Official: Wolves sign Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan

Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers have this evening confirmed the signing of Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan.

Milan stint

On the back of a prolific stint in the Rossoneri's Primavera setup, Italian hitman Cutrone was introduced to the first-team ranks of Milan at the beginning of the 2017/18 season.

The now 21-year-old subsequently went on to enjoy an impressive debut campaign in senior football, notching 10 goals and 2 assists across 28 Serie A appearances (17 starts).

As such, Cutrone was widely-expected to kick on and showcase his abilities as a potential first-choice option at centre-forward last season.

This, however, did not come to fruition.

All told, the once-capped Italian international managed to find the net just 3 times in 34 league appearances (though he did score 4 times in 5 Europa League outings).

Wolves switch

As such, despite his obvious talent and goalscoring potential, rumours had begun to mount of late that Milan were ready to cut their losses on Cutrone.

English outfit Wolves had long-been the club most persistently-touted as a potential destination for the youngster, with Nuno Espirito Santo eyeing backup to first-choice hitman Raul Jimenez.

And, on the back of widespread claims over the last 24 hours that a deal was on the verge of completion, Wolves have this evening confirmed as much, with Cutrone having put pen-to-paper on a 4-year deal at Molineux:

AC Milan have since also confirmed the news:

Though no official word has been forthcoming regarding the fee involved, the BBC report that Wolves splashed out £16 million, with considerable bonuses also likely attached.
