Wolverhampton Wanderers has made another Summer signing, announcing the arrival of Patrick Cutrone, from AC Milan. The English club paid €18M for the Italian striker, agreeing on a four year deal to take him away from San Siro.
The 21 year old is one of the most promising Italian strikers. Coming up through the AC Milan ranks, Cutrone made 90 appearances in total for the club, scoring 27 goals and making 7 assists.
Cutrone lost space in AC Milan last season with the arrival of Polish sensation Piatek. Adding to this, the Milanese team is supposedly on the verge of signing Angel Correa (Atletico Madrid) and Rafael Leao (Lille), which would turn the chances of Cutrone playing first-team football rarer.
Adding to this, AC Milan has been banned from Europa League next season, due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) breaches. Meanwhile, Wolves has a chance to get into the UEL group stages, after finishing 7th last season in the Premier League.
Nuno Espirito Santo team defeated the Northern Irish team Crusaders 2-0 in the first leg and will play away tomorrow, hoping to keep the advantage. If they hold on to it, they have to face the winner between of the match Pyunik (Armenia) versus Jablonec (Czechia), to get a chance into making the playoffs and finally grabbing a ticket to the group stage of UEL.
So far this season, besides Cutrone, Wolves have made just another brand new signing: Jesus Vallejo, a center back who comes on loan from Real Madrid. They also made the loans of Jimenez and Dendocker into permanent moves.
Are they going to make a mark in next season of Premier League or will they disappoint the odds?
