Wolves have slapped in a bid with Juventus for the signature of Chelsea and Newcastle United linked defender Rogerio.

The Brazilian has been at Sassuolo since 2017 on a two-year loan deal from Juventus, but his spell at the club could be coming to an end.

Rogerio has managed to attract the interest of several clubs in Europe with his performances, with a number of Premier League sides keen.

Chelsea and Newcastle have been linked with having an interest in the defender, but Wolves are the ones who have been putting down  the building blocks for a January swoop.

The west Midlands club have been in talks with Juventus over a deal, and according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, an official offer has been sent to the Italian champions via agent Jorge Mendes.

It has been claimed that Wolves have placed a bid of around €18m on Juventus’ table in order to get their hands on Rogerio in January.

Juventus are studying the offer carefully and it has been claimed that a deal could be on the cards as it would mean a huge profit for the club from the player.

The Italian champions have been prepared to recall him from Sassuolo this month and sell him if they receive the right kind of offer.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea or Newcastle now lodge their own offers.
