Wolves’ chief scout John Marshall has responded to the rumours the midland club may go in for a midfield target they were heavily linked with over the summer, and has opened up on the slow start experienced by star striker signing Patrick Cutrone.
With a Europa League campaign to juggle, Nuno Espirito Santo elected to bring in promising Italian attacker Patrick Cutrone to offer stern competition for Raul Jimenez in the number nine position.
The 21-year-old has made 19 appearances so far for the club but starts have been in short supply for the Italian international.

“He’s doing exactly what we expected,” said Marshall.
“He is settling well, the competition is strong but he is giving his contribution. He has everything to become more and more of a protagonist in our eyes.
“And besides, he is a player much loved by the fans. On the field he always gives everything, we are happy with him.”
The Ivory Coast international’s slide down the pecking order this campaign at the San Siro had been predicted, leading to mass speculation a move to Molineux could materialise.
On the Kessie links over the summer, Marshall added: “There was an interest, but there was never a real negotiation.
“January bid? I don’t think so, we have so many players in midfield.”
