Prising Konate away from the German outfit could prove challenging, however. He is a crucial player for them and his contract with the club runs until June 2023.

Also, the Reds face competition from other Premier League heavyweights. Arsenal and Manchester United are noted by Euro United as interested parties.

Liverpool not interested in Depay move.
Liverpool have no interest in a move to sign Lyon forward Memphis Depay, according to L’Equipe, as cited on social media by Robin Bairner. A few weeks ago there was speculation surfacing that Liverpool were interested in the Lyon forward. Depay himself added fuel to this by posting a video on his Instagram account in which he casually walked into a private red plane with a full red suit on as well. However, according to these latest reports, this no longer appears to be the case as the European champions begin their work for the summer transfer window.
