Patrick Cutrone Joins Fiorentina From Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanders forward, Patrick Cutrone, has completed a switch to Italian Serie A side, Fiorentina on loan.

The former AC Millan lad who since his move to Wolvers hasn't made much impact in England, has now been shipped back to Italy to play for Fiorentina on an 18-month loan deal with an obligation to buy.

The Italian striker has returned to Serie A barely six months after leaving his boyhood club AC Milan, where he scored 13 goals in 62 appearances for Milan between 2017 and 2019.

The 22-year-old struggled to break into Nuno Espirito Santo's team throughout his time at the Molineux stadium, playing as a third option striker behind Diogo Jota and Jiminez. He started only nine times out of 24 appearances and scoring three goals across three competitions.

According to reports, the youngster has held talks about his future with the Wolves manager last week and was thereafter left out of the side's FA Cup third-round match with Manchester United, which raised rumors of his departure.

Talks between Cutrone and Fiorentina had broken down earlier this week but negotiations resumed again, and an agreement was reached on Wednesday night and the deal was officially announced on Saturday.

Fiorentina, who is currently sitting at15th place in the league, sacked coach Vincenzo Montella two days before Christmas after a string of poor results and on the back of a 4-1 home defeat to Roma, and have replaced him with Giuseppe Iachini.
