Your Thursday LFC news round up includes links to Ryan Gravenberch, Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s omission from the England squad and the news that Stefan Bajcetic is out for the season.
Enrique claims Gravenberch to Liverpool is “done”
In an intriguing turn of events, former Liverpool left-back Jose Enrique has claimed that Bayern Munich midfielder Ryan Gravenberch has already agreed a deal to join the Reds.
Enrique has told his YouTube followers that he and Gravenberch have the same agent and that “the player is ours”.
