Liverpool are "really, really close" to signing RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate on a five-year contract, according to Fabrizio Romano.

RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate is set to join Liverpool on a five-year contract this summer, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Reds secured the signatures of Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak on loan in January amid their injury crisis, but Jurgen Klopp is hoping to bolster his backline further ahead of the new season.

Liverpool have long been linked with a swoop for France Under-21 international Konate, and Romano has claimed that a deal is "really, really close" to being completed.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Romano said: "It is really, really close. It is just a matter of time. The agreement with the player is done.

"They want to sign the player. It is just a case of the clubs negotiating. The player wants to go. It is a five-year contract. In some weeks, it will be complete."

Konate has only made seven Bundesliga starts for Leipzig during an injury-hit campaign, and he has totalled four goals in 94 appearances for Julian Nagelsmann's side across all competitions.
