We all know that Liverpool are paying close attention to Dayot Upamecano, but we found out yesterday that Ibrahima Konate, his central defensive partner at Rb Leipzig, is also a target.
This was tweeted by Christian Falk, the Bild honcho who correctly called our Thiago move in the summer.
Konate is 21-years-old and has two and a half years left on his deal, so would theoretically be very expensive.
At 6ft.4′, he’s a giant of a defender and someone who’d immediately bolster our options in our currently most beleaguered position.

Konmate is incredible in the air, but he’s not bad on the ball, either.
