Arsenal and Man Utd battle for Ryan Gravenberch

Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping close tabs on Bayern Munich’s rising star Ryan Gravenberch, as per 90min

The young midfielder rose through the youth ranks at Ajax and made his senior debut at 16. Since moving to Bayern Munich from Ajax last summer, the 20-year-old has struggled to make an impact, managing just three starts across all competitions. 

The Dutchman’s future at Bayern is dangling on a thread, and the newly appointed boss, Thomas Tuchel, has not been favorable to his progression either. 

Meanwhile, both Arsenal and Man Utd are reportedly considering the possibility of signing the Netherlands international, who has also been linked with a move to the latter during the past two transfer windows. 

Ryan Gravenberch – Bayern exit likely? 

Gravenberch could be considering a departure from Bayern to enhance his international prospects, having been excluded from the Netherlands’ World Cup squad due to his limited playing time this season.

The midfielder has found it challenging to secure a spot in the starting lineup due to the wealth of midfield talent available at the German club.

In an interview with Ajax Showtime last week Gravenberch admitted, “I had hoped and expected to be playing more at Bayern but until now it has not gone as expected…..For me this is a pity, but I know how to deal with it”.

Sky Germany reporter Plettenberg suggested (10 April) that Arsenal could offer Gravenberch more opportunities to play, but the move would require Tuchel’s approval.

The Dutchman’s potential has not gone unnoticed by Erik Ten Hag who has worked with him previously at Ajax and could benefit from his technical ability and physical presence.

It remains to be seen how this situation will unfold in the coming months.
