at €33million but his worth could increase massively over the next year if he continues with his current trajectory.

Then there’s the added difficulty of negotiating with Mino Raiola as the agent is infamous for making it tough for interested parties to agree on low fees.

Neil Jones also says that Neuhaus, Bissouma and McGinn are of interest to Jurgen Klopp as well but there has been little movement on that front recently.

Liverpool are not panicking in a transfer market that is moving quite slowly right now but is expected to burst into life after the EUROs.
