“Here we go expected soon”: Fabrizio Romano shares big transfer update for Liverpool as €35m signing close

Some transfers get to a point where you just presume that it was finalised a while ago, but it appears that talks are still ongoing between Liverpool and RB Leipzig over their French centre back Ibrahima Konate.

The German side are already set to lose Dayot Upamecano in the summer so it will be a major blow to lose both starting centre backs at the same time, but the latest report from Fabrizio Romano suggests his move to Anfield is now extremely close:

If Liverpool trigger that release clause of around €35m then there’s not a lot that Leipzig can do about it, and it’s hard to see the move falling through if personal terms have been agreed alongside the dates of the contract.

It will be interesting to see what impact this has on Liverpool’s defence as he’s highly rated and will expect to get into the team straight away, but they will then have too many options once Matip, van Dijk and Gomez all recover.

It suggests that Nat Phillips may need to look for a loan move which might not be a bad thing if he can be a key starter somewhere else for a season, while January signing Ben Davies may never actually see the field.

    Hi I’m lfc fan from kenya Africa. I guess liverpool has to do a lot on the side of recruitment so as to compete major trophies come next season. We need a quality midfielder and pricisely a precarious talent and i guess bousuma or hossam can help in molding a dynamic midfield of Thiago and the company

    Also not forgetting is the position of Anorld and a quality high goals tally fronts man. There has been a sluggish defending from Alexander i guess the lad is great in dictating the game while free moving forward but when we encounter a fast wings breaking team, that’s where alot of troubles piles on the central defenders because of frequent absence of Alexander perhaps Juggen Klopp could mold him to be one of the centers i presume he might turn out Stive Gerrard type and maybe save the club millions in finding the right replacement for Gini. Firmino for a very long period has been a low scoring striker and when Salah or Mane is not on his best level absolutely the team languishes into despair that shows how important we need to add on a prolific striker to easen the burdens of goal poaching especially bearing in mind that both Mane and Salah are getting older in the game…
