Ajax starlet Ryan Gravenberch has landed in Germany to complete his move to Bayern Munich.

The talented 20-year-old has long been on Bayern's radar, with the German giants planning a double raid on Ajax to bring him in alongside right-back Noussair Mazraoui, whose transfer has already been confirmed.

A deal was agreed last month and now Gravenberch has confirmed to Bild that he is looking forward to making the move to the Allianz Arena.

"Bayern is a big club," he said after landing in Munich. "I think you have to win big titles here. And that's also what I expect.

"I'm happy to be here in Munich now."

Gravenberch has signed a five-year contract, committing himself to the current Bundesliga champions until 2027.

Bayern are understood to have parted with around €18m up front, with a further €5m in variables, and Ajax have also retained a share of any future sale.

He is set to become Bayern's second signing of the summer, after Mazraoui, and the club hopes to follow them up with a deal to sign Liverpool's Sadio Mane, for whom they remain locked in talks.
