According to the English sports website “The Athletic”, central defender Ibrahima Konaté (21) is mentally already on the way to Liverpool.

In addition to the departure of Dayot Upamecano (22), the second French defender would also leave the Red Bulls.

Josko Gvardiol (19) and Mohamed Simakan (20) will join the club this summer. Since Konaté would cost about 40 million euros for the Reds, the Leipzigers would be sure of a decent profit with the transfer.

However, the Bulls also know what they have in Konaté, even if he only made nine Bundesliga appearances this season due to several injuries.

“Stats Perform News” has therefore called RB sports director Markus Krösche (40) aside and asked how things are going to stay with Konaté in Leipzig.

His words can certainly give the fans courage: “He’s an extremely important player who has a lot of potential and we want to help him develop even further. We play internationally, we have a very, very good team, that’s why I don’t see any reason that he would want to leave us. “

Krösche therefore believes that “is not an issue” for “Ibu” Liverpool. The Frenchman still has a long-term contract in Leipzig, which he would certainly like to fulfill.

Who actually takes off from Leipzig and is looking for a new challenge will only show up in the next few weeks. So far, only the departure of Dayot Upamecano is really certain.
