Wolves transfer news: Patrick Cutrone offered to Rangers

Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone has reportedly been offered to Scottish giants Rangers.

According to Football Scotland, the 24-year-old has emerged as a potential signing for Giovanni van Bronckhorst.

The Italian has endured a fairly miserable time at Wolves since his move to the club back in 2018.

He moved to Molineux for £16 million, but has never convinced at the club and always been behind Raul Jimenez in the pecking order.

In recent times, Cutrone has been away from Molineux out on loan.

Last term he was with Empoli, where he made 31 appearances, scoring just three goals.

In the 2020/23 season, he was with Fiorentina, where he had been from the season before, but was recalled in January to provide a bit of cover when Jimenez was injured.

He was then loaned out to Valencia, where he barely featured.

It was reported a few weeks ago that Cutrone was likely not going to be a part of Bruno Lage’s first-team plans for the coming season.

Following that, Wolves then headed out to Alicante, with Cutrone staying behind.

Apparently, he has now been offered to Rangers. But according to Football Scotland, any move would hinge on whether Alfredo Morelos leaves Ibrox.

The report also claims there is interest from Cutrone from teams in the English Championship.

Wolves need to offload Patrick Cutrone, as striker is reportedly offered to Rangers

Wolves need to accept that the Patrick Cutrone transfer just didn’t work out and offload him as soon as possible.

It is a real shame given what the club spent on him and the potential he had upon joining the club.

But he has always struggled to convince at Molineux, and he’s also had a hard time out on loan as well.

It is probably best for all parties for the £63,000-a-week player to move on from Molineux permanently.

Rangers may not offload Morelos, but perhaps a Championship club would be keen to take him or maybe a club back in his homeland where he really made a name for himself.
