Liverpool will reportedly face competition from Chelsea to sign Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch. Liverpool are looking to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, with the Holland international set to leave the club this summer.
Wijnaldum is out of contract at Anfield at the end of the season and talks have stalled over an extension.
Barcelona are favourites to sign the former Newcastle star on a free transfer.
Gravenberch has emerged as one of Europe’s most promising midfielders this season at Ajax.
And it appears there will be a race for his signature.
“You have to negotiate with the club, it’s so difficult to deal with things. The situation we are in right now, it is not the most important thing.
“The only thing I can say is, is that I’m happy with the team etc, my family is happy but besides that no news.
“[It would be] Really difficult because if that happens you leave a team you really love, where you feel really comfortable. It always depends on the situation, I would be devastated [to leave].”
