Mane scored 11 Premier League goals last season for Southampton last season including a brace against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

He joins former Southampton players Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana at Anfield, with Rickie Lambert another who has been bought from the club, and since sold.

Liverpool have already signed Joel Matip and Loris Karius this summer, and Mane adds Premier League experience and explosiveness from wide areas.
