Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Patrick Cutrone will no doubt be glad to see the back of 2020/21.
The 23-year-old started the campaign on loan at Fiorentina, where he’d been since last season, but was recalled by Wolves in January.
He played a handful of games in the absence of Raul Jimenez, before the club went and landed Willian Jose on loan from Real Sociedad.
The decision was then taken to send him to Valencia on loan – and it’s turned out to be a waste of time for the player.
He’s only made seven appearances for the club so far, all of those coming as a substitute.
He has never featured for more than 25 minutes, and he now hasn’t made any of Javi Gracia’s last three matchday squads.
A report from Super Deporte has claimed that ‘something is up’ with Cutrone.
The publication say he actually wants to stay at the Mestalla beyond the terms of his current loan.
But that doesn’t seem particularly likely at the moment.
Cutrone deserves better
His move to Valencia in January felt very out of the blue, and it clear isn’t the right move for him.
That much is obvious given how little he has been used since moving there.
It’s a real shame for Cutrone, who also struggled for minutes at Fiorentina at the start of the season.
It is not nice to see him constantly being overlooked by people, and hopefully he and his agent can arrange a new move this summer where he can go and rebuild his career.
