Wolves’ forgotten man Patrick Cutrone is entering the final year of his contract with the Premier League club and the striker’s agent Federico Pastorello tells La Republicca that a ‘solution’ must be found. 

In the summer of 2019, two of the most exciting young strikers in Europe – let alone Serie A – completed big-money moves to England. 

Three years on, it’s fair to say neither Moise Kean nor Patrick Cutrone have lived up to those early expectations. Or, for that matter, their expensive price-tags.

Both Kean and Cutrone returned to Italy on loan last summer in a desperate attempt to jump-start their stalling careers. But, like the former at Juventus, the latter is struggling to recapture the magic of 2019, scoring just twice in 26 league games while falling behind Andrea Pinamonti in Empoli’s pecking order. 

“Unfortunately, during the season, it became clear that Pinamonti and Cutrone, who are very close friends, do not complement each other in terms of characteristics,” explains Pastorello. “The coach realised this.”  

Wolves will sell Patrick Cutrone

During 63 games on loan at Valencia, Fiorentina and Empoli, Cutrone has scored just six league goals.

And, with the former AC Milan number nine entering the final 12 months of his contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers, the men from Molineux look certain to make a substantial loss on a player they spent £23 million on following a pair of impressive breakthrough campaigns at the San Siro.

“Now, we have to find a solution for Patrick, no longer on loan because we are finally entering the last year with Wolverhampton,” Pastorello adds.  

Cutrone’s long-awaited farewell is unlikely to trigger many tears in the Black Country. Especially with Wolves fans more concerned about the potential departures of several key players. 

Ruben Neves has held initial talks with Barcelona, per The Athletic. Joao Moutinho and Romain Saiss are both out of contract. 

Veteran defender Marcal, meanwhile, has agreed a return to Brazil with newly-promoted Botafogo.
