Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Patrick Cutrone is now set to leave Wolves after the club agreed a deal to sign Willian Jose.
The Italian striker only came back to Molineux this month after an ill-fated loan spell with Fiorentina, but despite the fact he’s played three times since returning, it looks as though he’s set to be shipped out again.
Romano is usually spot on with this type of stuff, especially when it’s a player from Italy, so it seems likely that Cutrone won’t be at Wolves for much longer.
Willian José to Wolverhampton from Real Sociedad, done deal and here-we-go. Total agreement reached today, he’s joining Wolves on loan with buy option [around €19/20m].

Whether or not this is a permanent move or another loan switch remains to be seen.
Fans had recently been calling for Cutrone to get a start ahead of Fabio Silva, and while Willian Jose will fill the void at striker, it’s a shame to see the Italian fail to make an impact once again.
It looked as though the former AC Milan man had been handed a lifeline at the Midlands outfit, but almost as soon as he returned he’s on his way out again.
Where he ends up remains to be seen, there hasn’t been much interest reported in the striker this month, but with Romano saying he’s set to leave, we have to imagine there are interested parties out there.
Cutrone once looked as though he would be a real asset at Wolves with Nuno speaking very highly of him back in 2019 saying: ‘He’s a fighter, and we appreciate it. He’s been working very well for the team. He’s a player that brings a lot of energy when he goes on the pitch.’
Unfortunately, a dip in form has seen him quickly fall out of favour and it seems as though he won’t be at Molineux for much longer.
