Liverpool player and posed for media content in Austria on Thursday.
The centre-back – a new arrival from RB Leipzig – sat down for an exclusive, extended chat with Liverpoolfc.com that can be .
The defender officially joined the Reds from RB Leipzig on July 1 and will link up with Jürgen Klopp’s squad when pre-season training gets under way.
Before then, Konate tried out the team’s home and away strips for 2021-22 – with the latter unveiled for pre-order today – on the streets of Paris.
At the Reds’ pre-season training base in Salzburg, the No.5 also went in front of the cameras to capture the GIFs and media imagery that will be used during his debut season at Anfield.
It is believed that Leipzig’s chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff contacted the Reds to enquire whether they were looking to make a move for the Frenchman, only to be told that he is not being targeted.
If it turns out to be true, it would completely contradict the reports in the English press over the past week that have suggested that the Merseyside club will trigger Konate’s €40m (£34m) release clause.
Not every journalist has been as adamant that Konate will be moving to Liverpool. For example, Paul Joyce stated yesterday that the 21-year-old is just one of three possible options ahead of the summer transfer window.
If the rumours about the defender moving to Anfield this summer turn out to be false, it could lead to the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United moving to the front of the queue for the player.
