Ryan Gravenberch has named Arsenal defender Jurrien Timber as a player he would like as a Liverpool teammate.
After arriving from Ajax in the summer, Timber's early displays for the Gunners were positive but his debut was cut short as he suffered a knee injury on the opening day. The 22-year-old was forced off after 50 minutes against Nottingham Forest as he went down innocuously, unchallenged, as he looked to play a pass.
Gravenberch was a teammate of the Arsenal defenders throughout the ranks at club level, with Ajax, and international level with Holland. The Liverpool midfielder left his national teammate in 2022 as he swapped Amsterdam for Bavaria.

It looks unlikely that the pair will meet when Arsenal travel to Anfield on the eve of Christmas, due to Timber's injury, before the reverse fixture in early February.
Gravenberch's deadline day move to Merseyside saw him become the latest Dutch export to arrive at Anfield. The Holland under-21 international will have familiar faces in the dressing room in the form of Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk and former PSV striker Cody Gakpo.
Both Gakpo and Gravenberch combined, to give the Liverpool midfielder his second assist for the club, when he teed up Gakpo for the equaliser in their Carabao Cup third round win over Leicester City.
The newest Liverpool recruit took part in a Reddit question-and-answer session, in association with Sky Sports, and was probed over which of his national teammates he would like to join him within Jurgen Klopp's side.
"I would maybe go for a good friend of mine, Jurrien Timber," said Gravenberch.
