Wolves journalist Joe Edwards has offered his thoughts on the future of Patrick Cutrone at the club.
The Italian forward, valued at £9m on Transfermarkt, hasn’t had the best of seasons in front of goal, failing to score across the 24 appearances that he has made for any of the three clubs he has played for; Wolves, Fiorentina or Valencia. Combine that with just eight goals in 45 appearances last season and he doesn’t exactly scream ‘goal machine’.
And speaking on the E&S Wolves Podcast (36:11), Edwards, whilst talking about who the club might be looking to sell this summer, felt that because of his poor return over the past few years, the club might be forced to sell him for a lot less than what they initially paid for him in the summer of 2019:
“Cutrone’s career has stalled. You know, I don’t think there’d be many clubs, you know, willing to splash £15-16m or what Wolves paid on Cutrone on him at the minute, because he hasn’t got that gold record behind him over the last few months… they might have to take a significant hit on Cutrone”
Should Wolves let Cutrone leave?
TIF Thoughts on Joe Edwards’ comments about Patrick Cutrone…
Edwards seems convinced that the club looks set to move on from Cutrone, and based on his previous seasons it’s easy to see why. If they had hoped that sending him out on loan would develop him to try and compete with someone like Raul Jimenez when he came back to the club it clearly hasn’t worked.
Sometimes you just have to accept that you’ve made a mistake and move on from it rather than trying to make it work and just driving his value down even further. Then you end up selling him for peanuts or even worse losing him for nothing.
