A journalist has claimed that Jose Sa is Wolves’ number one target in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Patricio future uncertain
There have been various reports to suggest that the future of Rui Patricio is very much uncertain at the Midlands club.
The Portugal international is now 33 years of age, and so time is running out for the Molineux faithful to try and cash in on him while he still has some value.
Of course, if they were to let Patricio go, then they would need to find a suitable replacement, and that could well be in the form of Sa.
The Latest: Sa number one target
As per Sportime journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos, Sa is the number one target for the Wanderers in the window, and they will make an offer of between €8-10m (£6.9-8.6m) for his services.
However, the Olympiacos ace has a release clause of €15m (£12.9m), and so the Greek team may wish for WWFC to pay this if they are to land his signature.
The Verdict: Sa perfect Patricio replacement
If Patricio were to leave, then Sa would no doubt be his perfect replacement at Wolves.
Both Portuguese, the latter would have learned from Patricio playing for the national side together, and at 28, he is at a much better age in his footballing career.
Sa kept a very impressive 19 clean sheets in 44 games in total over all competitions in the 2020/21 season, including away at Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League, and conceded a mere 37 goals in the process (Transfermarkt).
Should Wolves sign Sa?
