Liverpool are in advanced talks with RB Leipzig over a deal for centre-back Ibrahima Konate, according to a report.
Despite those additions, though, Jurgen Klopp is still believed to be looking to bring in another defender ahead of next season.
Konate, who can also fill in at right-back or right wing-back, is rumoured to be at the top of Klopp's wishlist.
The Athletic claims that Liverpool chiefs have been working on a deal behind the scenes and are close to agreeing a €40m (£34.1m) fee with Leipzig.
Konate's possible exit would leave the Bundesliga side with a massive void to fill, as central-defensive partner Dayot Upamecano is joining Bayern Munich in July.
Liverpool's domestic rivals Chelsea were also believed to be keen on striking a deal for the France Under-21s international.
