Despite being admired by several top clubs, Bayern Munich is the side that looks most poised to sign Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch.
That’s according to a recent report from leading football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who has claimed the Bavarians have launched an opening offer of £12.6m (€15m) for the highly-rated midfielder.

Since climbing his way through the club’s prestigious youth ranks, the Dutch midfielder has gone on to feature in 98 senior matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to 24 goals along the way.
