One name which was mentioned by the transfer insider was that of Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Rui Patricio.
Will Rui Patricio prove a big miss at Wolves?
Romano revealed a potential deal for the 33-year-old is edging closer to completion and could be announced before the end of the week.
Discussing the details of a possible deal for the Wolves goalkeeper, Romano had the following to say on the matter.
“And also they are going to sign their first new player, [who] will be Rui Patricio from Wolverhampton.
“So Rui Patricio will be joining Roma in the coming days for around €10m with add-ons from Wolverhampton, but it’s almost a done deal.”
TIF Thoughts on Patricio’s potential move…
Patricio is now 33 years old and it could be seen as his last shot at a ‘big’ move away from the Premier League side.
The £9m-rated goalkeeper has been at Molineux for three years after joining in 2018 from Sporting in a deal believed to be worth in the region of £16.2m and has racked up 127 appearances in that time (via Transfermarkt).
A possible move for Patricio will leave Wolves looking for a new first-choice goalkeeper, however, they have already been linked with a potential summer swoop for England and Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
