Liverpool announce the signing of Ibrahima Konaté

Liverpool have made the first signing of the summer as they will look to rebuild on what was a season marred by inconsistency.

Ibrahim Konaté has been linked with move to the Reds from as early as March and the deal has finally been confirmed.

Analysis of the move

Van Dijk and Konaté has to be the best centre back pairing in the world if they both stay fit and get to a good level of understanding. Liverpool proving smart recruitment once again.

I stand with what I said years ago, Konaté is a better player than Upamecano. Only thing Upamecano has on Konaté is his injury record.

Although I am surprised they haven’t gone for Sven Botman instead. Genuinely curious to see which big club will get him. Top player who should get his big team move this summers
