A number of Liverpool supporters have been reacting to claims that the Reds are on the verge of agreeing a deal to sign Ibrahima Konate.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to bring in at least one new centre-back this summer, having been dealt such a tough hand in that position this season. The German has to make do without Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez for the majority of the campaign, with Joel Matip also joining them on the sidelines.
It meant Liverpool have understandably looked more shaky in defence at times, with midfielder Fabinho and Jordan Henderson having to fill in there, as well as Ozan Kabak and Nathaniel Phillips forging an unlikely pairing.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Liverpool have agreed a five-year deal for Konate, costing the Reds approximately £35m.
The Frenchman has earned glowing admiration with his performances for RB Leipzig, and at 21, he is viewed as a centre-back with massive long-term potential.
Liverpool fans delighted at Konate update
These Liverpool fans reacted positively to the news on Twitter after a difficult week which saw a lot of antipathy towards the club’s owners over the European Super League fiasco.
“Good start from the owners but I still expect to see Mbappe or Haaland, I’ll be real“
“Good news “
“Not a bad start for an apology, John Henry“
“Could be a great signing this“
