Report claims Wolves man Cutrone is among Parma's striker targets

Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone is a transfer target for Parma in his native Italy.

According to Gazzetta di Parma, Cutrone is one of three strikers the club is considering this summer.

Parma were relegated as bottom of Serie A with just 20 points in the season just gone.

They apparently want to bolster their bid to come back up at the first time of asking with a new striker.

Cutrone is still just 23 years old and will hope to get some regular games whereever he is next season.

He spent the second half of last term on loan with Valencia in La Liga, but failed to score a league goal.

Before that, his 18-month loan spell with Fiorentina was cut short.

In short, his career has stalled and he needs something to get it going again.

Any hope for Cutrone under Lage?

Perhaps a change in the Wolves dugout could reinvigorate Cutrone’s Molineux career?

Wolves spent £23 million (Sky Sports) on him in July 2019 but haven’t seen anywhere like enough from him since.

The fact Parma are in the second tier mean they won’t get anywhere near that fee.

So Wolves could cash in to try and bolster elsewhere, or perhaps Lage will give him a chance in his 4-4-2 system?
