According to La Nazione (h/t Sport Witness), Fiorentina could agree a deal with Wolverhampton Wanderers for Patrick Cutrone. The £62k-per-week centre-forward has struggled for form and playing time under Nuno Espirito Santo and is keen to move away from Molineux.

He’s made 24 appearances in all competition for Wolves since joining from AC Milan over the summer, scoring just three goals. Cutrone could be joining Fiorentina on a season-long loan with the option to buy (£12.8m) and La Nazione say the deal could be completed in less than 24 hours.

Do you think we should give Cutrone more time?

Yes, he is young and learning

Cutrone has found himself behind Raul Jimenez, Pedro Neto and Diogo Jota in the pecking order under Nuno. He’s racked up only 13 minutes of Premier League football since starting in Wolves’ 1-1 draw with Southampton (October 19) and can’t endure another five months of being on the periphery.

In the last two-and-a-half months, Cutrone has been an unused substitute six times and was left out of the matchday squad entirely on Sunday. If Nuno doesn’t trust him to provide cover for Jimenez, he has no future at Wolves, and a replacement will need to be lined up in January.
