Rumours over whether or not Liverpool will make a move for Ibrahima Konate continue to do the rounds.

The RB Leipzig defender is understood to be on a five-man shortlist of centre-backs that the Reds are looking at this summer.

Various reports have emerged since Konate’s name was mentioned as a possible target for Liverpool, most of them giving some variation on the deal being close to completion.

However, a recent report from Germany seems to have gone completely against that narrative.

According to SportBILD, Liverpool have told Leipzig chief Oliver Mintzlaff they don't intend to pursue a deal for the Frenchman.

BILD insists that while Konate looks set to leave the Bundesliga outfit at the end of the season, ‘his new club will not be Liverpool’.

They go on to say that, as a result of the rumours in England, Mintzlaff called the Reds to ask if there was anything in it.

He was reportedly told that the defender is ‘currently not an issue’ for the club, meaning they will not be moving for him this summer.

Konate is regarded as one of the best young centre-backs in Europe, but has spent large parts of the past couple of seasons on the sidelines.

He suffered from a muscle injury in October 2019 which ruled him out for the rest of that season, and has since fallen down the pecking order in Julian Nagelsmann’s reckoning.

The 21-year-old is thought to be under contract at Leipzig until 2023, and it remains to be seen whether or not a new venture awaits him when the transfer window opens in the summer.
