Wolves are reportedly hoping to sell Patrick Cutrone this summer.
The striker is not Bruno Lage’s plans for the upcoming season, after an underwhelming loan spell with Empoli.
The 24-year-old was with the Serie A club for 2021/22 and the hope was that he could rediscover his mojo.
But Cutrone scored just three goals in 31 games.
According to the Express & Star, the club are now hoping to sell him.
Apparently, there is interest from teams in Turkey. And Primo Canale have claimed that Genoa are interested in a move.
But there haven’t been any offers yet.
It is stated that Cutrone could also leave on loan again if not suitable permanent bids come in.
And he could play a part in pre-season, as was the case last year.
So it seems Bruno Lage does not see him as a viable option for 2022/23, which probably increases the likelihood of the club going out and signing a striker this summer.
Wolves paid AC Milan £16 million in 2019 to sign Cutrone (BBC Sport).
It is certain that the club will need to take a big hit on that initial investment if they are to offload him this summer.
Wolves should look to sell Patrick Cutrone quickly, amid interest from Geno
Wolves should be looking to make a quick sale on Cutrone.
The club need to accept that they will be taking a big hit on the striker after his struggles in recent times.
At this point, it is better to just bring in a small fee for him and get him off the wage bill.
The money can then be reinvested in the squad.
But as Wolves fans are finding out, the club doing transfer-related things quickly might be wishful thinking.
