It appears that the Rui Patricio to AS Roma saga is nearly over, Wolverhampton Wanderers fans.

Named a target for José Mourinho in Italy the day after he was announced as their new manager, the goalkeeper never left the column inches, with the move now nearing its completion.

Corriere dello Sport dedicate an article to the matter on Monday, claiming the player will ‘probably be in Rome for the medicals tomorrow’.

The two clubs just need to ‘exchange documents’ for the player, currently on holiday in Mallorca, ‘to travel’ to Italy in order to complete his move.

Having already agreed to a contract with the Serie A side, the Wolves player looks like he will be putting an end to a three-year relationship with the Premier League side following a £16.2m transfer from Sporting CP in 2018.

With Pau Lopez heading to Marseille, the move ‘can be made official’, and it’s said that Patricio ‘cannot wait’ to team up with his new squad, which is becoming more and more Portuguese.

This is corroborated by Corriere della Sera, who go as far as saying he could arrive in the capital ‘in the next few hours’, although we all know that isn’t really specific when it comes to transfer talk.

During his time at Wolverhampton, the goalkeeper made 127 appearances for the club, conceding 151 goals and keeping 37 clean sheets.
