Back in January, seemingly reliable reports emerged suggesting RB Leipzig’s 21-year-old French international centre half Ibrahima Konaté was going to be Liverpool’s top defensive transfer target in the summer.

Then this week, seemingly reliable reports claimed the Reds were willing to trigger his €40M release clause and a deal was close—which, if Liverpool intend to trigger his release clause, would mean personal terms.

Today, France’s RMC, as relayed by GFFN, say the player has undergone at least a partial Liverpool medical in Paris this week while on international duty, though they note that a deal still isn’t 100% certain.
