Successfully playing for Wolverhampton since summer 2018, after a whole and successful career spent into the ranks of his home club, Sporting Lisbon, Portuguese international goalkeeper Rui Patricio (33), according to latest Italian news, has been targeted by AS Roma and Lazio, with both Rome-based Italian giants in search for a new regular goalie. Currently on a deal with Wolves until June 2022, Rui Patricio, while PL giants are unlikely to offer him a deal extension, is likely to be ruminating over the opportunity for a tenure into Serie A football realms, and go for what might turn out to be the last long-term plan in his career.
