However, Al-Ittihad seems to have set their targets on Liverpool as they have been linked with moves for Mohammed Salah and Joe Gomez as well.
RMC Sport has reported that their interest in Konate comes after OGC Nice's Jean-Clair Todibo rejected a potential move to Saudi Arabia. However, reports have indicated that the Reds are unwilling to part with Konate or Gomez, as Jurgen Klopp sees them as a key part of his squad. Not only that, the report has indicated that the French defender has turned down the approach but that hasn’t deterred them.
