Southampton striker Sadio Mane is ready to join Liverpool after the two clubs reached an agreement on a transfer fee of 34 million pounds. The transfer is one of the most expensive in the history of the Anfield club, along with the 32.5 million pounds paid for Christian Benteke and the 35 million splashed on Andy Carroll. It is believed that Mane was one of Jurgen Klopp's favourite targets for this summer's transfer window.
The Senegalese striker impressed Liverpool manager Klopp earlier this year when he scored two goals as the Saints fought back from 2-0 down to beat the Reds 3-2 at St Mary's. Mane scored 11 goals in 37 league appearances this season. He is the same type of striker as Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi, who are both quick and technically gifted.
Christian Benteke, who is not exactly the type of striker Klopp wants, will most likely be sold as soon as possible. Mane becomes the fifth Southampton player to join Liverpool since the summer of 2014 after Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert and Nathaniel Clyne. The Saints had paid 10 million pounds for Sadio Mane to Salzburg in 2014. The Saints are still looking for a manager to replace Ronald Koeman, and they have also sold Victor Wanyama to Tottenham last week.
Liverpool are 8/1 at Bet365 to win the Premier League next season.

One of the most important chains in Southampton squad is now gone, after manager Ronald Kouman. And he won't be the last for sure. Sadio Mane had amazing season, probably most noticeable player from Southampton squad. Now the question is - how and will he fit into Liverpool's squad. In the recent past at least 50% of the players failed to do so. But the Klopp factor is now on, and with him, Grujic and few others that they recently signed they are building stable team, focusing on developing and expanding in the next few years. Reds probably don't have money to fight rich Manchester teams, Chelsea and Arsenal, but as dark horses they might raise.
