Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Patrick Cutrone joined Fiorentina on an 18-month loan deal in January.

The striker signed for the Premier League club from AC Milan in the summer of 2019, but limited opportunities in the first half of the last season saw the 22-year-old return to Serie A. 

La Viola have an ‘obligation’ to make the Italian’s temporary stay permanent next summer, but there’s been no mention of the conditions that must be fulfilled before exercising this option. 

Giovanni Branchini, the agent of the Wolves owned player, has now revealed those details during an interview with Radio Bruno Toscana. The representative also stressed the negotiations were made difficult by the English club.  

“We did everything to bring Cutrone to Florence and he is very happy to be here. He expects to have the same chances as the other strikers,” Branchini was quoted as saying by TuttoMercatoWeb.

“He never enters with the muzzle on his face, but on the contrary, he always shows a lot of grit. Let’s not forget that Cutrone is just 22 years old.

“The negotiation for him was very difficult because Wolverhampton wanted to have the chance to buy the boy back. In order to trigger the redemption obligation, Cutrone must play 26 games as a starter and has already played 11.” 

All of those starts were from last season as Fiorentina manager Giuseppe Iachini has not included the attacker in his starting XI this campaign. 

Cutrone has been restricted to just 41 minutes of action this season, which came across three league appearances.
