Name: Sadio Mane
Position: Forward

The Premier League big guns have been reportedly monitoring the Senegal forward’s situation at Southampton this campaign – with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United ready to pounce should the winger suddenly become available this month.

The 23-year-old, who arrived at St Mary’s Stadium from Red Bull Salzburg in a deal worth £11.8m back in September 2014, has scored an impressive seven goals and assisted a further eight strikes in 26 appearances in all competitions this season.

However Mane, who has 29 international caps for his country, was dropped from the starting eleven by manager Ronald Koeman against Norwich City earlier this month after turning up late to a team pre-match meeting.

With Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich also said to be interested in his services this year, Mane is thought to be unwilling to extend his current contract at Saints which runs out in 2018.

After Man Utd opened the bidding for the Senegalese star at £20m during the previous transfer window, it is thought Mane is now valued at around £30m this time round.
