Liverpool are edging closer to a deal for RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.
The 21-year-old has a release clause of roughly £30 million in his contract, and the two clubs are in advanced talks over the payment structure.
The Reds have already agreed personal terms with the player, and he will sign a five year contract if the move is concluded.
"It is really, really close. it is just a matter of time," said respected transfer expert Fabrizio Romano on talkSPORT on Wednesday.
"The agreement with the player is done. They want to sign the player. It is just a case of the clubs negotiating.
"The player wants to go. It is a five-year contract. In some weeks, it will be complete."
