RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate has began a home search in Liverpool earlier than transferring to Anfield, in keeping with a report.
The France Under-21 international has had hyperlinks with Jurgen Klopp’s side for some time now. Athletic journalist David Ornstein initially broke the information of Liverpool’s interest, claiming that the Reds and Leipzig have been in superior negotiations. Since then, although, discuss of the switch has largely centered on the cost of its launch clause.
Some stories recommend that it’ll cost round £ 35million. Nonetheless, additional hypothesis claims that Liverpool must pay as much as £ 40million.

In response to Anfield Central, although, the center-back is making ready to move to Merseyside.
He has began home searching within the space, figuring out that transferring to Liverpool on the finish line is possible.
In actual fact, the report says the Reds have accomplished ‘virtually each step of the method’ when signing the player.
Paying the discharge clause and arranging and passing a medical examination stay the one main duties, other than ‘minor paperwork’.
The 2 sides have agreed private phrases and journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed (through The Guardian) that the deal will cost £ 30.5million.
