Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain have now entered the race to sign rumoured Tottenham target, Manuel Ugarte.

Ugarte has gone from strength to strength over the course of this season, having established himself as one of Sporting Lisbon’s most important players.

The 22-year-old has shone both domestically and in Europe this season and his displays have allegedly attracted interest from the Premier League.

O Jogo (29/04/23 via Sport Witness) claimed last month that Spurs are expected to push ahead with an offer for Manuel Ugarte once the club have a new head coach in place, with the midfielder said to have a release clause of €60m (£52.6m) in his current contract.

It has since emerged that Liverpool have also entered the race for the Uruguayan’s signature, with Record even claiming two weeks ago that the Reds had moved into pole position to snap up the player.

If Romano’s latest update is to be believed, Spurs might also have competition to contend with from PSG for Ugarte’s signature this summer.

The journalist took to social media to reveal that the midfielder is on the Parisian’s wishlist and that the Ligue 1 giants have already discussed the terms of a deal with Sporting.

Romano adds that PSG have also reached out to Ugarte’s camp and are now ‘well informed’ of his situation ahead of the summer transfer window. In his latest report, Romano added that Chelsea and Pochettino are now also keen on the player.

I suspect Ugarte was someone Fabio Paratici identified as a target.

So, it remains to be seen if the Uruguayan would still be featuring prominently on Tottenham’s wishlist now that the Italian is no longer at Spurs.

The North London club are unlikely to finalise any plans for the summer until a new head coach and a sporting director are in place.
