Liverpool handed new obstacle by RB Leipzig in Konate negotiations

RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate's expected move to Liverpool has hit an obstacle.

Konate appeared all set to join Liverpool at the end of the season, but negotiations have now hit a snag.

The Times says the German outfit have moved the goalposts on the transfer and now want the entire fee paid as one lump sum.

Liverpool have made their desire for Konate clear, and see him as the ideal candidate to put pressure on Joe Gomez as the partner for the currently crocked Virgil Van Dijk.

But the onus is now on owners FSG to stump up the required up fee in one lump sum.
