Report: Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone now being chased by two Italian teams

Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone is reportedly being eyed by two teams from Serie A.

It was reported last week that Parma were interested in the player’s availability, given their goalscoring issues this season.

TMW claimed the outfit were eyeing a possible loan swoop.

Now, Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that Udinese have joined the race with the 23-year-old liking the idea of a switch to them.

The Italian journalist says Wolves are waiting to sort out a work permit for new signing Willian Jose, which should arrive either today or tomorrow, and then a decision will be taken on Cutrone.

The star, of course, has only just returned to the Black Country after having his loan spell with Fiorentina cut short.

The star had been there since January and had been due to remain until the end of the 2020/21 season, but a lack of minutes saw Wolves exercise their option to bring him back early.

It had been thought that Nuno Espirito Santo was going to count on Cutrone to cover for the injured Raul Jimenez.

The manager still might, but rumours are gathering pace that another loan move could be on the cards for the £16 million signing (BBC Sport).

Cutrone would be permitted to play for a third club this season, after FIFA rules were changed amid the Covid-19 pandemic (via Daily Mail).

A risk to loan Cutrone out again

Wolves have really struggled with injuries this season, and they’d be back to square one if anything happened to newbie Jose.

Perhaps Wolves could Sanction a move for Cutrone so long as they can bring him back in an emergency.
