Ibrahima Konate of RB Leipzig is still being pursued by Liverpool.
Liverpool’s hopes of defending the Premier League title were badly harmed this season after losing three centre-backs to injury.
The Reds are determined not to let that happen again, and Konate, 23, has been named as their primary target.
Last week, respected journalist Fabrizio Romano broke the news that a deal was in the works,
and he has moved to reaffirm his statements.Konate is said to have a £30.5 million release clause.
