      Liverpool agree deal to sign Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig

      James Carroll@James_Carroll84

      Liverpool Football Club have reached an agreement for the transfer of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.

      The 22-year-old defender has agreed a long-term contract with the Reds from July 1, subject to international clearance and a successful work permit application process, after finalising terms and passing a medical.

      Konate told Liverpoolfc.com: “I’m really happy to be joining such a massive club like Liverpool.

      “It’s a really exciting moment for me and my family and I am really looking forward to meeting my new teammates, the staff and getting started on this new chapter.

      “Right now, my focus is on the U21 European Championships with France, but after this competition I know I will be joining one of the best teams in the world and that gives me a great feeling.

      “I have worked very hard for many years to get to this point, but I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at RB Leipzig and all the people I worked with there – the coaches, my teammates, the staff and especially the fans.

      “Your support helped me grow up during my time there and become not only a better player, but a better man and I will always be grateful for it.”

      Jürgen Klopp reaction: Ibrahima Konate will add quality and potential to our squad

      Konate will move to Anfield after four seasons in the Bundesliga with Leipzig, where he made 95 appearances and scored four goals. He also clocked up eight runouts in the Champions League with the German club.

      Prior to switching to Die Roten Bullen, the centre-back made his breakthrough into senior football at Sochaux after graduating through their academy.

      Konate is currently with France’s U21 squad for the UEFA European Championships. To date, he has 12 caps for his country at that level.

      His squad number at Liverpool will be confirmed in due course.

      I think he will come in to be an improvement on our back ups. I think a lot of people think he's going to come in and be Virgils partner. Let's not forget how good Gomez has been at times for us.

      Although, welcome to the club big man! Hope you can be a hit here :)

      Fantastic news. This kid looks the BIZ...NESS!

      So who is this Fabrizio Romano dude? he is the one that was calling this transfer for a while and i believe he broke Gini to Barcelona as well.

      Gomez only 24 as well.

      I tend to forget how young he is, because he's been with us for ages.

      Watching clips of him I have to say he looks very, very good. Time will tell, just hope he stays healthy. Do we have any CBs barring Phillips and Williams that haven't had a major injury in recent years?

      Let's get all our business done early and this efficiently.

      Hopefully never have to see Fab at CB again!!

      Windows just opened I’m sure we will recoup the 40m in outgoings.

      Could age like milk this.

      If he recovers well, they will be our future CBs. Only one of them will play with VVD.

      For what it's worth: they laugh at us in RB forums because they say he's much more fragile than Naby was. I hope our medical department has done a proper job. We do not need another man of glass, especially not as a CB. It kind of blew my optimism but still he's a hell of a player with much upside. One of those signings that make our 11 better, not just our bench. He's Nat Phillips - just faster and more skilled.

      I can't think of many things I give less of a sh*t about than what people on RB forums think of our team and our decisions. But hey, if you spend a lot of time there, maybe think about making it permanent?

      I can't wait to see him and Van Dijk at the back next season, he's exactly what we needed to sign.

      This is my first post ever on any forum and i'm not sure if i am allowed to insert external links or even promote anything so I am sorry if this is a bit out of place but i just started a small Liverpool blog the other day. I wrote a small piece about Konate with some context about RB Leipzig and I am looking for any feedback / advice on how to make it better.
