Wolverhampton Wanderers are close to concluding the £16 million signing of AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone, according to The Mirror.
The Molineux outfit have been relatively quiet in the transfer market this summer, especially given how much they spent in the corresponding period 12 months earlier.
However, Wolves have confirmed the signings of Leander Dendoncker and Raul Jimenez after the duo impressed in the Premier League last season while on loan with Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.
Adding attacking reinforcements would be a sensible move by the Molineux outfit, who were reliant on Jimenez last season for goals and to lead the line.
Wolves have also farmed Helder Costa out to Championship side Leeds, meaning Nuno has one less option in the final third.
The report suggests that Cutrone’s future is away from Milan and the player has intimated interest in moving to the ambitious Premier League outfit.
The Italy international’s capture would be an impressive piece of business for Wolves, who will be looking to replicate last season’s heroics and have a good run in the Europa League.
Cutrone has starred at Milan when given an opportunity to consistently play and has all the attributes to follow in the footsteps of a wealth of world-class Italian centre forwards.
For Wolves, his addition would take much of the reliance away from Jimenez and provide competition for places in Nuno’s attack.
