Wolves look set to miss out on the signing of Patrick Cutrone with the player not overly keen on a switch to Molineux, according to Sky Sport Italia, as quoted by Football Italia.
The Birmingham Mail had claimed that the club were in talks over a deal worth around £20 million.
Cutrone’s switch to Wolves may have hit a snag, however, with the player preferring to stay in Serie A.
Current club AC Milan are trying to raise the funds required to sign Angel Correa for £49 million from Atletico Madrid.
They would dearly like Cutrone to head for Wolves, but it appears he will take some convincing to do so.
The centre-forward came through the academy ranks at the San Siro. In 90 competitive games for the Italian giants, he has netted 27 goals and registered seven assists.
Wolves were a great team to watch last season, finishing seventh on their return to the top flight and qualifying for the Europa League.
On that basis, Nuno Espirito Santo must make sure he only signs players that want to be part of a very special project.
Wolves have ambition beyond belief and they don’t need anyone rocking the boat, so to speak.
If Cutrone is unsure over whether or not to sign for the club, then Santo should look elsewhere.
With 27 goals in 90 games, he is hardly prolific. Wolves would have a been a decent move for Cutrone but if he’d rather stay in Serie A then so be it.
With Raul Jiminez in fantastic form last season, the Italian would have likely been second fiddle anyway, so this isn’t the end of the world for Wolves.
