Wolves boost as out-of-favour striker set for permanent exit

The Midlands club are set to ship out a forgotten member of their ranks over the days ahead


Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers are in line for an imminent funds boost, according to reports.

The player on the books at Molineux primed for a departure? Patrick Cutrone.

Hitman Cutrone, of course, arrived in England’s Midlands back in the summer of 2019, amid hefty expectations after breaking through in impressive fashion at AC Milan.

To say that his ensuing Wolves stint has proven underwhelming, though, would be something of an understatement.

All told, interspersed with a trio of loan stints away from the club, Cutrone racked up a paltry 14 Premier League appearances, notching a pair of goals in the process.

On the back of a less than prolific spell with Empoli last season, the powers that be at Molineux were therefore no doubt concerned when it came to their chances of moving the out-of-favour attacker on once more this summer.

But, as alluded to above, on Thursday, Wolves’ prayers have been answered.

As per a report from Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, Cutrone is on the verge of bringing a definitive end to his spell in England.

This comes after Serie B outfit Como agreed to purchase the 24-year-old on a permanent basis, for an undisclosed fee.

Cutrone, in turn, is set to put pen to paper on a three-year contract at the Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia, joining Cesc Fabregas as the 2nd high-profile addition to Como’s ranks this summer.
