As per multiple reports in the English press today, Serie A giants Inter Milan are preparing an offer for Liverpool winger Sadio Mane.
Mane arrived at Anfield last summer from Southampton for a fee of £34 million, immediately endearing himself to the Reds faithful with some electrifying displays.
An impressive haul of 13 goals and 5 assists in 27 Premier League appearances was limited by the Senegalese’s involvement in the African Cup of Nations and a nasty injury suffered during the Merseyside derby in April.
Despite the African having only been a Liverpool player for one season, and Jurgen Klopp deeming the 25-year-old an absolutely integral member of his current squad, a growing number of sources today suggest that Inter Milan will go all in for Mane over the coming weeks.
According to the Express, the Nerazzurri are readying an opening offer of £35 million for the former Saints standout, though this will no doubt be rebuffed by Liverpool without a second thought.
Further, more lucrative offers are thought to be in the offing on the part of Luciano Spalletti’s side, though, while the possible departure of winger Ivan Perisic for Manchester United could see Inter’s push for Mane become even more concerted towards the transfer window’s end.
