Wolves are confident on wrapping up the £16million signing of AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone.


Reports from the Italian press confirmed the 21-year-old returned to his homeland on Saturday morning, after leaving the Rossoneri’s pre-season tour in the United States.

Cutrone’s return to Milan is believed to be in connection with the Wolves deal that could potentially be worth £20million.

Cutrone, 21, has scored 27 goals in 90 games for Milan, since breaking into the senior side.

However, playing second fiddle to former Genoa striker Krzysztof Piatek under new boss Marco Giampaolo seems not to be a welcome development to the Italian prodigy.

The ex-Sampdoria chief is keen on balancing the books for the Rossoneri’s as they plan to re-invest the cash that would be recouped in the sale of homegrown Cutrone.

According to the Daily Mirror, Cutrone is set to become Wolves’ second signing of the summer, after they completed the loan signing of Jesus Vallejo on Saturday.

Spain Under-21 international Vallejo, 22, has agreed to a season-long loan from Real Madrid, having made just seven appearances for Los Blancos last term – largely due to injury.
