Jose Mourinho wants to bring Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Leander Dendoncker to Roma, according to a report from Calciomercato.
Roma have already signed a player from Wolves this summer. Rui Patricio swapped the Midlands for the Italian capital last month.
And now it seems as though Dendoncker could be set to follow him.
The 26-year-old ace initially joined the Black Country outfit from Anderlecht on loan in the summer of 2018.
His move was then made permanent the following year for around £12 million.
Dendoncker made a fine start to life at Molineux. However, he has gone off the boil over the past 18 months or so.
Jose Mourinho wants Wolves ace at Roma
Calciomercato claims that the Portuguese is desperate to strengthen his central midfield ranks at the Stadio Olimpico.
Much will depend on how much Bruno Lage needs to bolster his summer transfer budget.
If Wolves lose Ruben Neves this summer, they really can’t afford to lose Dendoncker as well.
If Roma come in with a big offer for the former Anderlecht man, it may well be difficult for the Black Country outfit to turn down.
At 26, the defensive midfielder, who can also play in the centre-back position, still has plenty of time to improve at Molineux.
He really is the kind of player Lage should be keeping around.
Conor Coady once described the Belgian ace as a ‘brilliant’ player.
The Wolves fans know how good the Belgian is. Surely Lage does as well.
Roma boss Mourinho may have his work cut out in signing Dendoncker this summer.
