Ibrahima Konaté's signing came out of the blue last summer as Liverpool activated his £36m release clause at RB Leipzig.

His former team mate Dayot Upamecano was expected to have the higher ceiling, but FSG apparently thought otherwise.

The Liverpool centre-back, who made his senior international debut for France recently, started just 11 Premier League games last season — a figure that Klopp must re-balance to ensure that suitors from abroad don't come calling for a potential generational defender.

Just 23 years old, Liverpool look to have acquired a centre-back whose name will soon be among the world's best.

For Klopp, it will be a case of re-balancing the red pendulum to maintain the morale of both stars, altering the dials for an increase of Konaté's Premier League tally next season — but all without handing Matip a workload that doesn't reflect the quality of a player who was on par with van Dijk last season.

Jürgen Klopp has quickly evolved the criteria for who is capable of playing in the heart of the Reds' defence, though the start to life that Konaté made was difficult to foresee.
