Speaking on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano discussed the future of Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-forward, Patrick Cutrone.
Since arriving at Wolves from AC Milan in what was a £19.8 million deal back in the summer of 2019, Cutrone has made just 28 appearances for the club, chipping in with three goals and providing four assists along the way.
And, after just half a season at the club, Wolves loaned Cutrone out to Serie A side Fiorentina – where the £10.8 million-rated man managed just five goals and provided three assists over 34 appearances – in what was originally agreed as a temporary two-year deal.
However, following a potentially season-ending injury to Raul Jimenez, Nuno Espirito Santo decided to recall the Italy U21 international from his loan six months early in order to provide greater depth to his attacking options.
Although, following the arrival of Willian Jose from Real Sociedad, it would now appear that Cutrone is once again surplus to requirements at Wolves, with Udinese reported to be keen on a move for the 23-year-old.
And, the future of Cutrone was one subject of discussion on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, in which Romano confirmed that the Italian is indeed free to leave Wolverhampton this month.
He said: “Yes, it’s possible. He’s available. He’s available on the market. Wolves are open to [letting] him [leave] on loan. Is he going back to Serie A? The answer is yes – because Udinese and Parma are fighting for a new striker. Cutrone is on the list for Parma and Udinese and he’s going to leave Wolves after Willian Jose signed as the new striker.”
Should Wolves let Cutrone leave?
TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Patrick Cutrone…
So, if Romano is to be believed, despite having only returned to the club earlier this month, Cutrone could well be on his way back out of the door at Wolves prior to the closure of the transfer window on February 2.
And, considering he failed to score over the four appearances he made in what looks likely to be a brief stint back at Wolves this season, one fixture of which was against lower-league Chorley, in our opinion, perhaps it is for the best that the striker does move on to pastures new sooner rather than later.
