FIFA has confirmed an investigation is underway after Sporting CP complained about Rui Patricio's transfer to Premier League new boys Wolves.

The Portugal international signed a four-year deal at Molineux last month after terminating his Sporting contract in the aftermath of an attack by a section of the club's supporters following their failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Sporting, who have opened legal proceedings against Patricio and six other players, remain angry at the free transfer, and have written to FIFA to demand compensation.

Arsenal to miss out on free transfer with Atletico in talks to seal a deal

  Arsenal to miss out on free transfer with Atletico in talks to seal a deal Arsenal look set to miss out on the signature of Gelson Martins, with Atletico Madrid now leading the race to sign the player. Mundo Deportivo claims that the Spanish side have held talks over a deal and remain in discussions with Sporting for the player. Martins is one of many players to rescind their contracts with the Portuguese club, meaning he is available for nothing this summer. The report claims that Atletico are still in talks with Sporting over a deal, in a similar reason to why Wolves discussed a transfer fee for Rui Patricio. The club want to avoid any potential legal claims that Sporting could file for in the future and want the deal to go through on good terms. However, the player’s availability has alerted the likes of Atletico Madrid and Arsenal, with the latter being heavily linked with a move for the Portuguese international. Arsenal was reportedly the player’s preferred destination, but now Atletico appear to be leading the race to sign him.

Sporting CP have demanded that Premier League new boys pay them £48million for Rui Patricio following a complaint to FIFA this week. Sporting have actually done it, claiming €54.7m in compensation.

Football's governing body verified receipt of the dossier from Sporting and advised a full investigation was now underway.

"We can confirm that we have received a complaint from Sporting Clube de Portugal against Wolverhampton Wanders and the player [Patricio]," a FIFA spokesperson told Omnisport.

"As the contractual dispute is currently under investigation, please understand that no further comment can be made at this stage."

When contacted by Omnisport, Wolves declined to comment on the case.

Roma join Chelsea in race for Mertens .
Italian giants Roma have joined Chelsea in the race to sign Napoli forward Dries Mertens this summer. According to Calcio Mercato, Roma are now showing an interest in Mertens and could now challenge Chelsea for his signature. The report claims, however, claims that Roma will only make a move for Mertens once they sell Alisson. Chelsea are thought to have agreed a deal to sign the Brazilian goalkeeper from Roma, with a decision expected after the World Cup. Mertens has a €28m release clause in his Napoli contract, which can only be activated by teams outside of Italy, given Chelsea an edge over Roma. The forward is currently in Russia playing his part for Belgium in the World Cup, meaning Chelsea may have to wait until after the tournament to seal a deal. The 31-year-old scored 22 goals last season, after scoring 34 in all competitions in the 2016/17 campaign.
