Barcelona are reportedly prepared to fight for Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch's signature.
During the 2020-21 season, the 18-year-old has been in excellent form for his Dutch side, scoring five goals and assisting six times in 44 appearances across all competitions.
A number of clubs, including Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United, are said to be interested in signing the Netherlands international, who has a deal with the Dutch national team until June 2023.
According to Mundo Deportivo, however, Barca is still a strong contender for the teenager, who may be on the move during the summer transfer window.

According to the paper, the Catalan giants attempted to sign Gravenberch when he was 15, but Ajax persuaded him to sign a professional contract.
Barcelona are rumored to be interested in improving their midfield options ahead of the 2021-22 season, but speculation about a bid for Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum has died down in recent weeks.
