Cutrone’s agent rubbishes claims of exit

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Donato Orgnoni, the agent of Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Patrick Cutrone, says reports linking his client with an exit are completely false.

Cutrone made the switch to Molineux from AC Milan in the summer on a four-year contract and there was a good amount of hype surrounding his arrival due to his reputation as a rising star.

During his time at the San Siro, the 21-year-old scored 13 goals from 63 Serie A appearances and there was the hope he could take his career to the next level in the Premier League.

However, it has been a struggle for the striker and he has only managed to find the back of the net twice from 19 appearances – those goals coming in the 5-2 league loss to Chelsea and the 2-1 League Cup defeat to rivals Aston Villa.

Reports have already claimed Italy international Cutrone is unsettled in the West Midlands and that talks have started about a potential return to Italy’s top flight with Sampdoria.

It is thought I Blucerchiati are looking to sign the Italian on loan in the January transfer window for the second half of the campaign before buying him in the summer for a pre-agreed fee.

However, Orgnoni has issue a defiant response to these rumours, insisting his client is more than happy in England and is not thinking about a move away from Wolves.

He was quoted as saying by SampNews24: “We’ve never thought of leaving Wolves. I don’t understand why certain news comes out. He remains in England one hundred per cent.”

Wolves, who are on a three-game unbeaten run in all competitions, return to Premier League action on Saturday when they make the trip to the Vitality Stadium to take on a Bournemouth side aiming to bounce back from the 2-1 loss at Newcastle United last time out.

Cutrone, who has only made three league starts this season, will be hoping to be given a chance to impress by manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who is confident the summer arrival will eventually come good.
