Speculation has been rampant that the Dutch midfielder would leave the Bundesliga champions just one year after joining from Ajax.
In his maiden season at Bayern Gravenberch struggled to cement his place in the club's starting XI and made just three league starts as the club secured their eleventh-consecutive Bundesliga title.
Gravenberch agreed personal terms for move to Anfield earlier this week, and appears to have travelled to Merseyside via private jet as the deal between the two clubs is finalised.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Bayern's clash with Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday, Tuchel revealed that he doesn't feel that Gravenberch fits in to his system at the club.
Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed Ryan Gravenberch is set to join Liverpool
Tuchel explained Gravenberch has been eyeing a move away from the Bundesliga champions 'for a while'
'He's a box-to-box midfielder for me, an attacking player.
'The main problem for him is that we don't really have a No.8 in our 4-2-3-1 system. And we're spoilt for choice up front, with really experienced players.
'Ryan is a very nice, hard-working, committed player. He wasn't happy with his situation. He sees the chance in Liverpool to fight for a place at No.8 in a 4-3-3.
'He's wanted to go for a while. An offer came in and we discussed it. It's not done yet, but the outcome is clear.'
