RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann, who agreed to join Bayern Munich at the end of the season, has responded to claims Ibrahima Konate is set to be transferred to Liverpool.
The German boss reacted sharply to the rumors, saying it was not something he discussed with the Frenchman.
Speaking to the media following Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Stuttgart, Nagelsmann said: “[The reports are] perceived like all other rumors. Not that important to me. I haven’t told him yetAccording to Kicker.

Following a report from Athletic’s David Ornstein last month that indicated Konate was set to move to Anfield, very few days have gone by without a twist in the defender’s history.
The young Frenchman was asked about the rumors at a press conference earlier this month and couldn’t help but smile and insist.I think I can’t answer this question,”According to the Liverpool Echo.
The Reds, in desperate condition with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all injured, signed Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak in the January transfer window.
But Davies is yet to make his debut for Liverpool, while Kabak has signed a six-month loan deal with a option buy – not obligation – so their future remains unclear, which only adds fuel to the fire that are the rumors of Konate.
