Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be under a lot of scrutiny this summer as this will be the first full transfer window that he will get since taking charge of the Red of Merseyside.
He will be under pressure to not over-pay for his targets but will still be expected to bring in some top class talent to the club before the start of the next season.
And one such move that might be on the verge of happening in the coming weeks is Sadio Mane from Southampton.
Liverpool, have in the past, ripped into the St Marys outfit for a number of their stars and seem to be nostalgic about their players. They are now eyeing a potential move for the out-of-favor winger Sadio Mane.
According to reports from the Liverpool Echo, Mane will cost the club around the £30m mark and that the player is keen on a union with Klopp who is also said to be an admirer of the player since his time in the Bundesliga.
The Daily Mail also ran a story of their own claiming that the Reds are desperate for the Southampton winger and that he has now emerged as a major target for the club this summer.
The Saints are currently in a state of turmoil with manager Ronald Koeman on his way out of the club.
This will be a great opportunity for Liverpool to pounce on their man but the asking price is what seems to be delaying the deal.
Liverpool have in the past been criticised for over-paying for their targets especially to Southampton and it is understood that they want to make sure that the player is worth the price before spilling the cash.
Mane is an excellent player and is one of the quickest in the Premier League. He has an exceptional technique and is also strong, two qualities Klopp will admire in him. He is also a good finisher and will add dynamism to the Liverpool squad which lacked any kind of width in the last two seasons.
Having scored 15 goals and provided another 9 assists in all competition for the Saints last season, Mane is not really happy having failed to cement a starting place under Koeman and if Liverpool can act before the Saints appoint a manager, they have an easy access to the transfer target this summer.
However, nothing is official yet we will have to wait till the start of the transfer market next month to follow the truth in the stories.
Do you think Liverpool should move for Sadio Mane this summer?
