Ibrahima Konate has already completed some of his medical tests ahead of his proposed move to Liverpool this summer, according to reports in France.

Earlier this week, reports claimed that the Premier League champions were on the verge of agreeing a deal for the 21-year-old, who has a £34 million release clause.

Liverpool’s campaign has been severely hampered by long-term injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, and Jurgen Klopp’s side are now prioritising a new central defender ahead of the summer window.

According to RMC Sport, Konate has already passed some of the medical examinations required to seal his move to Liverpool.

The report claims that Konate’s entourage remain ‘cautious’ about Liverpool’s progress and insist ‘several clubs’ are still in the running for the defender’s signature.

When asked about the progress of Liverpool’s push to sign Konate, RB Leipzig’s sporting director Markus Krosche claimed the Premier League club ‘is not an option’ for the French defender.

‘I can’t say anything on that topic. I think that this is not an option for Ibu,’ Krosche told Stats Perform News.

‘He has a long contract with us and he knows what we mean to him and what he means to us.

‘He was unlucky last year as he had a longer injury but this year he is in a good way and he is an extremely important player that has a lot of potential.

‘We want to help him to further develop, and we play internationally, have a very good team, so I don’t see a reason for him to leave us.’
