It was revealed on Monday morning that the Reds have made contact with Konate regarding a move.
The Athletic have said a deal is currently being finalised and talks with the 21-year-old are at an advanced stage.
Konate's release clause is believed to be around £34 million and a host of top clubs are said to be interested.
But just what will Liverpool be getting? CFComps has put together some of his best bits and Liverpool fans have every right to be excited.
Ibrahima Konaté - Liverpool's New Signing ?
- CF Comps (@CF_Comps) March 29, 2021
Konate played two games in the Champions League last season as Leipzig made it to the semi-finals.
Armed with a wicked pass as well as breathtaking pace, he has all the potential in the world to be Virgil van Dijk's perfect partner.
He is yet to make a senior debut for France but is a crown jewel in their talented Under-21s side.
Fans have reacted to the compilation and they're hoping a deal can get over the line soon.
If he stays injury free bro, carries the ball well, good end product for a cb, eye for a pass, really good reactions, fast, hes made for us https://t.co/2Um91ovqbQ- Dawson (JotaSZN) (@ftbllDaws) March 29, 2021

Liverpool's season has been rocked by injuries in defence and they've slipped to sixth in the Premier League table.
Last season's champions have seen van Dijk and Joe Gomez go down with long term injuries, as well as Joel Matip.
A deal for Konate could impact the future of Kabak, with Liverpool needing to make a decision over an £18 million buy option.
