Konate, 21, joined RB Leipzig in 2017 after making the switch from French side FC Sochaux.

Since his arrival in Germany’s top-flight, Konate has featured in 89 matches, in all competitions.

During what has been a hugely successful four-years with Julian Nagelsmann’s side, Konate, with the help of centre-back partner Dayot Upamecano, has grown to become one of Europe’s most highly-rated defenders.

The young Frenchman’s continued and impressive form has seen him contribute to his side’s nervy title challenge this season.

Although the 21-year-old has enjoyed a relatively successful time in the Bundesliga, Konate has recently seen his name linked with a stunning switch to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

According to a report on Monday from The Athletic, the defender is in ‘advanced’ talks with the Premier League champions over a possible summer switch.

Following the exciting news, we have taken a look at how Klopp could line the side up next season, should they prove successful in their pursuit.
