Liverpool want to extend Ibrahima Konate’s contract. The 24 year old French defender joined the club in 2021 for around £36 million from RB Leipzig. Since then, he’s been a key player in Jurgen Klopp’s team. Moreover, he’s having an amazing time at Anfield. Last season, Konate couldn’t play the first half of the entire season due to a knee injury. However, he recovered well and was a regular player in the starting 11 post his return to the team. In the meanwhile, Joel Matip’s injury condition is not good and most probably he’ll not be playing for the rest of the season. Because of this situation, Konate has got the chance to feature alongside Virgil Van Dijk or Joe Gomez as a regular starter in the backline for the Reds.

According to insidefutbol, Konate’s present contract with Liverpool is expiring on June 2026. However, the Reds want the Frenchman to stay as they’re quite impressed with his consistent performances for the club. As per some credible sources, Konate’s representatives have started talks with the club over his contract extension. Moreover, Liverpool also want to extend his contract as soon as possible in order to avoid intrests from any other club. Surprisingly, Paris Saint Germain are interested in signing Konate and Liverpool would not want that to happen. Therefore, they’ll be trying to extend his contract as soon as possible.

Liverpool want to extend Konate’s contract because he’s displaying consistent performances for the club.

Ibrahima Konate is having a wonderful season at Liverpool. He’s displaying consistent performances and that’s a clear indication that the Frenchman is enjoying his time under Jurgen Klopp. Moreover, Konate has helped Liverpool to keep 3 cleansheets in their last 6 appearances. He’s got a bright future ahead and is still in the development phase. Furthermore, playing under Jurgen Klopp is only going to level up his game.
