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.
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…
So with Cutrone and Mir both off, this leaves us no better off than last year and the whole point of the summer was to increase quality and strengthen the squad, what on earth is going on, are we trying to get relegated

So apparently we have to sell to buy, but yet we keep loaning people out on not selling 🤔

How does the season start in 3 days and after being told we need to ‘sell to buy’ the only player we’ve sold is Patricio..

Another transfer window and yet another loan for Cutrone.
Hopefully he puts himself in the shop window this time round.
Interesting to see what the agreement is with his wages being so high.

Surely we would rather have a transfer fee.
