The defender made 28 Bundesliga appearances in total and it looks like his performances in those games have caught the eye of scouts across Europe, including those from the Reds

Prising Konate away from Leipzig could prove challenging, though. Liverpool have found it tough to deal with RB in the past and with the player under contract until June 2023, there is no real need for the German side to let him leave.
