Patrick Cutrone has made 34 appearances across two half seasons, scoring four goals; Wolves looking to bolster their attacking options during this transfer window with no comeback date pencilled in for Raul Jimenez after the striker fractured his skull in November.

Wolves have recalled Patrick Cutrone from his loan spell at Fiorentina with the striker expected to immediately go back into the first-team squad.

The 23-year-old moved to Florence in the 2020 January transfer window on an 18-month loan deal but has failed to start a Serie A game this season.

In total the Italian has made 34 appearances across the two half seasons, scoring four goals - three of which came in consecutive games following the Serie A restart in July.

The Italy U21 international struggled to break into Nuno Espirito Santo's team after joining from AC Milan on a four-year deal in July 2019.

Cutrone only started nine times out of 24 appearances and scored three goals across three competitions before moving back to Italy on loan.

On Cutrone's imminent return, Nuno Espirito Santo said: "We bring him with hope he can stay here and help us. It is a tough moment to operate in the market. We want to rebalance our squad. The idea is for him to help us."
