Nathan Redmond has signed from Norwich City to Southampton this weekend in a deal thought to be worth £10m according to the Independent.
This will now pave the way for Sadio Mane to sign for Liverpool later this week.
Liverpool to sign Mane..
Sadio Mane has emerged as Klopps no.1 target over the past week. Klopp is determined to sharpen up his attack ready for his 1st full season.
Initially Southampton were looking for closer to £40m for Mane. But I’m sure that now they have already signed the replacement they will accept closer to the realistic £30m fee.
As written in my article Liverpool in for Mane he will add some much needed pace and power up front for the Reds. Who have had to heavily depend on Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino to lead the line as Christian Benteke was out of favour and Daniel Sturridge struggled to build form following his return from injury.
What would happen to Benteke..?
Surely this will also mean that Christian Benteke is going to be shown the door now, according to 90min.com Crystal Palace are very keen.
It was very clear towards the of last season that Benteke wasn’t in Klopp’s plans. Preferring Origi or Firmino whilst Sturridge was injured.
This must have been hard for him to just sit and watch. Should he move on, I really do wish him all the best.
