Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone has reportedly emerged as a target for French outfit Marseille.

Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed the 23-year-old is seen as a possible option by the Ligue 1 side, who are looking to bolster their attacking options after a promising start to the 2020/21 season.

Marseille are currently sitting in fifth in the league table on 28 points, but have two games in hand on the teams above them.

Cutrone is currently on loan at Fiorentina, but the expectation is that he will be ending his stint with the Italian side early.

The £16 million signing from AC Milan (BBC Sport) is supposed to be with the Serie A outfit until the end of the season, but hasn’t started a league match this season.

 

There has been plenty of speculation about his immediate future in recent weeks and, at this point, him seeing out his loan at Fiorentina in its entirety seems unlikely.

The Express & Star reported last night that Cutrone returning to Wolves to cover for the injured Raul Jimenez is not out of the question, with the club unlikely to be splashing out this month.

Previously, the Italian struggled to acclimatise and also the consistency of Jimenez prevented him from getting a proper run in the team.

It isn’t really working out for him at Fiorentina, and surely Wolves have nothing to lose bringing him back early.
