Wolverhampton Wanderers have officially confirmed that they’ve recalled Patrick Cutrone from his loan spell with Fiorentina.
The 23-year-old was sent to Florence on an 18-month deal last January, which means he was supposed to stay at the Artemio Franchi Stadium for the whole of 2020-21. However, two factors obviously influenced the matter, causing the loan to be cut short.
Firstly, Cutrone’s loan at Fiorentina wasn’t going as well as it was expected to. He was the third-choice striker under Cesare Prandelli this term, behind Dusan Vlahovic and Christian Kouame in the pecking order, and all of his 11 appearances in the Serie A were introductions off the bench.
Secondly, Wolves are still expected to be without Raul Jimenez for a long while, even though the Mexico international has returned to training following a nasty head clash with Arsenal’s David Luiz which left him with a fractured skull in November. They were reportedly interested in signing Divock Origi from Liverpool, but recalling Cutrone from his nightmare spell in Italy obviously seemed like a more economical solution.
