One particular player which Spiers spoke about was the Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio, amid rumours linking him with a possible switch to Roma.
Should Wolves sell Rui Patricio this summer?
Discussing where Patricio’s future with the Wanderers lies, Spiers had the following to say on the matter.
“Rui Patricio is a strange one. I’ve heard varied accounts of what’s going on there – from being told it was a done deal that he’s going to Roma a couple of weeks ago, to that now being off and him potentially staying at the club. And if Roma don’t meet their asking price, they’re more than happy to keep him.
“So there’s agents at play there, and I’m not sure Patricio would be particularly desperate to leave, but if Roma do come in with a decent fee, he’s at the age now where his value would dwindle every year.”
TIF Thoughts on Patricio’s future…
However, he is now 33 years old and his value is likely to depreciate as he gets older as Spiers suggests – so this could be an opportunity for Wolves to create some transfer funds for Bruno Lage this summer.
