To sign Konate, Liverpool know what they have to do.

Should Liverpool wish to land Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig this summer then it could well involve a heavier outlay than first thought.

There is a release clause of around £34m in place and with the Bundesliga in no rush to sell or be drawn into a haggle, Liverpool will have to pay up.

That never has been the FSG way.

Under Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool have triggered release clauses before, most notably to sign Christian Benteke from Aston Villa in 2015 in a deal worth £32.5m, that was spread over a period of time.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has been heavily linked with the Reds, with boss Jurgen Klopp keen to add to his defensive options this summer to avoid the same kind of problems that have dogged them during this topsy-turvy campaign.

History has shown how adept Edwards has been at getting the best out of the transfer market and should a deal for Konate press ahead it is highly unlikely it is one that is laden with huge risk.
