Manchester City could target Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch if they lose out to Real Madrid for Jude Bellingham, according to reports in England.
The Bayern star only moved to the Bundesliga champions last summer, but he has made just two league starts, and he is said to be keen on leaving the Allianz Arena to get more first-team football.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United have also been mentioned as potential suitors for Gravenberch, who is currently earning £100,000 a week after tax with Bayern.
The Dutchman isn’t likely to cost anywhere near as much as Bellingham, with Bayern expecting to recoup the £16.3m they paid Ajax for the player back in July last year.
Competition from other Premier League teams could push up Gravenberch’s price slightly but City would be in a good position to offer the player want he wants in terms of more minutes on the pitch.
The Citizens could lose a number of midfielders at the end of the season. Kalvin Phillips and Bernardo Silva have both been tipped to leave the Etihad, while captain Ilkay Gundogan may depart on a free transfer when his contract expires next month.
