Liverpool expect to complete the £36million signing of RB Leipzig centre-half Ibrahima Konate in the next 48 hours after agreeing personal terms with the player and his representatives.

The Merseyside club has made its move to secure the 22-year-old before the start of next week’s UEFA Under 21 championships. Konate is part of the France squad who play their opening game against the Netherlands on Monday but he has been given permission to finalise his switch.

Liverpool are sure the player wants to move to Anfield. Konate emerged as the first choice on a list of potential centre-back recruits drawn up during last season.
