Liverpool this week clinched the signing of winger Sadio Mane from Southampton, their most expensive summer addition so far.

He joins Joel Matip and Loris Karius, who have been recruited from Bundesliga sides Schalke and Mainz respectively.

Here is a look at how the Reds could line up in 2016/17...

Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet would be displaced in goal by Loris Karius, who can get a headstart on the Belgian early on at pre-season, with the former currently at Euro 2016, where he is a back-up.

Fellow new boy Joel Matip could be given the chance to build a partnership with Dejan Lovren, who impressed in the latter half of last season.

Alberto Moreno is unlikely to be involved after his Europa League final disaster, although no replacement has been signed as it stands, so youngster Joe Gomez could get an opportunity.

Daniel Sturridge would have to fight off competition from Divock Origi up front and a returning Danny Ings, while Adam Lallana may be a player unlucky to miss out thanks to Sadio Mane's arrival.
