Liverpool has signed center-back Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig after agreeing to pay his £36m release clause.
Ibrahima Konate joins Liverpool for £36m from RB Leipzig; the 22-year-old French center-back was an unused substitute in both matches when the two sides met in the Champions League earlier this year.
Konate, 22, made 21 appearances for Leipzig this season including eight Bundesliga starts as the club finished second, 13 points behind champions Bayern Munich.
He will begin a long-term contract from July 1, subject to international clearance and a successful work permit application process.
“I’m really happy to be joining such a massive club like Liverpool,” Konate said.
Konate is currently with France’s U21 squad for the UEFA European Championships.
