Wolverhampton Wanderers are considering a move for Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini as a replacement for Rui Patricio.

That’s according to L’Eco di Bergamo, relayed by CalcioAtalanta, who say the Portuguese goalkeeper’s exit could be confirmed today.

Patricio has been linked with a move to Roma for the last few weeks, with it believed Jose Mourinho is keen to add him to his new squad.

A deal appears to be in place, with Wolves willing to sanction a deal and Patricio pushing for the move to Italy.

Should he depart as expected, then a replacement will be needed, and it appears the latest name on the list is Gollini’s.

He looks set to leave Atalanta this summer after they spent €20m to bring in Juan Musso to the club, and it’s felt that deal will ‘inevitably lead to a transfer’ for someone, and Gollini is the ‘first suspect’.

He’s been linked with a move to Everton, but now L’Eco di Bergamo say that Wolves are ‘interested’ in him as well.

There is no mention of any form of negotiations at his moment in time, just that the Italian is a player that they are looking at.

Any move would be a return to England for Gollini, who spent a part of his youth training at Manchester United and played a season with Aston Villa before being bought by Atalanta.
