Liverpool will have to settle on extra bonuses if they close a deal for RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.
The RBL youngster is expected to make the move to Anfield this summer - just as Liverpool send Ozan Kabak back to parent club Schalke.
Kicker says Konate has agreed a five-year contract with Liverpool to 2026.
And terms between the two clubs is also close to being settled with an initial €40m to be put down by Liverpool.
However it won't end there, with a further €6m due in bonuses.
