Liverpool have completed the aquisition of Leipzig Centre back Ibrahima Konate, who will join the club at the end of the present campaign on a 5 year deal.
Ibrahima Konaté to Liverpool, here we go soon! The deal is set to be completed, personal terms agreed on a five-years contract.
Liverpool will pay the release clause to RB Leipzig in the next days [around €35m] in order to finalize the signing of Konaté. 🔴 #LFC
Konate has received many proposals in the last few months but his priority has always been Liverpool. Liverpool will pay the release clause in the next few days. #awlfc [@FabrizioRomano]
Konate is an exceptional signing by Liverpool if he can stay fit. He still has a lot of areas to improve on, but he’s only 21 with an extremely high ceiling. Liverpool are so good at doing smart business, plus they should go for a very creative Midfielder that will give them an extra attacking option through the middle, they need/lack such creative player, which made them very predictable this season.
Konate and Virgil Can Dijk pairing at the back would be solid, but the 21 year old need to shake off his injury woes. It now appears that Ozan Kabak will be returning to Schalke04, after failing to impress on his season short loan move to the club.
Great signing by Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp!!
