Transfer Gossip: Liverpool Attempts to Steer Ace Away from PSG with New Deal

Marquinhos has his issues. Some want to see Paris Saint-Germain begin looking for a replacement for the Brazilian. The 29-year-old has made mental mishaps, so PSG should consider looking at another central defender.

One name speculated to be of interest to the French giants is Liverpool FC center-back Ibrahima Konate. The 24-year-old is under contract until 2026 and recently spoke about possibly playing for PSG. However, the Reds reportedly want to steer the Frenchman away from his hometown club.

Le10Sport reports that Liverpool has begun negotiations with Konate’s agent over a contract extension. Nonetheless, there’s no urgency on the matter, considering he has three years on his contract. 

Still, these talks begin because the Premier League side wants to reward Konate’s form to steer away recent interest from PSG. The Ligue 1 side has prioritized recruiting top French talents, especially those from the Greater Paris Area, which the Liverpool defender checks off. 

It will be interesting to see whether the defender agrees to stay long-term with the English side or will consider returning to his hometown club.
