Liverpool have already secured their first summer signing. The Reds swooped early for reinforcements at the back. Finally we’ve seen him in a red shirt. Some Liverpool fans have reacted to a clip of Ibrahima Konate with Jürgen Klopp.
Why Liverpool moved fast
The Reds had a dire time last season.
Every singly senior centre back was ruled out with a season ending injury.
As a result we saw a number of players called up from the reserves and others dragged out of positions.
Two winter window moves were made to plug the gaps but even these auxiliary options were injured for a spell.
It became apparent that the Reds needed decisive investment in the back line.
Liverpool sign Ibrahima Konate
As soon as the season finished the Reds got to work.
Not long after the final game of the disastrous campaign Liverpool secured the signing of Ibrahima Konate.
The towering 22-year-old centre back arrived from RB Leipzig for a fee of around £36m.
The Frenchman is considered one of the finest centre back prospects in the game.
Kopites are gasping to see him in action alongside Virgil van Dijk.
The two have pace to burn and are slick with the ball at their feet, we’re in for a treat next season.
