Patrick Cutrone & Ruben Dias are Wolves’ top targets – Tim Spiers

Cutrone & Wolves

Wolves had a superb return to the Premier League this past season.

Nuno Espirito Santo managed to guide his side to a 7th place finish, which, thanks to Manchester City winning both domestic cups, turned into a Europe League spot.

With Wolves now faced with more games due to their EL schedule, they would do well to invest in their squad this summer.

They have already brought in one player, Jesus Vallejo from Real Madrid, on loan.

However, Wolves also look to be eyeing a move for AC Milan forward, Patrick Cutrone.

According to Tim Spiers, writing for the Express & Star, Wolves are in advanced talks with Cutrone, with the forward having left AC Milan’s pre-season tour in order to secure a transfer away the club.

While Spiers alleges that a deal has yet to be finalised, he does claim that Wolves will pay £16m upfront for the forward, and £4m in potential add-ons.

In total, Cutrone has featured 90 times for Milan’s first-team. In those games, he has found the back of the net 27 times, and also provided seven assists.

Dias to Molineux

The same report from Spiers also states that, along with Cutrone, Benfica centre-back Ruben Dias is a top target of Wolves.

Unlike Cutrone, though, a deal for Dias has been described by Spiers as complicated.

The promising young defender is believed to be interested in a move to Wolves. But Benfica are said to be desperate to keep hold of him.

This is hardly surprising, given the talent the 22-year-old has already shown for both Benfica and Portugal.

Finally, according to Spiers, Dias is believed to have a release clause of £57m. His agent, meanwhile, is Jorge Mendes, who already has a number of clients at Wolves, such as Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota.
