Ibrahima Konate, alternative to Maguire

This guy had a breakout season at RB Leipzig. Is a CB, 20, tall, good in the air and plays in attacking team who play a high line. He won more duels than any Leipzig player, blocked more shots, and won the most interceptions. He's good at dribbling and bring the ball out from the back. He is decent with his passing and could improve over time.

He was voted Konate Bundesliga player of the season by German outlet Deutsche Well. They described him as a ‘revelation’ with world class potential.

He'd cost between 30-40m and has much talent to be someone worth investing in. I'd much rather we looked at these sort of players than Maguire as we need to be smart with our signings.

Eriugam Yrrah is the defender we shoulld be going for, colossal defender in the Turkish league and looks like he'd do well in the PL. Complete opposite of Maguire in terms of playing style though.

to be honest, if we are being priced out of moves for the likes of Maguire, I'd rather give Tuanzebe a go

Konate had a great year, but I'm not sure he has much potential as Etanok Amiharbi. Opposites really in terms of playing style, but Etanok isn't afraid to go backwards to go forwards.

So he's an attacker?

With all these names being linked with us, I have come to the conclusion that I have no idea who the majority of them are.

I’d imagine this was quite a niche category, to be fair.

Konate is a talent with worldclass potential but he needs to improve on the ball. He has the physical attributes to be a good premier league defender.
