RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konaté is on the verge of a move to Liverpool, according to Fabrizio Romano.

As per the reputable Italian journalist, the centre-back has agreed personal terms on a five year-deal with the Premier League giants, who are set to activate his release clause, reported to be around €35 million, in the next days.

Konaté, who is still under contract with RB Leipzig until 2023, has been linked with Liverpool for a while.

He commented on the speculation earlier this month, telling Bild:

"There are a lot of rumors in football, and many believe them immediately. But neither me nor my representatives have received a call from Liverpool.

"In addition, I still have big goals with RB Leipzig. These include doing as well as possible in the Bundesliga, to reach the cup final and the European Under-21 Championship with France.

"I have a contract until 2023, and contracts are there to be fulfilled."

The 21-year-old Frenchman has made 18 appearances for 'Die Roten Bullen' this season, scoring once.
