Wolverhampton Wanderers should cut their losses with Patrick Cutrone after comments made to his followers on Instagram Live were relayed by Fiorentina.it.
As per the outlet (via Sport Witness), Cutrone ‘jumped’ at the chance to leave the Midlands club just a few months after signing for them from Italian giants AC Milan for €18m (roughly £16.2m) in July 2019. The 22-year-old also admitted that, as soon as he heard interest from Fiorentina about signing him in the January transfer window, he ‘immediately said yes’ before going back to Italy on loan.
Judging by these comments, one may conclude that Cutrone’s heart is not entirely set on Wolves ang Nuno Espirito Santo’s team should seriously consider cutting their losses when his loan deal expires.
Would you cut your losses on Cutrone?
Indeed, for a striker that cost £16.2m, to be sent out on loan just a few months after joining is not a good sign – Cutrone unfortunately fail to impress during his short spell in the west Midlands.
In 24 appearances in all competitions in this season, the centre-forward scored just three goals and supplied a mere four assists, according to Transfermarkt. It was his debut campaign in England, having spent three seasons playing for Milan, where he netted 27 times and produced eight assists in 90 games in all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
Perhaps playing in Italy better suits Cutrone, judging by his performances in both his home country and in England, and Wolves may be wise to negotiate a permanent transfer to Fiorentina once his current deal expires.
Wolves fans, do you think Cutrone needs more time to prove himself or should the club just offload him as soon as they can? Comment below with your views!
