The south coast Premier League club have offered the Austrian side £11.8million for the Senegal international.

Mane, who represented his country at the 2012 London Olympics, moved to Salzburg in September of that year from French club Metz.

Last season the 22-year-old was a major figure, scoring 13 goals as Salzburg clinched the league and cup double in Austria.
