Wolves ace Cutrone claims he's looking for a new club
Wolves centre-forward Patrick Cutrone has claimed that he’s looking for a new club.
The striker spent the first half of last season on loan with Fiorentina, making 13 appearances. However, he was recalled by the Midlanders after which he featured in two FA Cup ties.
The Molineux Stadium outfit then sent him off to Valencia to complete the season. He endured a horrible time with the La Liga outfit, failing to start a single game for the Spanish side.
Speaking further about his future, Cutrone said he wasn’t worried and that he wants to be a starter again.
When talking about his future, Cutrone 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.”
“I’m not worried about the future. The important thing is to be ready. That’s why I’m training and I want to go back to being a starter. The market has just started. We are working with my agent to find the best solution.”
TBR View: Wolves may be forced into keeping Cutrone despite his desire for new club
This summer proves a crucial one for the Midlanders as they look to recover from last season.
A range of issues popped up during the course of the season which leaves the club in a perilous position.
The most crucial of all was the lack of goals within the team. Wolves scored just 36 times across their 38 Premier League games.
As a matter of fact, their top scorer(s), Ruben Neves and Pedro Neto, scored just five times. That’s one less than Raul Jimenez managed, despite the Mexican missing 28 fixtures.
The Mexican’s return date from his fractured skull is still to be revealed. Meanwhile, Neto is out until after the start of next season with a serious knee injury.
And with the current state of the market, Bruno Lage may be better placed to retain the 23-year-old Italian.
Failing to strengthen the attack could leave Pedro Neto feeling frustrated. The figure was in sensational form last campaign, attracting many of the big clubs in England.
Keeping him for as long as possible and building a team around him is a key target for Wolves.
Cutrone clearly wants to leave, however, Wolves are better placed to keeping the player at the club for next season.
