Liverpool transfer targets Ryan Gravenberch, Khephren Thuram and Micky Van de Ven

Liverpool are currently pursuing deals for Ryan Gravenberch, Khephren Thuram and Micky Van de Ven, according to reports, with the trio all having the ‘same agents’.

The Reds have already completed a bargain deal to bring in Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister for around £35m with Jurgen Klopp now moving on to other targets.

Klopp is still hoping to bring in at least one or two more midfielders in the summer transfer window and he wants a new left-sided centre-back to add to his squad.

And now Football Insider claim that they currently have ‘active interest’ in Bayern Munich’s Gravenberch, Nice’s Thuram and Wolfsburg’s Van de Ven with all three players ‘represented by the same agents’.

It is understood that it will emerge as ‘a key relationship’ for Liverpool in this transfer window with the trio towards the top of their shortlists.

Football Insider adds: ‘A deal for Thuram is currently more likely than Gravenberch, a deal for whom is on the backburner while Bayern assess where he fits into their plans.’

Thurman, who earned his first cap for France earlier this year, is ‘believed to be keen on the move and Liverpool are expecting that they will get the deal done’.

Gravenberch is valued at around €25m after being on the outskirts of Bayern’s side this season, while Nice are asking for around €40m for Thurman and Wolfsburg want €30m for Van de Ven.

That means Liverpool could land all three players for €95m (£81m) with Van de Ven flirting with a potential move to Anfield earlier this month.

Speaking about speculation linking him to the Merseysiders, Van de Ven told Voetbal International: “Of course, there are a lot of people who draw lines. It’s true that the director [Schmadtke] went there and I know that Liverpool followed me before. But at the moment I don’t know anything.

“Do I think Liverpool is a nice club? Naturally!”

Van De Ven added: “If a nice club comes along that has a clear plan with me, then I could consider taking a step.

“Then you are open to that in that sense. There is a chance that after this summer I will just play in the Bundesliga, but there is also a chance that I will make a transfer. We will see. Let’s finish this season first.”
