Southampton winger Saido Mane is set to undergo a medical with Liverpool today.
Liverpool have reached an agreement with Southampton for the Senegalese forward who is set to complete the move this week.
Jurgen Klopp has been determined to add Mane, 24, to his squad and Liverpool have been in discussions with Southampton for much of the past four weeks in order to strike a deal. Klopp believes Mane has the pace, energy and aggression to give Liverpool’s attack a different dimension, and in the coming days he will be confirmed as the third biggest signing in the club’s history behind Andy Carroll and Christian Benteke.
Klopp wanted to have Mane on board for the start of pre-season — Liverpool’s non-Euro 2016 players return on July 2 — and he could make his debut in the first pre-season game at Tranmere on July 8.Further additions are expected, with Liverpool having submitted bids for Udinese midfielder Piotr Zielinski and Leicester left back Ben Chilwell, while they are tracking Borussia Monchengladbach’s Mahmoud Dahoud.
