Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are anticipating a busy week ahead, with reports suggesting Jurgen Klopp is ready to make a significant investment in the market.
Mane has emerged as the prime target to bolster the midfield ranks at Merseyside, with Klopp getting frustrated in his pursuit of Bayern Munich’s Mario Gotze, and the Liverpool boss is ready to push intensely for a move next week to the tune of £30m.
Liverpool have already made a formal approach for the 24-year-old but our landlord believes the Reds will find it difficult to complete a deal within seven days, as the Saints are focusing on appointing a new manager after Ronald Koeman jumped ship.
Mane would find a lot of players he can relate to at Anfield though, with Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren all vacating the south coast for Merseyside in recent years.
Liverpool fans, would this deal help you get back amongst the Champions League places? Let us know in the comments below!
