Things haven’t gone too well for Patrick Cutrone back in Italy. The 22-year-old joined ACF Fiorentina on loan in January and has fired blanks in Serie A, leading to him being dropped from the starting eleven.
Football returned in Italy on Saturday, June 20, but Cutrone only managed one minute from bench in Monday’s 1-1 draw with Brescia, so his future at the Stadio Artemio Franchi is up in the air.
Cutrone has made 10 appearances in all competitions for the Viola, scoring one goal and making one assist. The 23-year-old bagged his only goal in Fiorentina’s Coppa Italia win over Atalanta (January 15) and made his only assist in their 1-1 draw with AC Milan (February 22).
Cutrone has amassed only 405/990 minutes of playing time, so he hasn’t featured 59% of the time. The Italian’s loan deal runs until 2021 and comes with a buying option, but it’s hard to see him turning the move permanent if he can’t nail down a starting place and hit some form.
He hasn’t started in Fiorentina’s last four league games, but he still has 11 more opportunities to impress this season so there’s time to turn things around.
