Liverpool Arsenal and United are tracking RB Leipzig 6 ft 3 powerhouse

RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League.

The 19-year-old has established himself as a regular in the Leipzig first team since joining the club two years ago, making 43 appearances across all competitions during the 2018-19 campaign.

Konate’s form over that period has attracted attention across Europe, and Sport Witness reports that there is particularly strong interest from the Premier League.

Arsenal have previously been linked with the France Under-21 international, while Manchester United and Liverpool are also now understood to be keeping tabs on him.

Leipzig paid just £270,000 for Konate when signing him from Sochaux in 2017, but his value is expected to have skyrocketed over the past two seasons.

Konate is also contracted to the Bundesliga outfit until 2023, meaning that Leipzig have no need to lower their asking price for the youngster.
