Gunners legend Ian Wright has chosen Liverpool star Sadio Mane as the signing of the season so far, when speaking to BT Sport Premier League Tonight show.

The Senegal international has been a revelation since his £34 million move to the Reds from Southampton over the summer, and his power, pace and direct style of play has provided Jürgen Klopp with the ability to insert variation into his tactical play.

The Anfield side have enjoyed an impressive start to their Premier League campaign, and currently sit in fourth position, just two points behind league leaders Manchester City.

The 24-year-old has been in fine form for Liverpool, scoring three goals in seven league outings.

Wright, speaking on BT Sport Premier League Tonight show, responded to a question pertaining to who he thought the best signing of the summer was:

"I’d go with Mane.‚Äč I like Mane.”

Mane's pace has caused opposition defenders no end of problems throughout the course of the season so far, and has given Liverpool the option of playing more counter-attacking style football by using the Senegal international as an outlet.

If he continues his rich vein of form, there is no reason why Liverpool can't make a sustained challenge for the Premier League title.
