Ian Wright has singled out Liverpool forward Sadio Mane as the Arsenal legend’s signing of the season.

The Senegal international was one of seven new arrivals at the Merseyside club in the summer transfer window as manager Jurgen Klopp looked to give his Reds squad a revamp following an eighth-place finish last term.

Mane has wasted no time having a telling impact on Liverpool’s performance after a return of three goals and one assist in the Merseyside outfit’s opening seven Premier League games of the 2016-17 season.

The African winger has scored against top-four rivals, defending Premier League champions Leicester City and promoted side Hull City – as well as terrorising the league’s best defence Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

And former Arsenal striker Wright says Mane has been his signing of the season so far after a series of eye-catching performances in Klopp’s Liverpool side.

Asked to name the standout summer signing on BT Sport’s Premier League tonight show, Wright said: “I’d go with Mane.​ I like Mane.”
