Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Patrick Cutrone is wanted by two European clubs, according to Sky Sports (via Goal).
The report named La Liga outfit Villarreal, who are looking into the possibility of a loan move, and Serie A club Sampdoria as potential suitors.
Cutrone has already had two loan spells away from Molineux, going to Fiorentina in January 2020 and Valencia in the early months of this year.
Cutrone’s Wolves struggles
The Midlands club shelled out £16m to sign the striker from AC Milan back in 2016 after he scored 27 goals in 90 appearances for the Rossoneri (via BBC Sport). However, he has only netted three times in 28 outings for Wolves in all competitions.
Now into the final two years of his contract at Molineux, Cutrone’s estimated value has fallen to £8.1m (via Transfermarkt).
The 23-year-old has at least managed to get on the scoresheet in pre-season, bagging a late winner in a recent victory over Real Betis, but that hasn’t cut much ice judging by the responses to reports of another loan exit for the Italian.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed the update, and here’s what some supporters made of it. One fan drew unflattering comparisons with Lucas Piazon, who was loaned out seven times by Chelsea (for whom he made three senior appearances) before finally leaving for good in January of this year.
These Wolves call for permanent Cutrone exit
“Just sell the guy”
“If he’s off I think it needs to be a permanent move, not a loan and be done with it, for him as much as us!!”
“Let him go. He don’t wanna be here”
“Stop loaning the chief and just cash in”
“No wonder he looks fed up, always moved around and messed about, probably sick of it!”
“He is awful… end of…”
“Another loan? We can’t get rid of this guy, he’s actually becoming our Piazon”
