Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have gathered to discuss the latest rumour concerning their beloved football club, which suggests Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign a familiar name.
The Liverpool Echo states the German boss wants to continue what has been a familiar trend for the Reds in recent years, as he’s keen on raiding Southampton for the services of Senegalese midfielder Sadio Mane.
Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren are three members of the squad who have made the move from the south coast to Merseyside in recent years and Mane is next on Liverpool’s hit-list, with Klopp keen to bolster his side.
It’s specifically stated that Mane is a target for the Reds instead of recently relegated Newcastle United winger Andros Townsend, as the latest reports declare Liverpool hold no interest in the England international.
Signing Mane may be difficult for Liverpool though, particularly with their lack of Champions League football, but our landlord thinks it’s a possibility, as other sides eye bigger targets.
Would Mane be a good signing for Liverpool? Let us know in the comments below!
