TRANSFER - Report: Barcelona looking to sign Gravenberch from Ajax.
According to rumors from Fichajes, Barcelona is pursuing Ajax's Ryan Gravenberch as a dream signing.
This season, the young Dutch star has been the focal point of not just Eric ten Hag's Ajax club, but also the Dutch national team. After a successful domestic season in which he even participated in the European Championship, the teenager earned his first call-up for Louis van Gaal's side.
Gravenberch has shown to be a solid midfield option in a variety of situations, with strong distribution and defense awareness. Needless to say, the teenager's physique is another element that raises his market worth.
The sole stumbling block in Barcelona's pursuit of the excellent midfielder is the current economic circumstances. The Catalans are strapped for cash, and the Dutchman will undoubtedly cost them a little fortune.
Gravenberch's contract in Amsterdam expires in 2023. This may be excellent news for the board, as Ajax will be under more pressure to sell him in order to avoid losing him for free.
