Fans of Wolverhampton Wanderers have reacted to quotes from Patrick Cutrone following his first goal for Fiorentina.
On Thursday, Joe Edwards was on hand to relay quotes from the Italian after he opened his account for his new club and said being with the Old Gold was ‘a great experience’, which had Wolves fans wishing him the best.

No grudges over Wolves spell. Thankful for it.
"At Wolves it was a great experience, I learned many things, in training I learned a lot. It was a new culture, I grew as a man and as a player." #wwfc

After seeing him in the changing room singing yday on Fiorentinas Instagram it shows he just loves his football. Hope he bangs loads in for them and fires them into Europe….we play them in Europa and give him a hero’s welcome!

Are Wolves most desperate to sign a striker in this transfer window?
During his time with the Old Gold, the 22-year-old forward scored three goals and assisted four in 25 games under Nuno Espirito Santo (per Transfermarkt).
With the goal on his Serie A return debut (per Express and Star), Wolves fans were left to rue the fact that the club had let Cutrone go without having a deal for a replacement sub striker in place.
God knows why we sold him without a replacement. Wish you luck, Patrick.

Surprised we sold him without a direct replacement?????but hopefully we one incoming by the end of the month?he’s a good lad with a good personality & clearly playing back in Italy suits him best so wish him the best of luck in the future!!

Damn! I think we’ll regret letting him go. He didn’t really get a chance, but he should have been more patient, too.

What do we think?
Due to the departures of Cutrone and of Rafa Mir to SD Huesca (via Daily Mail), Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad is incredibly short in the striking position, with Raul Jimenez as the only out-and-out option (per Transfermarkt).
If the Old Gold are to continue their chase in the Premier League and the Europa League, then bringing in a new striker will be essential for the Molineux club due to their apparent lack of cover in the squad.
