Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal in fight for Bundesliga defender

Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United are all reportedly locked in a summer battle to land RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.

The 19-year-old came through the youth setup at Paris FC, the city where he was born, before eventually moving on to Sochaux where he was snapped up from by Leipzig.

He made 42 appearances for the Bundesliga side this season having firmly established himself in the starting XI despite his young age, and the France U21 international is now apparently earning admirers from abroad.

According to Twitter transfer source @EuroUnited6, the aforementioned Premier League trio are tracking the France U21 international, with all three looking to bolster their back line.

Konate is valued at around £27million by Transfermarkt, while Liverpool will have hope that midfielder Naby Keita can persuade him to follow in his footsteps and make the move to Anfield from RB Leipzig.

Arsenal and United meanwhile are arguably the two clubs in most need of a centre-back option, with the pair having conceded the most goals in the top six compared to any other teams.
