Liverpool agree five-year deal with RB Leipzig's Ibrahima Konate

Liverpool are reportedly close to agreeing a five-year deal with RB Leipzig center-back Ibrahima Konate.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield in recent weeks, but he recently stated that he had not been approached by the Reds about a potential transfer.

However, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Konate has reached personal terms with Liverpool and is expected to sign a five-year contract with Jurgen Klopp's side.

According to Romano, Liverpool will activate the €35 million (£30.5 million) release clause in Konate's Leipzig contract in the coming days, but no word on what this means for Ozan Kabak's future at the club.

Konate appears to be following compatriot Dayot Upamecano out of Leipzig, but the Bundesliga club has agreed to sign Strasbourg's Mohamed Simakan for the 2021-22 season.

Injuries have hindered Konate's season, and he has only made six Bundesliga starts this season, despite scoring four goals in 92 appearances for Leipzig since joining from Sochaux in 2017.
