The latest in Wolves’ pursuit of AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone
AC Milan boss Marco Giampaolo does not see Wolverhampton Wanderers target Patrick Cutrone as part of his plans, according to reports in Italy.
The 21-year-old was developed through the famed academy at the San Siro, before making his debut in 2017.
After a rip roaring start to life in the senior team, Cutrone struggled last term, scoring only three times in Serie A and falling behind Krzysztof Piątek in the pecking order.
Giampaolo is now looking to evolve his attacking options with a number of incomings and outgoings forecasted.
Milan are in the process of trying to raise funds for Angel Correa who could be set to sign with the Italian giants in a huge €55m switch from Atletico Madrid.
Longtime Wolves reported target Andre Silva is on the brink of completing a move to Monaco for around €30m.
Wolves are believed to be in ‘advanced talks’ with the Italy international over a proposed move to Molienux, with a reported fee of around €22m mooted.
The striker has travelled with Milan to the United States as part of their pre-season preparations, but that has already proved to make little difference, after Silva was sent home from the same trip over the weekend.
The Rossoneri have also been linked with Racing attacker Matias Zaracho, as Giampaolo plans wholesale changes of his squad.
Wolves meanwhile have yet to bring in any new arrivals to the senior squad. Last season’s top scorer Raul Jimenez is expected to return to training today as he aims to be ready for their Europa League opener later this week.
