Paris Saint-Germain have also shown interest in the midfielder and will probably be the first club to submit a bid. But Liverpool re-entering the race, even after cooling their interest previously, will definitely make things more complex.

The Merseyside giants have already started their expedition to rebuild their midfield with potential signings of Alexis Mac Allister, Mason Mount, and others. The signing of Ugarte will strengthen the midfield defensively.

The Uruguayan is a no-nonsense, hard-tackling defensive midfielder who doesn’t hesitate to go in for challenges to defend his half. He will be a competitor & a possible replacement for Fabinho.

Now, the board members have apparently left the decision up to Klopp. He will decide if he needs the midfielder for his style of play and the team.

Moreover, according to reports, Ugarte will prefer English teams over PSG. Chelsea are the front-runners for the Uruguayan, the coming weeks will be crucial for this saga.
