Patrick Cutrone is set to leave Wolves on a temporary basis once again.
The Italian striker is reportedly joining Serie A side Empoli, who last season achieved promotion back to the top-flight.
Cutrone had featured a fair amount in pre-season for Wolves under new manager Bruno Lage.
Some thought the fact Lage was getting a really good look at him meant that he would be sticking around at Molineux for 2021/22.
But that won’t be the case, with it now being widely reported he is returning to his homeland. The star has already been pictured at the airport.
Speaking about this decision, Cutrone said (via Football Italia): “I chose Empoli because it’s a great club and a great place to play football. I tell the fans that I am really fired up.
“I can’t wait to get to know you all, get on the pitch and tear things up.”
Cutrone to do a Rafa Mir?
Lots of fans are struggling to see how it benefits Wolves, given Lage only has Fabio Silva and Raul Jimenez as his striker options.
Maybe the intention is for Cutrone to play regularly and perhaps he can enjoy success back in his homeland, just as Rafa Mir did last season.
The Spaniard scored 16 goals, and has attracted plenty of interest in the transfer market as a result.
