Roma are looking to sell Spanish ‘keeper Pau Lopez first and talks are underway over the double sale of Lopez and attacker Cengiz Under, who was on loan at Leicester last season, to Marseille.

Patricio’s move could advance more swiftly once Lopez departs, and now that Portugal have been knocked out of the Euros by Belgium in the last 16.


Patricio, who has been at Wolves since 2018 and has just a year left on his deal, shares an agent that Mourinho has worked closely with for many years; Jorge Mendes.

He moved to Molineux from Sporting Lisbon for £16.2m in one of a significant number of deals that Mendes has done with Wolves.
