Liverpool ‘asks’ about second World Cup winner as Jürgen Klopp can copy Bayern Munich plan

One of Liverpool’s reported midfield targets for the summer transfer window is Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch.

According to Sky Sports, the Reds have already been in touch with the player’s camp to make their ‘pitch’ over a potential move to Anfield and are now hoping to strike an agreement with the Bundesliga giants.

But now it seems yet another Bayern Munich player may be on their radar, this time one who operates in defense.

German publication Kicker reports (via Sport Witness) that Liverpool is one of a number teams to have ‘asked about’ Benjamin Pavard.

Pavard’s contract expires in 2024 and while Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić has said the club are in talks with his camp and ‘would love’ to keep him (via BeSoccer), the player has long been considering his future.

The 27-year-old appeals to Liverpool for a couple of reasons. Anfield recruitment staff consider him ‘one of the most consistent players’ in what’s been a difficult season for Bayern, who will be dethroned as champion for the first time since 2012 if Borussia Dortmund beats Mainz on Saturday.
