It seems that Liverpool is on the verge of announcing a new defensive deal soon, to repair the holes caused by injuries in its ranks since the beginning of the current season.
German coach Juergen Klopp has suffered this season from frequent absences in the defensive line, with the duo Virgil van Dyck and Joe Gomez suffering injuries that have kept them out of action for a long time.
According to “Sky Sport Germany”, according to the famous journalist Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool is about to contract Ibrahima Konate, a defender from Leipzig.
He reported that the young French defender would sign for the Reds for a period of 5 years in the coming days.
Liverpool does not plan to negotiate with Leipzig on the inclusion of the 21-year-old player, as it intends to pay the penalty clause of his contract of 35 million euros.
