Per the Mirror, Mane will be unveiled on Tuesday as the fourth signing of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as manager of Liverpool. His transfer fee will reportedly be for £30 million.

This past season Mane scored 11 goals and made six assists for the Saints, and famously recorded a hat-trick in a 4-2 win over Manchester City in May.

In two seasons at Southampton, the Senegal star scored 21 goals in 67 Premier League appearances and 25 goals in 75 total appearances.

Prior to his 2014 move to the Saints, Mane plied his trade in Austria with Red Bull Salzburg, where he set career highs in scoring with 16 goals in the 2012-13 season and another 13 in the 2013-14 season.
