Liverpool are in talks with Bayern Munich over a move for Dutch midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who is keen on the transfer.
With just over 24 hours left to go in the transfer window Liverpool need to act fast, and although an agreement is still some way off from being sealed, the Reds are optimistic they can do a deal before the deadline passes.
An official bid is expected to be lodged for the 21-year-old in the coming hours, with Jurgen Klopp desperate to reinforce the centre of the park after losing out on both Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia this month.
Manchester United are monitoring the situation but are believed to be focused on a deal for Fiorentina's Sofyan Amrabat, leaving Liverpool in pole position for Gravenberch's signature.

It's just as well as according to The Athletic, Gravenberch wants to move to Anfield and is likely to choose Liverpool even if United end up striking a deal with Bayern too.
His departure, however, will only be sanctioned if the Bundesliga giants source a replacement, with the likes of Scott McTominay, Eric Dier and Conor Gallagher all being linked with a move to the Allianz Arena.
Gravenberch made 33 appearances for Bayern in the league last season, but just three of those were starts and it's understood Thomas Tuchel doesn't consider him part of his long-term plans at the club.
How would you rate Liverpool's summer business if they seal a deal for Gravenberch? Let us know in the comments section below.
He joined Bayern from Ajax for around £15million last year, having emerged from the Eredivisie giants' famed academy a few years prior.
Should his move to Liverpool go through Gravenberch will join Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo as the club's fourth midfield signing of the summer.
