Wolves midfielder completes his move to ACF Fiorentina

Patrick Cutrone has completed his move to Fiorentina from Premier League side Wolves on an initial 18-month loan deal with an obligation to buy on a permanent basis.

The Italian maestro returns to Serie A just six months after leaving his boyhood club AC Milan, in a deal worth £16m which allows Wolves to recoup the fee spent on him in the summer. transfer window.

Patrick Cutrone was greeted by the twelfth man of  Fiorentina when he landed in Florence late on Thursday night before completing his medical and signing his contract on Friday.

The Italian player did manage to find the back of the net against Chelsea and Aston Villa in the Premier League.


The Italian didn’t have a start he expected in Premier Lague as he struggled to break into Nuno Espirito Santo’s team throughout his time at the Molineux Stadium, starting nine times out of 24 appearances and scoring three goals across three competitions.

The 22-year-old held talks about his future with the Portuguese manager Nuno Espirito Santo last week and was left out of the side’s FA Cup third-round clash with Manchester United.

When the Molinaux club sealed the signing of Cutrone back in July, the club’s sporting director Kevin Thelwell said: “Patrick is an exciting signing at a very exciting period for this football club.

We have a strong philosophy under the leadership of Nuno [Espirito Santo] of bringing in the right type of people and developing young talent while staying humble and grounded.

“And we feel Patrick perfectly fits into our philosophy.”


But this move by the Premier League side hasn’t worked out, and Cutrone becomes the second of Wolves’ summer signings to have already departed Molineux this month.

Jesus Vallejo was also signed on a season-long loan from Real Madrid but was sent packing early after making just seven appearances.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men sit seventh in the Premier League table, six points off fourth-placed Chelsea.
