English Premier League champions Liverpool are believed to have edged closer to announcing Ibrahima Konate.
According to Anfield Central, the 21-year-old RB Leipzig's French central defender has accepted the Reds’ £85 000 salary offer.
“Liverpool have reached an agreement with Ibrahima Konate over personal terms while sporting director Michael Edwards continues to negotiate with RB Leipzig over the payment structure of his fee,” Anfield Central reported.
“This is according to the same source that told us that Liverpool reached a verbal agreement with the defender on Friday last week,” the report added.
Up next for the Reds is a league visit of Aston Villa to Anfield this weekend.
