It's fair to say that the transfer window is hotting up and the big boys in the Premier League are starting to change the dynamic of their squads ahead of the 2016/17 season.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp recruited wide-man Sadio Mane from Southampton on Tuesday in a high-profile deal worth as much as £34 million.
Mane, 24, is one of the most exciting attacking players in the Premier League, but he has yet to truly establish himself as a consistent player.

Reds chief Klopp certainly appears to be happy with the deal, however, and duly admitted that he had been following the player for years.
He stated, as per ESPN: "I have followed Sadio for a lot of years since his impressive performances in the Olympics in 2012, and then watched his development in Austria and in his time at Southampton.

Mane to Liverpool
"Since I came here I have spoken to the staff a lot about him and have always felt he could be a very good signing for us. He has a lot of quality, works hard and has a very good goal scoring record.
"When I spoke to him I could tell that he was passionate about joining the club and playing for our fantastic fans. I think they will be just as excited about seeing him put on a Liverpool shirt as I am.
"It is great that we have managed to sign him so he can work with us from the first day of pre-season."
Why, then, are Liverpool fans not thrilled with the transfer? Well, one reason could be that rivals Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Borussia Dortmund ace Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
It's expected that the Red Devils will secure the services of the 27-year-old for £26.3m. That would, of course, represent a lower fee than the one Liverpool paid Saints for Mane. Ultimately, that hasn't gone down too well with supporters of the Anfield club.
While Mane may well prove a fine coup for the Merseyside outfit, many see Dortmund star Mkhitaryan as an upgrade. As you can see by the tweets below, fans of both United and Liverpool certainly agree with that notion.
Here are the best tweets:
It must be noted, however, that the Red Devils are yet to get the Mkhitaryan deal over the line, so they could yet fail in their bid to bring him to Manchester. If that did happen, it's likely that Liverpool fans would once again take to social media, but they would probably have slightly different views.
