An agreement has been reached which will see Wolves’ Patrick Cutrone leave the club, according to reports in Italy.

La Nazione (via Sport Witness) report that Fiorentina could see the out of favour sign for the Tuscany club ‘in 24 hours’, which would be quite a shock to the fans of Wolves.

Allegedly, Fiorentina’s agreement with Cutrone’s representatives is presumed to be pretty much done, although the negotiations between Wanderers and Fiorentina are still in progress.

It is said that this will be an initial loan deal, though there could be a clause attached to buy him permanently from the club for ‘no more’ than £12.73m.

If Wolves can agree to those conditions then there will be nothing to stop the deal going through instantly.

La Viola reportedly have many other options available to them as they hunt a new striker for their team, however, Cutrone is the one they really want.

Sport Witness round off the story by suggesting that the Italian outlet may be taking things a bit out of hand, though it is clear that the interest is hotting up.

Do you think we should give Cutrone more time?

Yes, he is young and learning

It would be a shame to many Wolves fans if they would have to see the Italian depart as it was a bit of a coup signing the player in the summer. It’s a difficult situation for the club as with Raul Jimenez in such impressive form it is really hard to find an opportunity to give Cutrone more of a chance, especially with every game in the league and the Europa League being so important to the team.

Surprisingly Cutrone has managed to notch up 24 games in all competitions so far this campaign, although he has only played 860 minutes, meaning he averages under 36 minutes per game – so you can understand why the £16m man would be frustrated.

Despite this, he has still managed seven-goal contributions overall and is a very good replacement option for the club, so presumably, they will be doing their best to keep hold of him for the second half of the season with three competitions at stake.
