Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Patrick Cutrone has hinted he is ready to end his stint at Molineux.
The Italian is currently on loan at La Liga side Valencia, after briefly returning to his parent club in January following a spell with Fiorentina.
The 23-year-old was recalled early to help provide cover, and also due to not getting much game time in Italy.
He made four appearances for Wolves, only one of which was a start against Chorley in the FA Cup.
Some fans have not been happy with the way the former AC Milan star has been treated, and his latest comments may well suggest he hasn’t been entirely happy either.
He told Diario AS: “It’s my goal [to stay at Valencia]. I want to do well on the pitch to be able to stay, that’s what I want. As soon as I heard about their interest, I said yes.
“Nuno also spoke to me about how great the club is, and I know the importance of Valencia. I’ll give everything to stay here.”
Cutrone has so far made just the one appearances for Los Che – a 25-minute cameo against Athletic Bilbao.
It’s probably time to go
£16 million signing Cutrone (BBC Sport) just hasn’t convinced during his time as a Wolves player.
He probably could have been given more opportunities by Nuno Espirito Santo, but the arrival of Willian Jose definitely complicates matters for him and obviously Raul Jimenez will be coming back after his awful head injury.
Maybe his treatment could have been better, but it unfortunately just hasn’t worked out.
He certainly seems to have his heart set on staying in Spain judging by his comments and it’s hard to see Wolves officials fighting to keep him.
