Roma and Wolves have already done business this summer, with Rui Patricio moving to the Italian capital.
Amadou Diawara reportedly could have gone the other way but it didn’t happen.
Now the two clubs’ transfer business is apparently connected again, if reports in Italy are to be believed.
Calcio Mercato claim that Jose Mourinho wants Roma to sign Leander Dendoncker to bolster his midfield.
The two-time Champions League winner apparently won’t get his man unless Roma make sales, however.
The report claims that Dendoncker would cost 25 million euros (£21.25 million).
That would be a significant amount towards Wolves’ summer rebuild, but it would also rob them of a player who can play at centre-half and in central midfield.
In his first interview with club media, Bruno Lage said Dendoncker is one of three Wolves players he wants to get to know better.
How good is Dendoncker?
In April, we wrote a piece where some Wolves fans on Twitter said they’d be open to selling Dendoncker after a run of poor form.
That said, he seems to be rated by his managers.
In October, Belgium boss Roberto Martinez called Dendoncker ‘really special’ after an international clash with Ivory Coast.
In February, Nuno Espirito Santo said he’s ‘amazing’ and praised his professionalism as well.
It seems a bid won’t be coming from Italy unless they make sales anyway, so it’s pure speculation for now.
