Sadio joins on a five-year deal and is Liverpool’s third summer signing after German goalkeeper Loris Karius and Cameroon defender Joel Matip.
The 24-year-old Senegal striker’s fee could rise to £36m, eclipsing the £35m paid in 2011 for Andy Carroll, the Reds’ most expensive signing.
Sadio Mane scored 21 goals in 67 Premier League appearances for Saints after joining for £10m from Salzburg in 2014. “Today is a big day and I am very happy to sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe,” he told the club’s official website.
However, Benteke – a £32.5m signing from Aston Villa last summer, has said he will consider leaving if manager Jurgen Klopp continues to leave him out next season.
