Moussa Djenepo has passed his medical with Southampton and joined up with the Mali squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.
The 20-year-old winger is expected to be confirmed as a Saints player next week, pending a work permit.
Southampton agreed a deal that could rise to £15m after performance-related bonuses with Standard Liege earlier this week.
Djenepo scored seven goals and managed three assists in 25 league appearances for Liege this season, and also managed three in five Europa League games.
He has eight caps and has scored one goal for his country since his senior debut in October 2017.
Djenepo will be Ralph Hassenhuttl's first permanent signing since he took over from Mark Hughes at St Mary's in December 2018.
The Austrian has previously said Southampton face a "difficult summer" with limited funds to use in the transfer market.
