(REUTERS) - Southampton's Senegalese striker Sadio Mane will undergo a medical at Liverpool on Monday after the clubs agreed a £30 million (S$54.3 million) transfer, the British media reported.

The 24-year-old is expected to sign in the next couple of days if personal terms are agreed.

Mane joined Southampton for US$15.8 million (S$21.4 million) from Red Bull Saltzburg two years ago and has scored 11 goals in 37 Premier League appearances, including two against Liverpool in a dramatic 3-2 win at St Mary's on March 20.

He is set to become Liverpool's fourth signing of the summer after Joel Matip joined on a free transfer from Schalke, Marko Grujic left Red Star Belgrade, and goalkeeper Loris Karius was imported from Mainz.

The Mane deal, if it materialises, would mean Southampton have received US$122.6 million in transfer fees from Liverpool over the past three summers following similar moves by Adam Lallana (US$33.5 million), Dejan Lovren (US$26.8 million), Nathaniel Clyne (US$16.7 million) and Rickie Lambert (US$5.3 million).
