Patrick Cutrone is reportedly set to join Empoli on loan.

The striker is supposedly set for another stint away from Wolves, despite Bruno Lage seemingly challenging him to prove his worth at Molineux.

Fabrizio Romano has reported that an agreement has been reached between the two clubs.

The player is now en route to finalise things, and an announcement could soon be on the way.

It is a somewhat surprising move.

Lage handed him plenty of minutes in pre-season and the Italian actually did look pretty sharp. It had looked as though he was out to make an impression.

Then Lage’s comments came, and it seemed Cutrone would actually play a part for Wolves this season.

But it seems now he will return to his homeland again.

One wonders if a move to Empoli was the topic of conversation when Cutrone met his representative a few weeks ago.

Some Wolves fans have been giving their reactions to the news on social media.

The move has certainly not gone down well, with many seeing this as something that just leaves Lage short.

That said, perhaps someone has been identified to come in as a replacement…
