Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain have now submitted a big offer to Sporting Lisbon for rumoured Tottenham target Manuel Ugarte.

Ugarte appears to be one of the hottest properties on the market this summer, with multiple publications revealing over recent months that Tottenham are one of the clubs who are eyeing a move for the midfielder (O Jogo via Sport Witness).

Until this week, it seemed as though Tottenham’s main competition for the Uruguayan could come from Liverpool (Record) but the situation appears to have changed over the last couple of days.

Fabrizio Romano revealed on Thursday that PSG had entered the race for Ugarte’s signature and that they had already reached out to the midfielder’s entourage regarding a switch to Paris.

The same journalist later named Chelsea and Pochettino as fellow fans of the midfielder.

Aouna has now taken to social media to reveal that the Ligue 1 giants have submitted an offer of €60m (£52.6m) for the 22-year-old.

The journalist added that Chelsea and Newcastle United have also informed Sporting that they would be prepared to pay a similar amount for the midfielder.

Ugarte appears to be one of a long list of players who Tottenham are seemingly set to miss out on because of their inability to quickly sort out their sporting director and managerial situation.

The longer we wait to make those appointments, the harder it is going to be to have a productive summer transfer window.
