Liverpool are prepared to meet the release clause of Uruguay international

This summer, Liverpool is reportedly in the lead to sign talented midfielder Manuel Ugarte.

The Sporting midfielder is reported to be on the radar of numerous European clubs.

Following the club’s decision to withdraw from the race to sign Jude Bellingham and instead spend money on multiple players, Jürgen Klopp is desperate to improve his midfield options in the upcoming transfer window.

According to the Portuguese publication Record, Liverpool is getting ready to speak with Sporting Lisbon’s Ugarte in an effort to beat out rivals like Manchester United for his services.

Ugarte’s contract has a £52 million release clause, and although manager Ruben Amorim wants to keep him, Sporting are reportedly open to talks if the price is met.

The Uruguay international would be one of many players Liverpool hope to sign as they get ready for a summer of change.

While Thiago and Jordan Henderson are both approaching the end of their careers, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita all appear destined for the exit.

Ugarte is regarded as a player who can be crucial to the team in the long run and would be brought in to play the number eight position if signed.

The club have also been linked to Alexis Mac Allister, Moises Caicedo, Mason Mount and Conor Gallagher of Chelsea, Ryan Gravenberch of Bayern Munich, and Nicolo Barella of Inter Milan.
