Liverpool finalising Ibrahima Konate signing

Liverpool are reportedly on the brink of finalizing a deal for RB Leipzig’s talented French centre back Ibrahima Konate.

According to reports, the talented center back is wrapping up his move to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp has been dealing with a crisis at the back all season, with injuries to both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

But the Reds are making sure they have the strength-in-depth to cope in the future.

And according to The Athletic, Liverpool have moved to boost their squad as they look to wrap up a deal for Konate.

Konate is currently with France at the Under-21 European Championship – ahead of the summer transfer window.

A move to bring the French youngster to Anfield is believed to be at an advanced stage.

Konate could leave for Merseyside at the soonest opportunity – which would prove invaluable given the Euros is on the horizon this summer.

With Leipzig not in a position of having to sell, any buyer will reportedly have to pay Konate’s release clause of £33million.

Leipzig, who sit second and four points off Bayern Munich in Bundesliga, are understood to be aware of interest in their centre back.

If Liverpool choose to pay his release clause, no talks would be needed.  

The 21-year-old moved from French club Sochaux back in 2017.

He has impressed in the heart of Leipzig’s defence despite injuries limiting his game time.

Konate has featured 89 times for RB Leipzig.

However, he has attracted plenty of interest from a number of European giants.
