Liverpool are said to be intensifying their efforts to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, according to the latest reports.

Having completed the signing of Wataru Endo on Friday, the Reds have now reportedly turned their attention to Gravenberch, as they look to round off a summer of business dedicated to rebuilding Jurgen Klopp's midfield ranks.

Liverpool have long been admirers of the Dutch international. However, Bayern's previous stubbornness over a potential sale led to interest being cooled back in June.

Now, though, Bild are reporting that Bayern could be tempted into allowing the 21-year-old to leave, should Liverpool submit an offer of €30m (£25.7m) for the player.

Gravenberch is said to be unhappy with his current role in Thomas Tuchel's squad, with the former Chelsea boss only seeing the Dutchman as a backup player at this moment in time.

For his part, Gravenberch appears to be open to a move away from Bavaria, with Fabrizio Romano claiming earlier in the summer that a switch to Liverpool did pique the midfielder's interest.

Believing they can offer the midfielder the game time he desires, Liverpool now look to be once again ramping up their pursuits of Gravenberch, with tz reporting that head of recruitment Dave Fallows and chief scout Barry Hunter recently travelled to Germany to obtain detailed information regarding the player.

This is backed up by the Daily Mail in a report that claims the Reds have held 'more productive talks' with Bayern, regarding Gravenberch

After the failed moves for Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia left the club's recruitment chiefs with egg on their face, Liverpool will be desperate to land at least one more their targets before the transfer deadline on September 1.

In addition to Gravenberch, the Mail's piece adds talks have also taken place with Crystal Palace for Cheick Doucoure.
