Liverpool are near finishing a €40m arrangement to sign RB Leipzig centre-back Ibrahima Konate once the mid year transfer window opens.
Jurgen Klopp has been quick to support his defensive positions after long haul wounds to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip left him compelled to hack and change his squad just to try and stay afloat.
Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak were both gotten in January, however the craving to track down another centre-back remained.

According to The Athletic’s David Ornstein, they’ve found one, and his name is Konate.
An agreement to sign the 21-year-old is not yet finalised, but talks with Konate are understood to be at an advanced stage and sources in Germany claim that Liverpool have made ‘significant progress’ in their attempts to sign him.
