Journalist Joe Edwards has recently discussed the situation of Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Patrick Cutrone.
Edwards appeared as a guest on the latest episode of the E&S Wolves podcast and the panel discussed multiple issues involving Nuno Santo’s side. One player that they focused on was Patrick Cutrone and whether Espirito Santo has plans to give him more first-team football. Edwards revealed that Cutrone is currently living at a hotel and Wolves haven’t given him a permanent base yet.
Should Wolves loan out Cutrone again?
Cutrone had left Wolves to join Fiorentina on a loan deal last January but the Italian has now returned to his parent club already. At the Stadio Artemio Franchi, the 23-year-old made 34 appearances in all competitions and scored five goals, picking up three assists for La Viola. He is currently valued at £10.8m.
Edwards discussed Cutrone’s situation and he believes that giving him first-team football would have been a big ask for Wolves and the player.
He said: “He’s only just come back, it was 12 sub appearances this season in Serie A, but when you tally that together, I think it was the equivalent of two games. He’s essentially played about 180 minutes of football.
“Nuno alluded to it a little bit last week, actually, in that he’s here on his own at the minute. They haven’t got him a kind of a more permanent base yet. I think he’s possibly living out of a hotel room at the minute. So, there’s that kind of stuff to factor in. To have brought him back in and chucked him straight into the starting line-up I think would’ve been a big ask, anyway.”
TIF Thoughts on Edwards’ comments on Cutrone…
Having said that, Wolves have been linked with a move for Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose and they are trying to sign him on a loan deal. This shows that Santo wants more strikers in the team to make up for Raul Jimenez’s absence.
Cutrone has also been linked with a move to Parma in recent days. So it won’t be a surprise if Wolves end up signing Willian Jose and Cutrone ends up leaving the club once again this month.
