Liverpool are reportedly willing to pay £30m for striker/winger Sadio Mane.

The Southampton player has been inconsistent this season but has shown flashes of brilliance at times and is highly sought after this summer. The Saints just purchased youngster Nathan Redmond, opening the way for Mane to make his exit. With Liverpool and others getting in a bidding war, Mane could easily go for £40m this summer.

Southampton have announced the signing of winger Nathan Redmond.

The Norwich winger joins the Saints on a five-year deal scheduled to keep him at St Mary's until 2021. The youngster has a bright future ahead of him and was very impressive for Norwich last season, despite failing to keep them in the Premier League. Redmond will likely start and is a decent mid to late round fantasy pick.

Liverpool is reportedly in the advanced stages of securing a summer transfer for Southampton midfielder Sadio Mane.

The Reds have been in talks with Southampton over the past week and are close to agreeing to a fee in the range of £30 million. Southampton originally wanted £40 million for the 24-year-old bought for just £10 million from Salzberg in the summer of 2014, but the departure of Ronald Koeman has hastened negotiations over a summer move. The Senegalese international scored 11 goals last season in the Premier League but really found his form with eight goals in the final eight games of the season.

"Sky Sports" confirm that Norwich City midfielder Nathan Redmond is undergoing a medical at Southampton on Saturday.

Norwich City has reportedly accepted an £11 million bid for the 22-year-old as the Canaries are looking to sell their most valuable players as they face another season in the Championship after just one year back in the Premier League. Redmond scored six goals in 34 Premier League appearances last season and helped lead the England U21s to a Toulon Tournament title last month. Redmond is expected to replace Southampton star Sadio Mane as the midfielder is expected to join Liverpool in a £30 million-plus deal.

Portugal managed to erase three deficits as Cristiano Ronaldo finally got going, scoring twice and adding an assist, drawing with Hungary, 3-3.

Portugal manage to make it through the group stage without winning once, drawing three times. They were down early to Hungary, when former West Brom midfielder Zoltan Gera fired a laser from outside of the box, beating Rui Patricio low and to his left. Portugal leveled when Ronaldo delivered a class through ball to former Manchester United winger Luis Nani who slotted home. Things got crazy in the second half when, in a 15 minute span, Hungary's Balazs Dzsudzsak scored twice and Ronaldo scored twice to cancel it out, including a nifty backheel finish on his first goal. Group F definitely proved to be the most surprising of the tournament as Hungary finish on top, Iceland went unbeaten to finish second, Portugal barely squeaked through and Austria were sent packing.

Amid rumours that Victor Wanyama is set to leave, Southampton has locked down a critical part of its midfield in Steven Davis.

The 31-year-old is currently captaining Northern Ireland at the country's first European championships, but that didn't prevent him from signing a new three-year contract to keep him at the St Mary's through the summer of 2019. Davis has made 155 appearances in all competitions for Saints since arriving at the club in 2012. Last season, the midfielder scored five goals for the sixth-place finishers, leading a resurgence at the end of the season. Davis joins James Ward-Prowse, Fraser Forster and Virgil van Dijk in recently signing new contracts at the club.

Republic of Ireland did their best to keep pace with Belgium, but the Red Devils eventually opened the floodgates in the second half and won, 2-0.

Republic of Ireland played their scrappy brand of football, doing the best they could to make up for a lack of quality, and it served them well for the first 45 minutes with the two sides staying level on the scoreboard. The tide turned just after the second half began, when Toby Alderweireld caught Shane Long with his boot on an attempted clearance. The play could have been adjudged worthy of a penalty, but the referee did not see it that way and Belgium would score on a counter-attack just moments later. There simply wasn't enough attacking pressure from the likes of Long, Wes Hoolahan and Robbie Brady and Republic of Ireland were eventually run over. On an optimistic note, they play Italy in the final round and the Azzurri will likely rest the majority of their regular starters.

The Italian national team received a boost with the news that forward Graziano Pelle is set to be fit to face Sweden on Friday.

The Southampton forward suffered a foot injury in Monday's 2-0 win against Belgium in the opening game of Group E, where he scored the club's final goal in the final minutes of the match to secure the three points, but a scan revealed no damage to the foot. Pelle also suffered a dislocated finger that required treatment during the game with the two injuries keeping him out of training on Tuesday. Incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte can clinch a spot in the knockout stages with a win against Sweden.

Southampton are close to signing winger Nathan Redmond.

The midfielder is on his way out of relegated Norwich and Southampton are making a move. He fits a need at Southampton, especially with players potentially leaving this summer, and brings much needed stability to the position. Sadio Mane could be on his way out, and if that happens, Redmond will be a solid fantasy pick next season.

Graziano Pelle was forced to sit out of training after the 30-year-old suffered an injury to his hand during Monday nights’ 2-0 win over Belgium.

Pelle scored Italy’s second goal in stoppage time, to help seal an excellent victory for the Azzurri over one of the pre-tournament favourites in their Group E opener. However, the Southampton striker almost didn’t finish the game after he was seen receiving treatment on the hour mark having dislocated his little finger. A patched up Pelle was able to continue, but following advice from the medical team, he watched his teammates train before leaving with the team doctor. The injury should not prevent Pelle from playing against Sweden on Friday.

The agent of Southampton forward Graziano Pelle confirmed he is in talks with Everton, Stoke City and Chinese clubs over a summer move.

Reports suggest Southampton is looking to profit off Pelle this summer with only one year left on the Italian's contract. With manager Ronald Koeman set to leave for Everton, the Toffees could look to sign Pelle especially if Romelu Lukaku follows through on his plan to leave for a Champions League club. The 30-year-old has scored 23 goals in two seasons at the St Mary's and scored for Italy in the Azzurri's 2-0 victory over Belgium in their opening game of the European championships on Monday.

Jurgen Klopp is eyeing Southampton's Sadio Mane as his major transfer target this summer, willing to bid an estimated £30m.

Mane was heavily linked to a move to Old Trafford last season under Louis van Gaal and newly appointed Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is also interested in the dangerous Senegalese star. Liverpool apparently are ready to break the bank for his services as well. Mane is coming off a generally disappointing season but finished the campaign strong and there is no doubting the 24-year-old is oozing talent and capable of being a key figure with a big club. The Saints are no stranger to offloading talent to the Reds, as Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana have all made the move in recent years. With Ronald Koeman looking set to leave St Mary's for Goodison Park, it is doubtful Southampton will be able to hold on to Mane for much longer.

Heading into the week of the Euros, Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand is still receiving medical attention for a knock.

The left-back has not trained with the England national team since picking up a knock in a friendly win against Australia on May 27. After arriving at the national team's base for the European championships in Chantilly, just north of Paris, Bertrand was held out of training in order to receive treatment for the unspecified injury. With just four days before the Three Lions' tournament opener against Russia in Marseille, all signs point to Tottenham defender Danny Rose receiving the start at left-back.

Stoke City is expected to win the race to sign Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond after the Canaries were relegated.

The England U21 talent is expected to leave Norwich City this summer and is likely to go for more than £10million with just one season left on his current contract. The 22-year-old recorded six goals and two assists in his first full Premier League season. But whatever transfer fee Norwich City receives, the club will owe Birmingham City 15 percent as part of his £3.2million transfer in the summer of 2013. But the Potters will face competition from West Brom, Crystal Palace and West Ham, according to reports in England.

Graziano Pelle will be assessed after the Southampton striker limped out of Wednesdays’ training session due to an apparent knee problem.

Antonio Conte is sweating on the fitness of his 30-year-old hitman having already lost the likes of Riccardo Montolivo, Marco Verratti and Claudio Marchisio to injury while Thiago Motta struggles to shake off a calf problem. Pelle managed three winning goals from his six starts in qualifying and was once again on the scoresheet as Italy edged past Scotland in a Euro warm-up game 12-days ago. Domestically, the Saints attacker finished strongly following a difficult mid-season dip in form, due in part to an ongoing knee problem. Pelle later admitted he wasn’t 100 percent fit, before taking time out to fully recover. Chelsea bound Antonio Conte has said places are still up for grabs for the opener against Belgium, but all being well Pelle should partner Eder in a 3-5-2 on June 13.
