Ibrahima Konate has got Liverpool fans' pulses racing after the Anfield transfer target removed 'RB Leipzig player' from his Instagram biography.
The centre-half is reportedly on the verge of completing a summer switch to the Reds as Jurgen Klopp looks to add defensive reinforcements in the upcoming window.
Konate has 107,000 followers on Instagram and some eagle-eyed supporters of his noticed he had taken away any mention of Leipzig on his profile.
And when Liverpool fans got wind of it, they were sure it was a major hint that his move to the Premier League is all but confirmed.
@ LFC_9ja said: "I'm really excited about this potential signing. Can't wait to see him and Virgil play at CB."
@ DanStuart added: "It's only a matter of time."
@ SnowHalliburton tweeted: "Announcement soon."
@ lfcxtn said: "It's actually happening."
@ kabakattack19 tweeted: "Theory. Konate has mysteriously removed his bio and replaced it with a video with him and Harry Pinero which is based on getting to know Ibrahima Konate. Could he want us Liverpool fans to click on that?"
@ DoubleO17t added: "He’s coming."
Konate has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, but Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff still hopes to retain his services next season.
However, the defender has a release clause, reportedly around the £30million mark.
And Mintzlaff admits that puts Leipzig at a disadvantage if clubs like Liverpool come calling and decide to trigger it.
He told Sky Deutschland, as per the Liverpool Echo : “We’ll see what happens. I spoke to him this week.
“No decision has been made yet.
“There is an exit clause. That’s why we don’t sit in the driver’s seat.
“He is a player we want to keep.”
