Uruguayan midfielder Manuel Ugarte's agent, who is set to leave PSG, hints at a move to Liverpool Transfers

Before the start of last season, Liverpool made a major reinforcement in midfield, bringing a total of four midfielders into the squad. The average age of the team has also dropped dramatically, laying the groundwork for the Arne Slot-led era.

However, the team is not without its uncertainties. Japan midfielder Wataru Endo is already over 30 years old and 19-year-old midfielder Stefan Bajcetic has missed the last season, so it remains to be seen how far he can get his performances back.

Against this backdrop, interest in the defensive midfielder has been rumoured.

The agent of Uruguayan midfielder Manuel Ugarte, who was the subject of interest during last summer’s transfer window, has stated that he is unlikely to remain at Paris Saint-Germain and admits that Liverpool are among the numerous clubs interested.

“Liverpool? There is a lot of talk, but it is not the only club, there are others.”

“There is much talk, but I am still not sure about the club. There are many possibilities on the table,”

“It’s almost certain that he won’t stay, it’s sure he’ll leave. I believe the situation will be resolved.”

O Jogo

During his time at Sporting, he made a total of 85 appearances and proved his ability in Europe, and after a multi-club battle, he sought a place in the French capital.

Although he secured a regular place when he first joined the club, his presence gradually faded and he was rarely on the pitch in important Champions League matches.

The defensive midfielder is increasingly likely to leave Paris in a year, but will his move be to Anfield…?
