Guess Who Liverpool Just Signed

Liverpool have signed Senegal forward Sadio Mane from Southampton for £34m.

Mane, 24, joins on a five-year deal and is the Reds’ third summer signing after German goalkeeper Loris Karius and Cameroon defender Joel Matip.

Mane who scored 21 goals in 67 Premier League appearances for Saints after joining for £10m from Salzburg in 2014.

He said “Today is a big day and I am very happy to sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe,”

“It’s a club that has won a lot of trophies and has a big history.”

Mane becomes the most expensive African player in history, with his transfer topping the £28m Manchester City paid Swansea City for Wilfried Bony in January 2015.

He is the fifth player to make the switch from St Mary’s to Anfield since the summer of 2014 – following Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert – now at West Brom – Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne.

Mane played out wide and centrally for Southampton, and will compete with the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Danny Ings, Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke for a place in the side.

However, Benteke – a £32.5m signing from Aston Villa last summer – has said he will consider leaving if Klopp continues to leave him out next season.
