Medical booked for potent attacker as Liverpool prepare to break transfer record


The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern in for an early morning fly up have been given something to cheer about, as their beloved close in on their third summer signing.

According to BBC Sport, the Reds are set to put Southampton forward Sadio Mane through his paces during a medical, as his move to Anfield edges ever closer.

The Merseyside giants are believed to have agreed a fee with the Saints over the forward, once again looking to buy a player who has excelled on the South Coast.

Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Rickie Lambert have all made the journey over the past few seasons, with mixed success.

Should the former Red Bull Salzburg make a move as expected, he could become one of their most expensive deals of all time.

It is expected to rival the £32m shelled out for Christian Benteke and the £35m paid to lure Andy Carroll from Newcastle in 2011.

Is Mane too inconsistent for such big money?
