Ryan Gravenberch supplied recommendation with Arsenal eager on deal
Ryan Gravenberch has been urged by his father to spend at least one more season at Ajax as Arsenal are reportedly interested.
The talented teenager has seen his stocks skyrocket across Europe after seeing a rapid rise – one that made him the Eredivisie title winner and senior Dutch international.
Arsenal have one of the best academies in world football and are constantly on the lookout for the best young talent in the game. According to the latest media reports, they were shown very impressed by the quality of the young man.
Gravenberch’s father, Ryan Snr, told Ajax Showtime amid transfer rumors surrounding his son: “He has to take this final step at Ajax. He just has to and he hasn’t done that yet.
“I want him to be fully mature at Ajax. As far as I’m concerned, he’ll just stay with Ajax.
“He’s only played a full season now and that was pretty good of course, but he has to play better next season.
“Then he really has to be one of the key players despite his age, especially if he plays in the European Championship [with the Netherlands].
“He won’t get away with it in the locker room next season if he plays badly several games in a row.
“I really think he should take a step at Ajax first. He has to move up the hierarchy and do more for himself in the management team.
“I’m not going to press him, that doesn’t make sense to Ryan. But he also notices that. He also thinks it’s best to stay with Ajax. “
The big clubs will be very difficult for the boy to turn down, but at the moment he doesn’t have to go and should stay seated
