Liverpool have a five-man shortlist including RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate and Ozan Kabak as they look to strengthen at centre-back this summer.

France U21 international Konate reportedly has a buyout clause of around 40m euros (£34m).

Liverpool are yet to decide on the future of Turkey’s Kabak, 21, who joined on loan from Schalke in January.
