RB Leipzig inform Arsenal of staggering demands for Ibrahima Konate

Arsenal have revived their interest in RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.

The Gunners were interested in Konate's teammate, Dayot Upamecano.

But they will instead focus on the 21-year-old stopper Konate, according to TodoFichajes.

Leipzig are not willing to negotiate over Konate until the end of the season.

The German club will demand at least €60m for the youngster.

The demand is higher than Upamecano's release clause of £36.5m.
