Wolves misfit Patrick Cutrone set to join Valencia on loan after being recalled from Fiorentina this month as manager Nuno Espirito Santo refuses to rule out more Molineux signings
- Patrick Cutrone had spent the last year on loan at Fiorentina in Serie A
- But the striker’s 18-month loan was cut off when he was recalled by Wolves
- However the striker is out of favour at Molineux and is now set to join Valencia
Wolverhampton Wanderers are close to offloading Patrick Cutrone on loan to Valencia for the rest of the season after agreeing a deal with the Spanish club for the striker.
Cutrone had been on loan at Fiorentina in an 18-month deal which was due to expire at the end of the season.
However the 23-year-old was recalled earlier this month following a disappointing time in Serie A, having failed to score a single goal this season.

Although he has since made four appearances for Wolves, including two in the Premier League as well as the FA Cup, the striker is now again surplus to requirements in the West Midlands and is close to joining Valencia.
Cutrone joined Wolves from AC Milan in a move worth £20million in the summer of 2019 but failed to settle at the club and in 28 games across two seasons he has scored just three goals.
Wolves boosted their attacking options last week with the signing of Willian Jose from Real Sociedad who went on to make his debut in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea on Wednesday as a substitute.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have endured a tough season and are languishing down in 13th in the Premier League table having not won any of their last seven games, and have been without key forward Raul Jimenez after he fractured his skull against Arsenal in November.
The Wolves boss admitted that his side could still do business before the closure of the transfer window.
Santo said: ‘As long as the transfer window is open, anything can happen. It will be over on Monday – until then, let’s see what’s going on.’
