Liverpool transfer target is 'better than Jude Bellingham in EVERY way', claims Van der Vaart | The Sun

LIVERPOOL have been advised to sign Bayern Munich outcast Ryan Gravenberch because he is better than Borussia Dortmund superstar Jude Bellingham "in every way".

That is according to Rafael van der Vaart, who insists Gravenberch outclasses Bellingham even though the England international has been linked with all of Europe's top hitters.

The midfielder was targeted by the Reds but manager Jurgen Klopp decided to pull the plug after Dortmund kept raising his staggering release clause, which reached a whopping £130million.

The Merseysiders have since been linked with Gravenberch, who continues to struggle for minutes at Bayern under Thomas Tuchel just like he did during Julian Nagelsmann's tenure.

However, Van der Vaart, who is known for his strong opinions in the Netherlands, is adamant that his fellow Dutchman would be a much smarter deal than Bellingham for Liverpool.

The ex-Tottenham star believes the 20-year-old would pay dividends in the Premier League because he is more physical than the Dortmund star.

Van der Vaart said: “Do you know what the most important thing is when you go to a new club? The first two weeks.

“You have to show in every training, every practice game that you are a rightful purchase.

"For Gravenberch, it would actually be good to rent him out to Ajax again.

“Can you remember any player who sat on the bench at Bayern in the 1990s?

“What I think the big difference is: Bellingham is at a club a step lower and always plays.
