Liverpool are now not thought to be pursuing a move for RB Leipzig centre-back Ibrahima Konate, despite initial reports suggesting a deal was close to completion.

That doesn't definitively mean that Liverpool will not sign Konate, whose affordable release clause means things can change at any given second, but most in Germany seem confused as to why this story started circulating in the first place.

However, Leipzig immediately cast doubt on the rumour by stating Liverpool was 'not an option' for Konate.

As the story goes, Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff was so bemused by the story that he contacted Liverpool to find out what was going on, only to be told that Konate is 'not an issue' for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Late in March, it was reported that Liverpool were 'finalising' the signing of the 21-year-old, whose £35m release clause makes him one of the most affordable young defenders around.

It is still expected that Konate will leave Leipzig this summer, but it's said pretty confidently that his next destination won't be Liverpool, who are not thought to be interested in the centre-back at this point.

Kabak seems likely to be the first, but all the signs suggest he won't be partnering Konate next year.
