Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Patrick Cutrone wants to leave Molineux.
The 23-year-old endured a tough 2020/21, in which he started at Fiorentina, returned to Wolves for a couple of weeks in January, and then went to Valencia.
He struggled for game time all term, and it seems the player is ready for a fresh start.
Cutrone has given an interview to Il Giornale and talked up a possible return to his former club AC Milan.
He said: “Today, I’m looking for a team that is determined to bet on me and allows me to play continuously. Right now, I need to have the trust of the coach and of the club. Wearing the Milan shirt has always been beautiful.”
Cutrone’s time at Wolves has been a failure.
Unfortunately, he could not really compete with Raul Jimenez.
And he didn’t make the most of his time at Fiorentina, before opportunities eventually dried up for him there.
With Fabio Silva looking promising, it is difficult to see how he now fits in.
Wolves are said to be in need of a few player sales this summer, and one would imagine he’ll be one.
That said, he is unlikely to fetch a big fee given his struggles. That will be a frustration for Wolves officials given he cost £16 million to sign (BBC Sport).
On social media, some fans have been giving their reactions to Cutrone’s comments.
There was a mixed response, with some people showing sympathy for the Italian:
I understand his sentiment.. you need to get starts to improve and show what you can do.. and you need to show what you can do to get a good move. He was never going to be 1st choice at Wolves with a fit Jimenez. But attitude in training counts too.

That’s a pity. Thought he could really provide something for us in Bruno’s system.
Oh well, if he’s looking to move on, move him on. https://t.co/BQZ8yirpkO
