Liverpool are reportedly set to complete the signing of Ibrahima Konate this week, according to the latest reports.
The RB Leipzig defender has long been linked with a big move after his impressive form in the Bundesliga, with Fabrizio Romano recently suggesting a deal taking him to Liverpool was close, as peer his column for Benchwarmers.
And now it seems Konate’s move to Anfield could be completed this week for around £30.5million, with personal terms agreed and part of his medical done, according to Football Insider.
The 22-year-old could be a superb signing for Liverpool, who look in urgent need of signings in defence this summer after a challenging season.
Jurgen Klopp did well to get the Reds to a third-place finish in the Premier League after lengthy injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, so a signing like Konate could make all the difference for the club as they look to bounce back next season.
The Frenchman is a hugely promising young player who could end up being a fine long-term addition to Klopp’s squad.
LFC fans will no doubt hope this signing can be completed as quickly as possible.
