Wolves could lose two of their high profile summer acquisitions in January after neither got the playing time they would have expected.

The additions of Jesus Vallejo from Real Madrid and Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan were both seen as coups by the Molineux outfit, who have made a strong start to the season while balancing Premier League action with the Europa League.

However, it has not been plain sailing for every member of their squad, with both Vallejo and Cutrone struggling for gametime.

According to AS, Real Madrid are contemplating cutting Vallejo’s loan short in order to send him somewhere he would play more – with Eintracht Frankfurt and Leganes two of the sides said to be interested in hijacking the deal.

Meanwhile, Sky Sport Italia claim that Cutrone – who signed a four-year contract when joining from Milan – is set to leave Wolves for a quick return to Italy, with Fiorentina ready to capitalise on his struggles.

The young striker missed Wolves’ defeat to Liverpool due to illness, and it is believed Fiorentina want to sign him on loan with an option to buy for around €15m.

Vallejo has made just two league appearances for Wolves, absent since October, while Cutrone has scored three goals for the club, having only made eight starts in all competitions.
