Many Liverpool fans want to sign Ibrahima Konate following a recent report from AS on the RB Leipzig central defender.
As per the news outlet, he has a release clause of €45m (£38.5m), but the Bundesliga club may be willing to negotiate a transfer sum closer to around €25-30m (£21.4-25.6m), a fee that one fan called a ‘bargain‘.
Should Liverpool sign Konate?
The Anfield faithful have been strongly linked with a move for Konate in the summer transfer window, as they hope to bring in another centre-back to potentially partner Virgil Van Dijk in the longer term or sufficiently cover for him if the Netherlands international sustains another bad injury in the future.
The 21-year-old still has a lot of potential at his age having played for one of Europe’s top clubs, and several supporters of the Merseyside club have been drooling at the possibility of him signing for them.
Liverpool fan reaction to Konate news
These Reds expressed their desire to sign Konate on Twitter after reading the latest report, with one Kopite even going as far as to call the Frenchman a ‘bargain’:
“Mr Edwards, make him sign da ting”
“If this is true, we need to be all over it”
