Decisions, decisions.

The transfer window was ticking into its final few hours at the end of January 2021 and Jurgen Klopp knew he had to act fast.

The FA Cup final is a huge event.

Given the dire state of proceedings at the turn of 2021 and the swiftness at which his transfer was concluded - Liverpool actually confirmed Konate before last season had finished - it would not be unreasonable to assume that overtures were made to Leipzig for Konate long before he was officially confirmed as a Reds player.
