Wolves have confirmed the signing of AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone for a fee believed to be around £23m.

Cutrone's arrival at Wolves was confirmed on Tuesday evening after the 21-year-old passed a medical at the club.

Personal terms were already agreed between the parties and Cutrone left Milan's pre-season tour of the USA early ahead of the move.

Cutrone, who has 15 caps for Italy U21s, came through the ranks at San Siro.

He scored 27 goals in 90 games for Milan, who were keen to sell in order to meet Financial Fair Play requirements.

The Italian becomes Wolves' fourth signing of the summer. Nuno Espirito Santo's side have already signed striker Raul Jimenez from Benfica for £30m.

Cutrone said: "I'm very pleased to be here because the club really wanted me. I'm very happy and want to give my all for the team.

"We are very pleased to have a player of Patrick's ability join the club and look forward to him being a part of Nuno's squad in another historic season for Wolves."
