The agent of Wolverhampton Wanderers Patrick Cutrone has claimed that his client has “gone into oblivion” at Fiorentina.
Cutrone caught in the headlights
The 22-year-old went on loan to Italy from Nuno Espirito Santo’s side after scoring just three goals from his first 24 appearances, accumulating just 860 minutes of game time (TransferMarkt).
Despite this, the Italian striker has yet to start a game for La Viola and has only managed to register an average of 0.4 shots per game with an average match rating of 5.98 (Whoscored).
In a similar career path to Everton’s Moise Kean, Cutrone has not had the same effect with his club as his fellow countryman has had at Paris Saint-Germain.
“Cutrone was strongly wanted by Fiorentina, (the move) was a great satisfaction for the club and for the player. For one reason or another, he, has now gone into oblivion,” he said.
“I would have liked him to be treated like the others, which didn’t happen.
“(Fiorentina) has never expressed any kind of reservation about him, recognizing his seriousness and availability. (But) an attacker needs a bit of continuity and morale.”
Transfer Tavern Verdict
Cutrone, who earns £60k-a-week at the West Midlands outfit (Spotrac), is having a tough time which will obviously throw his Molineux exit into doubt.
However, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side having only scored nine goals from their first nine Premier League games (BBC Sport), perhaps he could be the man to come back in from ‘oblivion’ and make his mark with his parent club.
Time will tell what Jorge Mendes and his team decide to do with him. But if his form maintains in Serie A, he will soon be sent back to Molineux with his tail between his legs.
