Wolves in talks for £23m Serie A striker ahead of European campaign

Date published: Friday 19th July 2019 2:34

Wolves have entered talks with AC Milan over the future of striker Patrick Cutrone, according to reports.

The Italian striker came through the youth ranks at the Serie A club, but only managed nine goals in all competitions last season – half the tally he managed the year before.

Milan need to sell some players to balance the books, with Angel Correa tipped to arrive from Atletico Madrid in a €55m deal, and according to Sky Sports, Cutrone could be on his way to England as a result.

The 21-year-old has been pushed down the pecking order at San Siro since the arrival of Krzysztof Piatek in January, and it is claimed that his club are open to selling him for a fee of around £23m.

Nuno Espirito Santo is in need of depth in the attacking department ahead of a campaign that will see Wolves balance domestic action with the Europa League. The boss currently has few alternatives to Diogo Jota and record signing Raul Jimenez in his squad, but Cutrone – who has previously been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Torino – would certainly help ease the burden on the duo.

Of the 27 career goals that Cutrone has scored for Milan, 10 have come in the Europa League.
