Sadio Mane will have undergo a medical at Liverpool today as part of a £30m switch to Anfield.

The Senegal international will travel to Merseyside today to discuss personal terms with the club and is expected to join the club in the next two days.

The 24-year-old joins Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne in making the switch from St Mary's to Liverpool.

Mane had been a target for Manchester United among other clubs, but looks set to be Jurgen Klopp's fourth signing after Marko Grujic, Joel Matip and Loris Karius. He scored 11 goals last season to help Southampton's push for European football.

The deal would make him Liverpool's third most expensive player in the club's history, behind Christian Benteke (£32.5m) and Andy Carroll (£35m).
