AC Milan’s Patrick Cutrone & Wolves
As confirmed by reporter Tim Spiers, Wolves are “hopeful” of signing AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone.
The 21-year-old attacker is under contract at the San Siro until 2023.
Cutrone, who grew up in AC Milan’s academy, scored three goals in 34 Serie A appearances last season.
In total, Cutrone scored nine goals in 43 matches for Milan in 2018-19.
Wolves, who have been linked with a raft of strikers this summer, have reportedly picked up “pace” in the race to sign Cutrone.
I gather Wolves are still hopeful of wrapping up the signing of AC Milan and Italy striker Patrick Cutrone as they look to bring in some quality first-team additions. Things are starting to pick up pace now #wwfc
