Ajax have named their price for prodigious midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, who is the subject of interest from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

A product of Ajax's famed academy, Gravenberch has emerged as a key player for the Amsterdam side at just 19 years old and is already a full Netherlands international.

His contract at the Johan Cruyff Arena is due to expire in 2023, which has inevitably drawn the attention of some of Europe's big hitters as they seek a cut-price deal for a huge talent.

90min reported earlier in April that Bayern Munich were closing in on Gravenberch's signature having all but agreed personal terms with the player.

However, the two parties have yet to come to an agreement over a transfer fee, according to De Telegraaf, leading to the possibility that the midfielder could see out his current contract before sealing a free transfer to Bayern or elsewhere next summer.

Ajax are holding out for €30m for their prized asset, while Die Roten have so far only offered €23m including bonuses and they are not showing a willingness to increase that figure.

Listen now to 90min's Talking Transfers podcast, where Scott Saunders, Graeme Bailey & special guests bring you the latest on the biggest deals & rumours. This week they discussed Christian Eriksen's future with Sean Walsh, as well as providing updates on Man Utd's pursuit of Erling Haaland & Erik ten Hag.

The player himself is said to have his heart set on a move to the Allianz Arena and feels that €23m is 'an excellent price' considering he is out of contract in 12 months' time.

Should Ajax and Bayern remain at loggerheads, then there is a 'good chance' Gravenberch will stay with De Godenzonen this summer and walk away for nothing next year.
