Man City have become surprise contenders for the signature of Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch.
The 20-year-old midfielder, who finally made his first Bundesliga start for the Bavarians at the weekend, has been heavily linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena and according to the Daily Mirror’s Tom Hopkinson, Man City will rival Premier League giants Liverpool for the Dutchman as they look to bolster a midfield which may lose Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva this summer.

The former Ajax graduate was believed to be set for a move to Liverpool this summer who themselves will need a summer rebuild in midfield when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita leave the club at the end of the season- and with James Milner looking set to join Brighton and Hove Albion on 1 July when his contract comes to an end.
Gravenberch is currently on wages of $126,000-a-week after tax in Germany and with four years left to run on his current deal in Munich, the midfielder is likely to cost close to double the $20m figure it cost the Bavarians last summer.
