What a summer this promises to be. We have the Euros to watch, the Reds rebuilding and lockdown restrictions easing. We already have reason to be excited with The Athletic reporting that Liverpool are close to signing Ibrahima Konate. Some Kopites have flooded a compilation of the defender and they’re buzzing about the move.
Centre back needed
There’s no prizes for guessing that the Reds were going to sign a centre half.
Liverpool have had their back line devastated by injuries this term and a new arrival was inevitable.
Even though we brought in a couple of defenders in the winter window there has been an expectation that the final roster for next season would be settled in the summer.

One of our long term targets, Ozan Kabak, arrived in February.
It looks as though another could be on his way.
The Athletic have reported that Liverpool are closing in on Ibrahima Konate.
The 21-year-old Frenchman is regarded as one of the brightest defensive prospects in the game.
The report claims that the Reds will activate his £34m release clause to avoid a protracted negotiation period with RB Leipzig.
This signing will surely trigger the departure of a defender or two but given our injury history this season that is no disaster.
Fans have been getting excited about the move, flooding a compilation of the defender’s finest moments.
