Wolves transfer news: Patrick Cutrone a target for A.C. Monza

Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone has reportedly emerged as transfer target for A.C. Monza.

According to Corriere dello Sport (via Calciomercato), the 24-year-old could be heading back to Italy once again.

Cutrone spent last season on loan at Empoli, where he made 31 appearances and scored three goals.

Wolves had hoped for him to enjoy a productive season like Rafa Mir did with SD Huesca.

That would have either seen him become a first-team option at Molineux again, or at least have raised his transfer value after it dipped significantly after the 2020/21 season.

But it was not a great stint for Cutrone. And Wolves are now facing the prospect of offloading him for a fraction of the £16 million it cost to sign him from AC Milan in 2019.

Monza are said to be interested in him.

There were reports previously that Genoa were also eyeing the forward.

Calciomercato say there are some Serie B clubs also keen on him. But the star would prefer to stay in the top-flight. Monza will participate in Serie A in 2022/23, after sealing promotion for the first time in their history.

Cutrone’s loan move to Empoli just didn’t have the desire effect.

It was the right call to send him there, with Rafa Mir excelling with Huesca showing the value of a loan move back to a player’s home country.

But it just didn’t work out, and Wolves will now be offloading Cutrone for very little money.

It makes no sense to loan him out again since his contract expires next summer.

The club just need to accept it hasn’t worked out, cut their losses and move on.
