Exclusive: £30.5m beast is house hunting in Liverpool ahead of impending move to Anfield

Liverpool target Ibrahima Konate is house hunting in Liverpool ahead of his impending move to Anfield, with the switch now a formality.

Anfield Central sources have been told that the Frenchman has begun his search for a home in Liverpool as a move to Merseyside edges ever closer.

Just about every stage of the process that is signing a player from another club has been complete with payment of the release clause and a medical still remaining as well as a few minor paperwork issues.

Personal terms haven’t been an issue for some time now ever since a verbal agreement was reached at the start of the month. Personal terms followed soon after and, as Fabrizio Romano confirmed this week, a £30.5m deal is close to being completed.

Konate’s move to Liverpool seems inevitable now but supporters will feel insecure about the last time a Frenchman was almost through the door, with Nabil Fekir’s traumatising transfer saga still fresh in the eyes of supporters.

The former Lyon skipper was pushing hard for a move to Anfield and even conducted his LFC TV media duties before a deal was scuppered over a knee injury, with the player’s brother also reportedly playing a role in the move being called off.

Konate’s injury history is still a question mark but Liverpool are clearly confident that it won’t be an issue going forward.
