Liverpool eyeing RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate

Liverpool are eyeing RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.

Konate, 19, has been a mainstay in the Bundesliga side this season, making 43 appearances in all competitions.

The France U21 international centre-half cost Leipzig just cost £270k from Sochaux back in 2017, but he is now worth considerably more.

He is contracted to the club until the end of the 2023 season but would be a good acquisition for Jurgen Klopp, says the Daily Star.

The Reds boss is looking to bring in reinforcements to deepen his squad this summer as they look to challenge Manchester City again next season.
