Medical underway as Liverpool finalizes a new 5-year contract signing.

Medical underway as Liverpool finalizes a new 5-year contract signing.

Liverpool are set to finish the signing of RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate this week, according to the Football Insider.

The Merseyside giants have been heavily connected over the last two months with the French center-back, 21, who has a £30.5m release clause in his deal with the Bundesliga outfit.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Liverpool have triggered the release clause and have held lengthy discussions with Leipzig over the structure of payments.

Konate has now agreed on personal terms with Liverpool on a five-year deal and finished the first part of a medical.

More medical tests are set to be performed but the contract is now in its final stages and all parties understand it should be signed off by the end of the week.

The France Under-21 international has been targeted to strengthen a Liverpool backline that has been seriously impaired over the last six months by severe injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip.

The Reds finished the season firmly to secure third place and a spot in next season’s Champions League.

But they were disturbed for months at the back, with midfield duo Fabinho and Jordan Henderson constantly filling in before Jurgen Klopp resolved on the youthful trio of Nat Phillips, Rhys Williams, and loanee Ozan Kabak.

Konate will bring cover and competition at the commencement of next season, with no guarantees Van Dijk, Gomez, and Matip will be fit to return.

Nevertheless, the Frenchman has a chequered injury tale of his own and has had poor unavailability over the last two terms.

The defender has made just eight Bundesliga starts among 21 appearances this summer.
