Another day, another rumour linking Patrick Cutrone away to Italy.
According to the Twitter page @TalkingWolves (with the original report coming from Nicolo Schira), talks are still continuing between Patrick Cutrone and Fiorentina, as the Italian edges towards a move back to his home country.
The report states that La Viola have made a loan bid of €2m for the attacker, with a €16m option to buy clause.
It also states that a decision will be made by the club on Wednesday.
Despite Cutrone’s little amount of game time, he seems to have built a bit of a relationship with the fanbase, and many really don’t want to see him leave.
Lots of Wolves supporters replied to the tweet, to which there was a lot who seemed pretty unhappy about the rumours. One fan even suggested that he was going to ‘cry’, while another said ‘this wasn’t supposed to end like this’.
Others were less emotive and suggested that if Cutrone leaves, then there will be another forward coming through the door shortly due to their lack of options up front.
Here are some of the replies below…

The former AC Milan attacker hasn’t had it easy since his departure from northern Italy.
Despite making a fairly impressive 24 appearances, he has had only 860 minutes of football under his belt – averaging less than 36 minutes per match. In those games, he has had a fairly decent return of three goals and four assists – averaging a goal or assist every 129 minutes.
With him being the only obvious replacement for Raul Jimenez – apart from potentially Diogo Jota playing more centrally – then there are little back-ups if the Mexican does get injured.
Therefore, if he does leave the club, then fans should be expecting another striker for the first-team squad.
