Tottenham Hotspur have been added to the list of suitors, which already includes Liverpool and Manchester United, for RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate, who is available for around €40m this summer.

That’s according to SportBILD journalist Christian Falk, who says Spurs are aware of a release clause in the defender’s contract.

Konate has established himself as one of the hottest defensive prospects in Europe in recent years with Leipzig, starring alongside Dayot Upamecano in the heart of his defence.

His performances have not gone unnoticed outside of Germany, with several reports from the country indicating that several Premier League clubs are all keen on him.

Liverpool are thought to be looking at the centre-back, as well as teammate Upamecano, while Manchester United have also been credited with an interest in the past too.

Tottenham can now be added to that list according to Falk, who says all three clubs are aware they could get they could get the 21-year old for a bargain price this summer.

“Of course he’s in great demand,” he told BILD.

“But he’s also got an exit clause of around €30m plus that can be made possible this summer. Liverpool know that, United know that and Tottenham too. 

“Leipzig have to be prepared for an exciting summer transfer window if they are to avoid losing two centre-backs come the end of it.”
