AS Roma’s interest in Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Rui Patrício has been repeatedly cited in the Italian media over the past week or so.
On Tuesday, O Jogo reported the Serie A side are trying to convince Wolves, as there’s still a €5m difference between the offer made by the Giallorossi and the demand set by the English club, and there seems to be some progress with regards to the negotiations between the two clubs if Calciomercato.it‘s latest report is to be believed.
It’s claimed José Mourinho’s side are ‘about to get their hands’ on the goalkeeper, with the ‘agreement being finalised’ between the Premier League side and Roma.
The two clubs are in ‘constant contact’ to close the deal, and Roma are ‘ready to pay around €10m’ plus bonuses for the keeper.
There’s already an agreement in place between the Italian capital club and the Portugal international.
With Wolves and Roma now finalising the agreement for the transfer, a ‘few more hours of patience’ is needed for Mourinho to welcome Patrício to the club.
Sky Italia also explain the Roma are ‘closing in on the purchase’ of the 33-year-old as the negotiations are in the ‘final stages’.
Mourinho’s side have plans to seal the deal in the next few days, ‘perhaps as early as this midweek’.
