The highly-rated defender has agreed to a long-term contract. He is poised to begin a new chapter in his career at Anfield.

“I’m incredibly thrilled to be joining such a massive club like Liverpool,” Konate told the Reds’ official website after sealing his move to England.

Right now, my concentration is on the U21 European Championships with France. I know that after this tournament, I will be joining one of the top teams in the world, which gives me a wonderful feeling.

I’ve worked hard for many years to reach this position. I’d like to express my gratitude to everyone at RB Leipzig and everyone I worked with there. The coaches my teammates, the staff, and, most importantly, the fans. Your encouragement helped me grow up and become not only a better player but a better man throughout my time there. I will be eternally thankful.”
