Since signing from Red Bull Salzburg in summer 2014, the Senegal international has enjoyed two impressive campaigns at St. Mary’s – bagging 21 goals in 67 Premier League appearances.
That includes a three-minute hat-trick against Aston Villa during his debut season and goals against a number of the Premier League’s top clubs last term, such as Chelsea, Manchester City, Everton and the Reds.
Indeed, the versatile forward netted three past Liverpool in three appearances last season and has seemingly become the Reds’ top target for the summer after missing out on Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze.
Last Thursday, The Telegraph reported that the Anfield outfit would look to tie up a deal for the 24-year-old this week and their prophecy is proving true, with Mane reportedly undertaking a medical at Merseyside this morning.
His transfer to Liverpool is expected to be worth somewhere in the region of £34million.
