Southampton have made a late £11.8m offer to sign Sadio Mane from Red Bull Salzburg as they look to ward off interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Daily Mail reports.
Ronald Koeman sees the 22-year-old as the perfect candidate to fill the left wing role after seeing a host of stars leave for other English Premier League clubs.
The Saints recently picked up three points from their previous game with a 3-1 victory over West Ham, but are still in search of more new faces before the close of the window.
Although the club has been blasted over the recent departures of Calum Chambers, Luke Shaw, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, and Rickie Lambert, it looks as though Koeman is still able to maintain his squad’s intensity.
The Senegalese winger has been in great form, scoring 45 goals in his last 86 appearances, netting 23 and providing 18 from the previous season alone.
